Sustainability Across Curriculum Faculty Development Workshops
These faculty development workshops provide strategies and examples for enhancing teaching aimed at preparing students to address the challenges of sustainability in their professional, civic and personal lives regardless of discipline.
The Committee for the Integration of Sustainability Across the Curriculum – with support from the Office of Vice President for Instruction, Center for Teaching & Learning, Odum School of Ecology and the Office of Sustainability – is offering a two-day faculty development workshop for infusing sustainability into academic curricula at UGA.
The faculty-led workshop will provide opportunities for cross-disciplinary interaction, definitions and examples of sustainability education, discussion of learning outcomes and student engagement, and tours of on-campus sustainability resources. Participants will have the summer to revise an existing syllabus or create a new one.
$500 Faculty Development Grants are available for up to 20 participants. Applications are accepted from all current UGA faculty.
