Environmental Philosophy Teaching Resources Project:Call for Syllabi, Assignments, Class Activities, and other Pedagogical Resources
Environmental Philosophy Teaching Resources Project:
Call for Syllabi, Assignments, Class Activities, and other Pedagogical Resources
As part of the ISEE Mentoring Initiative, ISEE would like to renew and expand its online teaching resources. We seek syllabi, assignments, community-based learning projects, and class activities related to environmental philosophy, environmental ethics, environmental justice, and cognate fields. Our goal is to provide resources for stand-alone environmentally-focused classes, as well as for environmentally-related units in broader courses (e.g., a section on climate refugees in a political science class, a case study on the Standing Rock Sioux resistance to the Dakota Access Pipeline in an Indigenous studies course, a discussion of environmental risk assessment in an epistemology class, etc.).
ISEE is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion, and we specifically seek teaching resources that support and foreground engaged and inclusive pedagogies.
Some specific kinds of resources we seek include (but are not limited to):
Please submit teaching materials by April 30, 2020 via the following Google forms link: https://forms.gle/oSBuueUweBL5c6tGA
The submission form includes a request for a few keywords and a short description of each contribution (e.g., “This is a topically-organized syllabus for an introductory course in environmental ethics with a climate ethics/climate justice theme”; “This assignment asks students to link their lived experience to readings on attachments to place.”). Please fill out a separate form for each submission.
Note: if you would like to submit materials and lack a Google account or don’t wish to create one, please send your materials, along with keywords, description, and your name, email, and affiliation, to firstname.lastname@example.org, with ISEE Teaching Resources as the subject line.
Questions about the project can be directed to Simona Capisani, ISEE Mentoring Director (email@example.com) or Marion Hourdequin, ISEE Vice-President (firstname.lastname@example.org).
