Registration for this free workshop is not required. It will help us to plan, however, for you to send your name, title, affiliation, and the title and description of your Fall 2010 course to: Tracy Bee, Director of Academic Initiatives, at email@example.com, ideally by August 6th.
This fall, speakers, festivals, films, music, art, and interactive discussions will help faculty bring active and relevant learning opportunities to their students. This interactive workshop offers faculty, librarians, and associate instructors insights into dozens of exciting events scheduled for the 2010 Themester on "sustain.ability: Thriving on a Small Planet."
How will we thrive on a planet with limited resources and entrenched practices? Sustainability is arguably the most important challenge for the 21st Century, one that will require engagement from experts in all fields and citizens in all walks of life. Whether your course already engages sustainability themes or whether you are imagining a new connection, this workshop is for you. Facilitators from Campus Instructional Consulting, Anthropology, Biology, Communication and Cutlure, and SPEA will help you to enrich your fall courses with Themester events.
By the end of the workshop, you will have planned one or more lessons that incorporate Themester activities into your fall syllabus. Workshop participants will also receive a preview of opportunities for students to show their work in the Sustainability Themester's closing exposition.
