International Center for Sustainability Across the Curriculum (ICSAC) Conference
May 19, 2017 @ 8:00 am - May 20, 2017 @ 5:00 pm
Registration Deadline: April 20, 2017
Description: Growing out of the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley’s (UTRGV) successful Project Sin Fronteras, the program has a common goal that brings together faculty from all fields, allowing for an exchange of ideas in a nurturing and enriching collaborative atmosphere. The intensive two-day interdisciplinary exercise helps faculty to explore the shifts in pedagogy needed to incorporate sustainability concepts, problems, or solutions into new or existing courses. How can instructors juggle all of these demands without abandoning disciplinary expertise and designing a syllabus from scratch? In this hands-on, fast-paced workshop, participants will 1) develop a transdisciplinary framing of sustainability relevant to their discipline, and 2) (re)design an existing or planned syllabus using a guided, hands-on process. International faculty, and faculty from across the nation, are invited to join local, state, national, and global participants, providing international experiences while opening a range of collaborative and networking opportunities for all.
