Climate Justice Faculty Learning Community

Polar bear in a melting iceberg

The Climate Justice Faculty Learning Community is an asynchronous workshop focused on climate issues. The learning community, which is modeled on a teaching square, is designed to help participants hone their knowledge of climate justice issues and, with significant support, to teach one lesson in an existing course that addresses the looming threats of climate disruption and mitigation. Participants are not required to have any pre-existing specialization or knowledge of climate change. We will begin with group brainstorming, and a search of existing curriculum repositories, followed by supported adaptation of an existing lesson to one of your courses. Participants will then implement the adapted lesson in one of their own courses. Conversations with other faculty, and observations of other courses, will give faculty ideas to apply in their own courses. Each participant will receive a copy of Paul Hawken’s book Drawdown (2017) to support their work. The facilitator has over 10 years of experience with infusing sustainability lessons into traditional courses, so all participants will be well-supported.
