Project Summary

This project brings together faculty and students from across departments and Faculties to co-create an interdisciplinary, open educational resource on sustainability and environmental ethics. The structure and open nature of this resource will allow faculty and students to contribute to and provide commentary on a collection of case studies through the lens of their respective academic disciplines. It will break down silos by encouraging professors and students to draw from additional disciplinary perspectives to those in their courses. We will hold a “sprint” to start the resource, but students and faculty will continue to add to it later. Graduate RAs will work with professors to incorporate the resource into their courses and evaluate its success, with emphasis on leveraging the resource's openness to create new, student-generated cases as well as disciplinary, research-based commentary on cases. With new contributions from students and faculty, the resource will evolve and expand over time.
