Education for Sustainability

Foundations of Education for Sustainability
In this course we will examine how Education for Sustainability (EFS) has become an interdisciplinary field that embodies a holistic and critical approach to the role of education in informing human interactions with the environment and the economy through the lens of equity & social justice. We will use place-based education as our context and service-learning as our pedagogy, while sustainable communities will remain our overarching goal. In collaboration with a community partner, students will identify an authentic need in Addison County and design and participate in EFS through a community-based project. This course will take an active approach to learning and will consist of activities, workshops, projects, and guest speakers, to provide students the opportunity to experience EFS in practice. 3 hrs. lect.
