The educational programs offered at the Center for Education and Research in Environmental Strategies (CERES)in Australia, provide informal education opportunities for students learning about sustainability. However, without information about teachers' needs, they are unsure how to develop and evolve their programs. This project gathered feedback to better inform the development and evolution of these programs. We surveyed and interviewed Victorian teachers which led to recommendations regarding the design of their programs and pricing model, and to the creation of teacher feedback gathering tools: a program evaluation and survey for prospective schools. By establishing communication with teachers, CERES can design their programs to meet teacher's needs.
