Apply to the Climate and Sustainability Teaching Fellowship by Feb. 28

Learning Innovation is excited to announce that we have partnered with Duke Climate Commitment to offer a new fellowship program to provide support and a peer learning community for faculty and other instructors who are interested in redesigning an existing course to substantively engage with issues of climate and sustainability, to be taught in Fall 2023 or Spring 2024.

Participants will receive:

  • $5,000 deposited to their Duke discretionary account;
  • resources, support and guidance from pedagogy experts and faculty experienced in incorporating climate and sustainability into course curricula;
  • the option to request $1,750 funding for a graduate student to support the course redesign; and
  • the opportunity to collaborate on course redesign with a group of peers from across campus. 

This Fellowship continues a long history of environmental education and sustainability leadership at Duke, and adds to the Duke community of climate- and sustainability-engaged scholars who wish to instill this engagement in their students. 

The program will run from May 9, 2023, to April 2024, although the majority of the programmatic activities will take place before December 12, 2023. For more information and to apply by February 28, see the full CFP on the Duke Climate Commitment website.
