Call for Proposals for UMACS to Provide Professional Opportunities in Sustainability Education
UMACS is currently soliciting ideas and proposals from individuals and member institutions interested in developing new opportunities for Midwest-focused sustainability education across the curriculum. Recognizing that costs, travel distances, and access to AASHE-sponsored workshops have been limiting factors for people at some institutions, UMACS is exploring ways of facilitating more affordable, accessible, local and regional alternatives.
We recognize that this call probably comes too late for most institutions to propose anything for summer 2014 and are happy to collaborate with interested groups on your own timelines. In addition to helping plan, organize, and facilitate workshops in sustainability curriculum design and faculty professional development, UMACS is also interested in partnering to create opportunities for conversation and sharing examples of best practices via online and webinar formats. .
UMACS has experienced people interested in working with you and your institution to plan, organize, deliver, and support such initiatives on your campus, or at other regional locations. UMACS has previously organized and delivered faculty and curriculum development workshops with St. Olaf-Carleton, University of Minnesota System and UW River Falls.
Interested people should contact Juliana Goodlaw-Morris @ firstname.lastname@example.org.
