New and Creative Ways to Embed Climate and Sustainability in your Class: Approaches from Five Faculties at UBC

May 31, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

This event is part of the CTLT Spring Institute, taking place from May 29–June 1, 2023.

A growing number of UBC faculty from across disciplines are incorporating sustainability and climate change content into their courses and programs. Participants in this session will hear from faculty members from Applied Science, Arts, Education, Medicine, and Science who have first-hand experience in developing innovative and interdisciplinary approaches to sustainability and climate education with support from the Sustainability Hub.

If you are interested in hearing from colleagues about their journeys in creating new courses and programs that introduce innovative revisions to introductory courses, use immersive media to engage students, or create community engagement opportunities, be sure to register for this session.

The topics discussed strongly support UBC’s goal of Transformative Learning by showcasing interdisciplinary, experiential and practical teaching approaches. They also support the goal of Local and Global Engagement through partnerships with organizations off campus.
