Teacher educator with courses in science education and sustainability education.



Lili-Ann Wolff is Doctor of Education and Asssociate Professor in environmental education. She works as a lecturer in science education. Besides a master and doctorate in education, she has also graduated in science and philosophy.

Since the 1980s she has been involved in sustainability education and since the millennium shift in sustainability education research. Her training and work experience include educational leadership, planning, production of teaching materials and programs, and practical teaching (of all age groups). Likewise, she has written numerous and diverse articles, made evaluations, participated in policy work and performed research both alone and in several national and international project groups.

She has a long experience of international cooperation and networking as a member of many strategic working groups, and she has been engaged in politics on many levels. Her research interest is sustainability education from transdisciplinary and critical views combining education, philosophy, and history of science, natural sciences and arts.

Her doctoral thesis Nature and sustainability: An educational study with Rousseau and Foucault (2011) deals with the ethics of sustainability from a philosophical/historical view. It was awarded with the highest grade (laudatur/A). The topics of her forthcoming articles (2020-2021) are for example We have all been monkeys; Scientific literacy and social sustainability, Nature as aesthetic experience: How to engage small children, Learning in the Anthropocene, and Sustainable leadership: Non-affirmative education as a norm critical approach?
