To celebrate Earth Day, Faculty Development is excited to announce that in Spring 2024 we will be offering another faculty learning community on teaching climate change and resilience! We will send a call for applicaitons in Fall 2023, so we do not have any details yet, but I want to share the good news as you consider opportunities for professional development next year. The faculty learning community is sponsored by the President’s Office and the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences and will be led by Dr. Mark Stemen.
This program is based on last year’s CSU-wide FLC, which received recognition by the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE) and was awarded the Campus Sustainability Achievement Award.
The FLC and Mark’s efforts were also featured in a recent article in the Chronicle of Higher Education, part of their Future Trends in Higher Education, so this project has received recognition beyond just sustainability circles.
As as you prepare to discuss climate change in your classes, as a way to recognize Earth Day, I also want to remind you that FDEV has created a webpage where resources from the FLC are collected. We hope these resources will be useful to you, and we invite you to stay tuned for more information about the FLC in the Fall!
