Publications & Media

Academic publications

We actively publish our scientific outputs in peer reviewed journals in evolution education, science education, and the interdisciplinary human sciences. Below is a selection of recent publications.

Our Teacher's Guide

One of the core educational opportunities provided by evolution, behavior and sustainability sciences is the rich interdisciplinary nature of their core concepts, principles, methods, and skills.

How can you engage your students in understanding these concepts and developing these skills?

Our creative commons teacher’s guide is a great place to start! Providing a fun and easy read, the guide will walk you through the big picture of current scientific thinking across evolution, behavior and sustainability science, in ways that are relevant for students of all ages, across traditional school subjects.

The guide provides you with a foundation for using the wealth of resources from our sister-project, GlobalESD.org, to begin designing lessons or units that work for you and your students.

The teacher’s guide is an evolving document – so please, contact us, if you have ideas, comments, questions, or feedback of any kind. We are available to think with you about how to implement ideas from the guide in your school and classroom.

Evolving Minds: Learning as Evolution, Evolution as Learning

This article explores the relationship between the scientific and vernacular use of the evolution concept as it relates to individual and social learning processes. We argue that the systematic exploration of learning as an evolutionary process, and evolution as a learning process holds untapped educational potential, a potential that is hampered by systemic conceptual biases among mainstream evolution educators.
