Successful implementation of work-related education reforms in the United States requires educators to understand both reform principles and the ways in which work-based and school-based learning can be used to enhance curriculum and instruction. This document is part of Teacher learning in the workplace and community, which contains four educational briefs and five case studies that describe innovative teacher education and professional development programs that support school-to-work and related reforms.

The Advanced Technology Environmental Education Center (ATEEC) aims to promote environmental technology education through curriculum development, professional development, and program improvement in community colleges and high schools. This case study describes ATEEC and highlights its important role as a resource to environmental technology teachers.
