Creative Ideas for Sustainability Across the Curriculum
February 26 @ 11:00 am - 12:15 pm PST
In this engaging session taking place at the WOHESC conference, we will be sharing syllabi and pedagogical approaches to teaching Sustainability Across the Curriculum, with panelists representing a variety of disciplines who have participated in Western Washington University’s Sustainability Fellows program. The invited panelists represent faculty from English (poetry), linguistics, anthropology, and biology (among others). Resources, teaching activities, and syllabi will be shared at this session.
Adapted from Emory University’s Piedmont Project, each academic year, Western’s Sustainability Fellows program enhances curricular initiatives in sustainability. The program brings together 8-10 faculty members from all disciplines across the university to design or re-design existing courses to better incorporate sustainability into the curriculum. Participants engage in meetings with other Sustainability Fellows, explore sustainability from a variety of perspectives, and re-design an existing course (or create a new course).
The Washington Center for Sustainability Education at Seattle University and Western Washington University is one of 13 regional AASHE Centers for Sustainability Across the Curriculum. Centers host workshops and other professional development opportunities throughout the year. If you aren’t able to attend this event, please consider attending one of the other upcoming events organized by a Center.
