RGEE: Research group for Ecology Education (GfÖ – Ecological Society)
The Ecological Society Education-Brunch still still a small research group which will never have the numbers of other brunches within the GfÖ. However, the group’s potential RG’s isn’t based on its number when it offers a forum for ecology education “intermediators”. Firstly, two major objectives belong to the group’s major tasks: (i) bridging the specific branches of science and its intermediators; ecology education needs a solid cognitive basis (and the GfÖ offers this forum). (ii) offering a “platform” for the field of educational work. The latter, for instance, may include public relation work for specific projects and use the long lasting experience in the empirical evaluation research. Professional surveys require a specific repertoire of psychometric validities. The special group members come mainly from the first mentioned field, for the second one we are going to make the offer.
