ECOJUSTICE is a course taught out of St. Frances Bateman and College of Education U of S in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. It emphasizes the importance of the ecosystem in today's ever-changing global society.

Important issues surrounding the environment are discussed. Topics include economic, cultural and social factors in relation to our surrounding ecosystem.

Students learn through a 'Problem-Based Learning' (PBL) model. Is it a new methodology? PBL is not a new model of instruction. Plato and Socrates required that their students think, retrieve information for themselves, search for new ideas and debate them in a scholarly environment. However, this process differs from the teacher-dominated approach used in most educational settings. Students are also given the opportunity to discuss course content using a number of technologies that encourage a paperless work environment. It is just one example of bringing awareness to the impact we have on our ecosystem and how we can reduce our footprint...thus improving life.
