Cumberland Project workshop to assist faculty in the design of sustainability-related courses
Instructors teaching a course during the 2011-2012 academic year with sustainability as a major theme may be interested in participating in the Cumberland Project, a two-day workshop hosted by Vanderbilt’s Program in American Studies and the Vanderbilt Center for Teaching on May 9-10 that is designed to assist faculty in the design of courses around issues of sustainability. This workshop will be part of a larger effort to launch a teaching and learning community on these issues across campus. Particular emphasis will be placed on environmental education that is highly interdisciplinary in scope and inclusive of a wide array of environmental studies across the natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities. Participants will receive a $500 stipend to aid in course enhancement. The application deadline is January 15.
