This is a guest post from the Center for Energy, Environment and Sustainability and the Office of Sustainability:
Wake Forest faculty are invited to enhance their teaching and engagement with sustainability issues by participating in the 2017 Magnolias Curriculum Project. No prior experience with sustainability-related issues in the classroom or in research is necessary, and faculty at all ranks and career stages are welcome.
This workshop will explore how we can meaningfully integrate sustainability—broadly defined—into our classrooms. Although we start by taking a close look at Wake Forest University and the larger Piedmont region, we invite participants to engage in local to global comparisons.
The Magnolias Project kicks off with a two-day workshop (May 10-11) that will offer opportunities to extend research and teaching horizons across disciplines and create new networks with fellow colleagues. Following the workshop, faculty participants prepare discipline-specific course materials on their own over the summer. They will reconvene in the fall to discuss their insights and experiences. Participants receive a stipend of $500 ($250 upon completion of the workshop; $250 upon completion of a new or revised syllabus).
Applications for the May 2017 workshop will be accepted until April 17, 2016. Click here to apply for the 2017 Magnolias Project.
