Description:
During summer session 2017, the Department of English and SoGES, with support from the Career Center, launched an experiential learning workshop that combined CO150 and CO300 with an experimental 100-level sustainability course. Working with four community organizations, students got hands-on experience in project planning, implementation, and presentation, while also learning key concepts in sustainability, composition, and career readiness. This PDI session is the third in a series about the course and will focus on the transdisciplinary vision of the course, course implementation, reflections on course implementation, and plans for the future. The session will be mostly discussion-based, with the opportunity to discuss implications of implementing the same experiential, transdisciplinary model in other courses and contexts.
Goals and Target Audience:
This session is aimed at teaching faculty and curriculum designers who have a strong interest in combining traditional classroom concepts/skills with real-world application. The purpose is to discuss workshop results and possibilities to implement a similar design into other courses, with the ultimate goal of identifying strengths and areas for improvement of this model for further implementation.
