ESAC Faculty to Hold Workshop for Integrating Sustainability into Courses
The Academics Subcommittee of Penn's Environmental Sustainability Advisory Committee (ESAC) is calling for proposals to participate in a university-wide faculty workshop on implementing sustainability across the curriculum. The workshop aims to revise an existing course or create a new course (taught in the 2012-13 academic year), in any discipline, that integrates sustainability as a theme.
Requirements for participation:
- The majority of students in the course must be undergraduates—for an existing course, the majority of students have been undergraduates, and a proposed course should be designed for undergraduates;
- Sustainability must be integrated thematically throughout the course;
- and faculty will commit to attend a 1-day workshop April 26, 2012 and co-supervise a student research assistant in the summer of 2012 to help research course design, materials, and assignments.
To apply, please submit a one-page proposal to workshop leaders Jane Dmochowski (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Ann Greene (email@example.com) describing the new or existing course and indicating the reason for integrating sustainability into the course. Participants in the workshop will be placed with a paid half-time student summer research assistant in the summer of 2012. Proposals should be submitted by January 21, 2012.
