Interested in ways sustainability themes can enrich your courses?  Join us for this one-day workshop to examine the connections of courses across diverse academic disciplines with sustainability. 

We'll begin by asking the questions, "What is sustainability?" and "What uniqiue contributions and perspectives do different disciplines offer to sustainability?"  Next, we'll discuss strategies and examples to enrich students’ learning of the central concepts and skills from your courses through sustainability themes. We'll present opportunities for integrating applied sustainability projects (ranging from a single assignment to a semester-long project) into courses through the Sustainable Communities Partnership.  You'll hear from a panel of faculty about their experiences, learn what resources are available to you, and meet other faculty interested in sustainability.

Drs. Amel and Dahmus will hold office hours the following day to work one-on-one with you to apply what you learn to your course.

Breakfast, lunch, and $350 stipend provided.  Space is limited.
