Teaching Sustainability across the Curriculum Series

The Schreyer Institute for Teaching Excellence is doing a series on Teaching Sustainability Across the Curriculum. There is even one today:

What does "sustainability" mean in pedagogical terms? - Teaching Luncheon

  • Thursday, February 5
  • 11:45 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

Today's environmental problems are so complex that solutions will almost surely require interdisciplinary knowledge and cooperation. Thus, faculty in all fields of study may want to consider what it would mean to teach sustainability principles and practices in their courses. So how do we come to common and useful definitions that will encourage educating for sustainability across disciplines? Come and discuss this question with panelists, Don Brown and Andy Lau.

I will be at the PASA conference but am going to jet across campus to get to this. Perhaps we can get Brown to come to speak to us.
