SUBJECT: Peak to Peak Project - Two day workshop - Teaching Sustainability at CU-Boulder
Sustainability, as you know, is our collective and unavoidable challenge. The
University of Colorado Boulder is strategically leading efforts to meet this
challenge. We are therefore pleased to offer the second annual two day workshop
as part of the Peak to Peak (p2p) project; the p2p workshop is for CU-Boulder
faculty to refine how they address sustainability issues, from all disciplines,
in the courses they teach and to use the campus as a practical working space
and teaching lab for sustainability.
- This will be a two day workshop for faculty to learn in a cross-disciplinary
context about major sustainability topics and to explore opportunities to
integrate sustainability into the university's diverse curriculum.
- Basic mastery of these key core concepts will become the foundation around
which participants will explore the sustainability connection to their academic
focus and strategize to develop curriculum change programs around sustainability.
- This workshop will provide multiple opportunities to network with and join
faculty from around campus who have successfully integrated sustainability into
their courses/syllabi, to learn specific strategies for doing so, and to
explore cross-collaborative potential.
- Learn about and tap into available resources for course lectures and
activities on sustainability.
- Faculty and staff will showcase some of the best sustainability operations and
practices that are present on campus as possible teaching opportunities.
University of Colorado Boulder faculty members in all ranks and every academic
discipline and are encouraged to apply. Each participant will receive a $500
stipend after completing the workshop and formidably integrating sustainability
into at least one upcoming course they teach.
When and where:
Monday, August 20 and Tuesday, August 21, 2012 on the CU-Boulder campus.
