Spotlight on EEV
Who is EEV?
Environment Education Victoria (EEV) is the peak body for Sustainability and Environment Education, connecting with individuals and organisations across early learning centres, primary schools, secondary schools and universities.
EEV’s membership is approaching 1000 VCE and other students, pre-service teachers, professional teachers and community educators, as well as government and corporate sustainability practitioners from across Victoria. EEV provides access to educational expertise and high quality resources.
“Oppida were a game changer for our organisation. They guided us through change and delivered us to a new outlook, one which places EEV in a position we’ve never been in before: to have the ability to deliver online resources. This has made us, for the first time in our 40-year history, truly connected to our members across all parts of Victoria. Oppida made this happen because they have talented people, a “change is achievable” mindset and the ability to take people on the journey.”
Oppida collaborated with EEV’s subject matter experts to design and develop primary and secondary Zero Waste Hero school courses in order to unlock EEV’s digital learning potential. Oppida supported EEV by reviewing and proposing the best possible online platform in order to provide the much needed flexibility to adapt the content based on geographical needs of schools and ease of content delivery with minimal teacher training. As part of the project, Oppida created a Zero Waste Hero brand and developed teaching guides to support the delivery of both courses.
Project datesAugust 2020 –September 2020
One of the core challenges of this project was that many of the EEV team members didn’t have any prior experience in designing online courses or working with external agencies. In addition, the courses needed to be designed with a high level of flexibility, enabling seamless integration of existing school resources. The new courses needed to be delivered online without the need for substantial teacher training.
In order to unlock EEV’s digital learning potential, Oppida conducted thorough market research to understand the gaps in the market; developed a catchy Zero Waste Hero brand to support EEV’s existing strong brand; dedicated extra time and resources to support the subject matter experts through the learning design stage and created effective teaching guides to ensure seamless adoption of the courses across Victorian schools. Oppida ensured that EEV transitioned online in an agile, collaborative and efficient way and provided an opportunity to review current ways of working in light of new insights around digital learning.
