2013 Trillium Workshop: Sustainability Across the Curriculum

Posted on

The 2013 Trillium Workshop will be held Wednesday, May 8, 2013, from 8:30 AM to 5 PM. This workshop assists faculty who teach in any discipline, helping them to connect sustainability-related concepts to the material they teach and to incorporate sustainability-related topics and practices into their courses. All faculty are welcome, and faculty with an interest in sustainability who do not yet explicitly connect it with their course content, especially in large introductory-level courses, are particularly encouraged to attend.

This annual workshop also builds a community of Trillium Fellows to support each other in this exploration. Participants from previous workshops will help lead this year’s sessions.

Up to ten eligible Duke faculty can elect to receive a $500 stipend to a discretionary account for participating in the program.  Participants will attend the one-day Trillium workshop on May 8 and monthly meetings in Fall 2013 to discuss planning and implementing sustainability components in a specific course.  Participants will also prepare a blog post about their course for the Trillium website.

To register, please complete the registration form, preferably by May 1, 2013. For more information, visit the Trillium website or contact Eileen Thorsos (eileen.thorsos@duke.edu, 919-613-8207).
