The Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE) presents its 2015 Educating for Sustainability Webinar Series:
“Higher education is in a unique position to lead the transition to a sustainable world. Colleges and universities have the means to influence students by providing these individuals – tomorrow’s architects, engineers, business leaders, scientists, cultural and spiritual leaders, teachers, journalists, and politicians – the necessary skills to shape existing communities into sustainable societies.
“The challenge of integrating sustainability into college and university curricula is significant and involves writing course syllabi, sitting on curriculum committees, developing student learning outcomes, and creating new academic programs. In addition to educating students, institutionalizing sustainability includes creating new knowledge through research, modeling sustainability in operations and promoting sustainability through community engagement.
“Through the Educating for Sustainability Webinar Series, AASHE provides resources, skills, solutions and tools for all educators and campus change makers. Regardless if you are just starting on the journey of including sustainability in your course syllabi, just starting to organize faculty on campus, or you are a veteran at leading campus-wide curriculum change programs, you will find something of interest in this Webinar Series.”
All webinars are hosted from 3:00-4:30 EST.
