Online workshop – Sustainability Across the Curriculum

January 20, 2020 - March 15, 2020

This online course is designed for higher education instructors, wishing to infuse issues of sustainability (ecological stability, social equity, and economic vitality) into their curriculum regardless of the discipline. Sustainability issues cross all disciplines and the intent of this course is to identify those areas of intersection. Effective assessment of critical thinking skills, collaboration, creativity, and the ability to analyze, discuss and create solutions to real world sustainability problems will be explored.

This course will provide:

  • a set of tools and resources to utilize across the curriculum
  • an introduction to the meaning of sustainability
  • comparison of current definitions
  • exploration of ecological stability as a pillar of sustainability
  • exploration of social justice/equity as a pillar of sustainability
  • exploration of economic vitality as a pillar of sustainability
  • exploration of the use of service learning to teach sustainability
  • exploration of systems thinking
  • brainstorming and creation of one well-developed sustainability assignment to use now
