Faculty Learning Community on Educating for Sustainability

The Faculty Learning Community (FLC) model invites faculty to explore common problems, share ideas, and develop solutions collaboratively across disciplines. The FLC will function as a gathering of equals who together will determine how to engage this topic and collectively develop a final product.

The Faculty Learning Community on Educating for Sustainability will address many different topics related to sustainability in teaching and learning, ranging from sustainability practices for the classroom to curricular and assignment-related topics. Members will gather at least once a month over the course of the AY19-20 to learn together and work toward the Community’s agreed-upon outcomes.

The goals of the Faculty Learning Community are to:

  • Bring faculty from various disciplines together for monthly interdisciplinary conversation around topics related to sustainability education;
  • Provide a faculty-led space to deepen understanding of how to employ sustainability-related values, practices, and assignments in individual courses and throughout the curriculum;
  • Produce a final “product” or event that is shareable with the larger GU teaching and learning community.

Who Is Eligible?

All Georgetown faculty are eligible to participate in the Faculty Learning Community.
