This is a two-day workshop, however, we are providing the option of two different attendance formats for Day 1 in order to accommodate a range of travel schedules and learning styles:
Day 1 Distance Option:
Rather than attend Day 1 of the workshop face-to-face, attendees who chose this option will participate in a series of three webinars
covering the following topics: intersections for sustainability and social justice, the prairie bioregion, and using campus as a learning laboratory to stretch departmental budgets. These participants will then convene with all faculty attendees at the BEST Building on Day 2.
Day 1 In-Person Option:
For those who are traveling a greater distance or prefer to participate in the workshop face-to-face for both days. Day 1 will cover the same material as the webinars, led in person by experts and allowing for enhanced discussion. All participants will convene in person at the BEST Building on Day 2.
Day 2 On-site - All Participants:
All participating faculty will be guided through group work, discussion, and learning lab installation visits, with time to brainstorm and share feedback with faculty from their own or other institutions. Day 2 will also call on KU and JCCC faculty who have undergone their own sustainability curriculum integration, as well as students who have taken these enhanced classes. We will also highlight some of the research collaborations that have emerged from these workshops.
Each day of the workshop will include breakfast and lunch, if attending in person.
Registrations will be accepted until Tuesday, May 9th or until the workshop reaches a reasonable capacity to provide all attendees with a quality collaborative hands-on experience.
