The Climate Justice Summer Institute is an intensive three-day, workshop-style institute designed to help faculty participants hone their knowledge of climate justice issues and, with significant support, emerge from the Institute with one lesson created and ready-to-go for 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 or the creation of your own lesson. Participants will implement the lesson in one of their courses during the 2019 – 2020 academic year. Conversations with other faculty will help participants develop ideas to apply in their own courses. The facilitator has over 10 years of experience with infusing sustainability lessons into traditional discipline-focused courses, so all participants will be well-supported.
20 PD Hours, 12 seats
$500 stipend (Sponsored by the Provost Office)
Meetings are on Mondays from 12:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m., 7/15, 7/22, 8/5 in D104H
