This week, I took part in SUNY Oneonta’s Sustainable Susquehanna Curriculum Workshop, an annual seminar that prepares faculty to teach courses with a focus on sustainability (more here). Next fall, I’ll teach a new composition syllabus that engages with environmental humanities discourses and questions, tentatively titled “How to Live in the Anthropocene.”
I’m grateful for the support my institution offers faculty across ranks and disciplines for pedagogy and curriculum development. The interdisciplinary workshop introduced me to colleagues from other departments, fostered conversation, and encouraged collaboration. It also helped me get to know our campus and see firsthand some of the sustainability projects underway.
