Finger Lakes Project sustainability curriculum development workshop

A specialized faculty training program to support sustainability curriculum development
Developing 21st century leaders who understand their roles and responsibilities as global citizens requires a big-picture, “systems” approach to problem-solving, so faculty are responding to the need to infuse considerations of sustainability into courses within their academic discipline. Integrating less familiar knowledge domains within one’s disciplinary curricula – teaching “outside the lines” - requires specialized training and support. The Finger Lakes Project workshop provides interested faculty with that specialized sustainability curriculum development support.
