Faculty Learning Community for Toward Collaborative Climate Change Problem-Solving Curriculum
In partnership with the nascent Climate Change Faculty Working Group (CCFWG), we propose an FLC which allows interested faculty within each college an opportunity to collaborate across campus in the creation of new, or refinement of existing, climate change problem-solving based curriculum. CCFWG’s mission is to foster CSUSM as a primary actor in regional climate change problem-solving and towards this goal we propose a collaborative and interdisciplinary approach to curriculum development, aimed at preparing our graduates to actively participate in and address local climate change issues upon graduation.
The purposed of this FLC is to nurture strong and explicit curriculum collaboration among faculty across campus in order to provide expertise to CSUSM students to address climate-change problem-solving upon graduation.
This FLC will serve to:
1) connect faculty from different disciplines who are already or want to teach climate change topics in their classrooms
2) provide pedagogical training to faculty who are interested in incorporating climate change topics in their course curriculum.
