Ardoin receives NAAEE award for research
The North American Association for Environmental Education (NAAEE)—a network of more than 20,000 educators, researchers, and organizational members in more than 30 countries—has recognized Nicole Ardoin with one of its highest honors for “Outstanding Contributions to Research.”
Ardoin, an associate professor at Stanford Graduate School of Education and a senior fellow at the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment, has worked for more than two decades to explore the role of education in informal settings as it relates attitudes, values, knowledge, and longer-term practices of sustainability and natural resource conservation. In this work, she has collaborated with parks, museums, aquariums, nature-based tourism programs, and philanthropic foundations, among other community-based organizations.
Ardoin has authored or co-authored more than 50 publications and advised more than a dozen PhD and masters students in environmental studies and education.
