Climate Workshops for College Faculty

2012 Workshops for Sustainability and Climate

The topics of sustainability and climate change offer important opportunities to engage students in science that is multidisciplinary, complex and societally relevant. Thus, we are pleased to announce a suite of workshops for college faculty addressing various aspects of sustainability and climate science in higher education. Note that many of these workshops have application deadlines in early March.

 

The CLEAN project is offering two online workshops to promote effective strategies for teaching climate science. These workshops will include presentations, interactive demonstrations of successful classroom activities, and collaborative projects with other workshop participants.

 

Communicating Climate Science in the Classroom – April 2 – 11, 2012

Two workshops from the InTeGrate project will address sustainability at two different scales: first at the level of departments, programs and degree pathways, and secondly in the design of individual courses. These workshops are designed to foster an integration of geoscience and other disciplines in the teaching of sustainability.
