The Environmental Sustainability committee, in collaboration with the Center for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning (CATL), is announcing a faculty development opportunity for the 2014-15 academic year. Given that UW-Green Bay is Eco U and the new general education requirements beginning in Fall 2014 include a 3-credit sustainability component, the purpose of this opportunity is to integrate sustainability concepts in a wide variety of UW-Green Bay courses so the learning outcomes from sustainability-specific courses can be applied in courses that are not typically viewed as sustainability-related (e.g., humanities, arts, mathematics, computer science, professional programs, etc.). Participants will attend a half-day workshop in August 2014 and then implement and assess a sustainability-related activity, assignment, project, etc. in a course taught during the 2014-15 academic year. There is room for only twenty participants. If you have questions or wish to apply, contact Scott Ashmann, environmental sustainability chairperson, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 465-2052.
