Teaching Climate Change by Creating an ‘Earth Community’
July 5 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDTFree
This webinar will explore how to teach introductory classes in such a way as to create an ‘Earth Community’ where all students are intellectually and emotionally engaged. Additionally, students are invited to create and work on ‘service learning projects’ (loosely defined) in order that their work may help advance the knowledge and understanding of the social side of climate change. This combination of intellectual and emotional engagement, as well as student driven service learning projects, make these classes transformative for both students and less directly, though nevertheless connected, the larger society.
