This short program is built around a book, 147 Tips for Teaching Sustainability, that was authored by several faculty members at Colorado State University and others who represent a range of disciplines, levels, and institutions. This workshop will introduce a range of concepts for teaching sustainability—perhaps the most compelling issue for this next century—as well as allow sufficient time for discussion and audience interaction. In addition, various methods of feedback will be offered, including the principles that can guide peer feedback and coaching and the use of a mid-semester student feedback system so that lessons learned can be reinforced and extended.
Goals and Target Audience:
Increase awareness about the concept of sustainability and how it can best be taught and learned.
Instructors and teachers at all levels and in all disciplines are welcomed.
