Sustainability Across the Curriculum Workshop at Santa Clara University
This workshop is for faculty members from any discipline who are planning to include a module on sustainability in an existing course or to develop a new course focused entirely on sustainability. We will help participants draw inspiration from multiple visions of sustainability, including the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, academic associations in their field, and their schools’ mission. (A breakout session for faculty members from Jesuit institutions will draw links to Ignatian pedagogy and Catholic social teaching on sustainability and justice.) We will explore how to use the campus as a living lab for experiential and project-based learning about sustainability, as well as options for community-based learning. Exercises will help faculty to begin drafting their learning goals, focal questions, and activities. Participants will leave with resources on designing sustainability curriculum and assignments in all fields.
Apply today Deadline is April 5, 2019.
