Learn with us! We invite colleagues from continental US and Internationally to learn with University of Hawaiʻi faculty. We value your contributions and manaʻo (wisdom).
The Grand Challenges of Conservation combines Education for Sustainability and Science Education for New Civic Engagements and Responsibilities (SENCER) to design project-based curriculum with an emphasis on learning outcomes assessment, place-based learning, and meeting of wisdoms between Western Science & Indigenous Wisdoms. This event is a professional development opportunity for faculty that includes collaborative and individual work time to draft practical, usable research and course designs. All participants will be contributors and have opportunities to network and make meaningful connections across disciplines, between campuses, and with community partners and practitioners. We hope to inspire new ways of teaching and learning and support the work of implementing and assessing new assignments, projects, and syllabi.
