In this 75-minute live webinar hosted by Karen Costa and the OneHE team, we will work together to design one climate action-infused learning artifact. Karen will introduce you to curated climate action resources that are ideally suited to easy adaptation in higher ed. You’ll have a chance to brainstorm with your peers, discuss the gifts and challenges of climate action pedagogy, and ask questions. Breakout rooms will be offered but optional for those who want to co-work in small groups, or you can opt for solo work. If you aren’t quite ready to begin the design process, you can also just join and listen along. Climate Action Pedagogy (CAP) is discipline agnostic, so we welcome faculty and staff from all disciplines and departments. Come as you are, cameras on/off, and find support and energy in this community of practice.
This session is intended for these both new to CAP and those who've completed a CAP course or workshop before.
Karen Costa is an author, adjunct faculty, and faculty development professional working to support both faculty and student success in higher education. She specialises in online pedagogy, trauma-aware teaching, and supporting neurodivergent learners.
Here is a testimonial from a recent Climate Action Pedagogy faculty learner:
"I wanted to share a comment from one of my master's in IT Management students about our project on smart microgrids that was inspired by the spring climate action pedagogy co-work session: "The most important thing I took from the experience is something I learned about myself. I learned that energy and sustainability are topics I am now passionate about. I can see myself working in the sustainable energy field in the future. Large monopoly power companies using oil, coal, dams, and gas production are socio-economic problems. Energy choices are changing worldwide with small systems using solar, wind, water, renewable sources, and battery storage. I have a new perspective on my future career and the impact I can make after the class experiences. The student team, professor guidance, research, and interviews with the CWU grid manager gave me a perspective about implementing a technical project with societal impact." I'm so grateful for the co-work session's inspiration and resource sharing that brought this about!"
