Faculty Development Workshop: Bring climate change into your classroom

Join us for a half-day workshop to learn how to bring climate change and sustainability into courses you are already teaching. This workshop will include a brief interactive simulation that introduces climate change science and the social dynamics of decision-making. We will then have a collaborative planning and discussion session during which CCI faculty will then be available to work with you. 

The Climate Change Initiative (CCI) brings faculty, students, and communities together to address one of the greatest challenges facing humanity: climate change. The Initiative draws its members from disciplines as diverse as environmental science, public health, engineering, education, management, sociology, political science, art, and others. We invite you to join this effort!

Date and Time:

May 10, 2016: 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Lunch will be served.
