Sustainability and the Curriculum

How should we best integrate the real-world into our courses, and how would doing so benefit our students? This panel will focus on teaching the existential challenge of building a sustainable future, and consider how the social impact of course content can motivate students and foster a sense of belonging. Sustainability, a highly impactful topic that cuts across disciplines, is not only an essential activity in its own right, but also is a useful model for impact-driven pedagogy across the curriculum. Panelists will discuss strategies for integrating such issues into a variety of courses and domain areas, and show how doing so benefits the student experience.
