Sustainability

Faculty Development

An important part of any university setting is providing faculty and teaching staff with continued learning opportunities for improving and updating their instructional content. Given that UW-Green Bay is Eco U and that the new general education requirement beginning in Fall 2014 includes a 3-credit sustainability education component, the campus Sustainability Committee, in collaboration with the Center for Advancement of Teaching and Learning (CATL), began offering a faculty development workshop.

2014-15 Sustainability Integration Professional Development Workshop


The purpose of this opportunity is to integrate sustainability concepts within a wide variety of UW-Green Bay courses so that instructors in courses outside of the disciplines most typically connected with sustainability, such as the natural sciences, gain tools and awareness to integrate sustainability concepts or components into at least one of their courses. For example, a psychology professor might want to look at the topic of behavior change in terms of recycling efforts.

By integrating sustainability topics or modules into a wide variety of courses across the curriculum, students will get exposed to concepts in an interdisciplinary way that helps build their critical thinking skills on this important topic.

Twenty faculty members completed a project, and it is hoped that this opportunity can be offered in subsequent semesters to further increase the dissemination and incorporation of sustainability across the curriculum.

Several completed projects have been made available for download (see below).
