Through the Lens of Sustainability Discussion Sessions

February 10, 2014

As a follow up to conversations with individual faculty around the University, we will bring together groups of faculty to discuss what it means to teach our fields through the lens of sustainability. In particular, we will consider how incorporating sustainability as an intellectual frame into courses can help shape what and how we teach.  The Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) will help facilitate this discussion with the goal of developing key ideas and/or questions that can be shared with faculty across the University.   Through this discussion, we hope to inform and enhance the ability of faculty both to teach sustainability and to teach students how to examine diverse topics through a sustainability lens.
