Thirteen sets of teacher education materials have been developed, edited and printed so far, in two categories:
- Generic ‘core’ materials, which provide an orientation to the programme, and conceptual grounding for the subject specific topics
- Subject-specific topic units to support teaching in the Curriculum and Assessment Policy (CAPS). These materials are being developed for specific phases, and will be posted on the site as they become available. Each unit provides an orientation to a particular environmental learning focus, and is divided into three core areas: core knowledge, teaching practice and assessment practice.
All Fundisa for Change resources are freely available for educational purposes, with acknowledgement.

ORIENTATING ‘CORE’ MATERIALS:
Another interesting resource that the KIC: Climate Change Education Project has developed is an extensive digital library of materials for all KIC partners. This Open Educational Resources (OER’s) that focus on teaching and learning about climate change and sustainability.
The primary purpose of this OER is to provide the teaching community (from primary, through to teacher educators) with relevant text and media resources to enhance their teaching practices and courses. You can do general searches by main categories such as climate change topic, foregrounded approach, or target audience. Each general category is then broken down into subtopics to help you find your areas of interest. The best part is you can also support the platform my adding your own resources and materials.
