The more I speak with independent educators, the more in awe I am of their work. This project is more than the contributions freelance educators make to their communities.
It is also about answering the following questions:
Who are these people who pick themselves?
Who is doing their work anyway and dancing with fear and uncertainty?
I have learned a lot through my conversations and the online survey. I am opening up the survey again and will keep it open through October 31, 2019. You are invited to complete the Freelance EE survey and share your perspective about working as a freelance professional in natural resource fields, environmental education, and interpretation. Your anonymous replies will be grouped with other anonymous responses.
Thank you for helping me describe how people learn about nature and the environment outside of the classroom.
If you know of others who may be interested in this survey, please share this post with them. Thank you.
