Nancy McGee

Senior Manager, Education & Training, Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA)

Nancy McGee has been employed by Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) since 1993. She has spent the majority of her teaching career engaging students at overnight field centres but in her present role as the Senior Manager, Education and Training, she focuses on multiple portfolios, including evaluation and assessment, funding opportunities, program development, and teacher and community engagement as they relate to non-formal education experiences. Central to her role are the challenges and opportunities of integrating and sustaining authentic outdoor experiential learning experienced while ensuring stakeholder and formal education system values are met. Dr. McGee completed her PhD in Education at York University, where she explored how educators’ values intersect with their praxis, as well as how they measure the impact of environmental and outdoor experiential education (OEE) activities they offer.
