Member School program: Changing Planet Faculty Study Group

The Changing Planet Faculty Study Group, a year-long learning community, is the first of two programs offered by Dickinson College this summer to enhance competencies for interdisciplinary teaching about climate change. The Study Group program begins with a four-day workshop June 28 – July 1, 2011 that will bring faculty together from multiple institutions to explore what we should teach about climate change in our physical science, social science and humanities courses and how we should teach. Participants will share expertise, experiences, lesson plans, and exercises. Subject area experts will lead sessions on climate change causes, consequences, adaptation, mitigation, and policy, as well as the language used to communicate about climate change, cultural perceptions, and ethical dimensions. Members of the learning community will continue to collaborate after the workshop through distance-media and a second 1-day workshop in spring 2012.

The program is supported by a NASA Global Climate Change Education grant and there is no fee for participation (participants provide their own lodging and travel expenses.)

Applications are invited from faculty in any discipline from any college or university and are due April 1st, 2011. To learn more and apply, visit the workshop page on Dickinson's site.
