This workshop aims to engage, inspire, and support faculty members from across disciplines who are interested in voluntarily infusing relevant climate change and/or sustainability concepts into their courses. The overall goal of this curriculum program is to boost climate change/sustainability education at UCI, especially targeting those students for whom climate and sustainability may not be a focus.
Who: UCI faculty members
What: A Faculty Skills-Sharing Workshop
Where: The workshop will be hosted at the Steele/Burnand Anza-Borrego Desert Research Center during the height of spring wildflower season in the desert. Lodging and meals at the Research Center will be provided.
When: 4:00 pm, Friday, April 15 through 4:00 pm, Saturday, April 16, 2016. The Research Center is family-friendly and participants may opt to spend the night Saturday to explore the Borrego Springs region.
Why: To integrate climate and sustainability into already existing courses at UCI, especially targeting students who wouldn’t be exposed otherwise to these concepts
Incentive: Participating faculty members will receive $1000 upon completing the workshop to assist with subsequent course revisions. Faculty will also receive an additional $200 for attending a follow up Faculty Networking Event on Friday, November 4, 2016 to showcase their revised course material (note: revised courses do not need to be taught by November 4, 2016, however, course materials will need to be updated to include sustainability by this time).
