Join us for a full-day workshop to integrate sustainability into an existing course. AU is committed not only to carbon neutrality by 2020, but also to educating our community about local and global sustainability issues. The goal of this workshop is to create an opportunity for faculty from all disciplines to engage with a diverse cohort to learn how to include sustainability concepts in any course.
Participants will be introduced to sustainability concepts and examples of sustainability concepts that have been included in courses across the curriculum, as well as to campus and community resources that are available to help faculty integrate sustainability into a course. Reflection opportunities and small group discussions will provide faculty participants with an opportunity to connect sustainability broadly to their discipline and then to a specific course. Participants will leave with a plan to integrate sustainability into a course. Faculty who edit a course syllabus for the next year will be recognized by the Office of Sustainability.
