Green Teaching Program at 2013 EDUCAUSE Annual Conference
The Green Teaching Program was represented with a poster presentation at this year's EDUCAUSE Annual Conference in Anaheim, CA on October 16, 2013. To download the PDF or PowerPoint version of the poster presentation, click on one of the links below.
The Center for Teaching, Research and Learning and Eco-Sense piloted a Green Teaching Certificate during the 2008-09 academic year. This is part of an attempt to reward faculty members who are green teachers, while giving green courses a familiar face among students. The Green Teaching Certificate is based on a system of self-reporting. Faculty members at American University can qualify for a Green Teaching Certificate by answering a number of questions about their efforts to make their courses more sustainable. Upon evaluation, qualified courses will be rewarded with a seal representing one of five different levels of the Green Teaching Certificate, which can be put on syllabi and Blackboard pages to market courses as green.
