This 5th Annual Faculty Training is sponsored by PCC’s Sustainability Practices for Academics and Resources Council (SPARC) and is based on a cross-disciplinary curricular change model drawn from The Association for Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE)’s Ponderosa/Piedmont Projects. Directly supporting the achievement of PCC’s Core Outcomes on community and environmental responsibility, critical thinking and problem solving, and cultural awareness, this workshop is open to college and university faculty from all disciplines and perspectives across the greater Portland region.
The workshop provides resources for faculty to meaningfully integrate issues of food, racial, environmental and economic justice and their impacts on the health (physical, social, environmental, economic) of our communities into their classrooms, including speakers, facilitated discussions and teaching tools. The group will also tour SE’s new Learning Garden and learn about PCC’s multi-faceted student-focused programs. Participants will receive workshop materials and follow-up curriculum development support to any participant.
Registration Required. Morning refreshments and a full lunch provided.
$20 fee for non-PCC faculty.
