Join University of Utah faculty in making sustainability teaching more exciting and relevant through the Wasatch Experience.
The Wasatch Experience & Sustainability Teaching Scholars
The Wasatch Experience engages educators in a two-day workshop on integrating ecology, economy, and equity into curriculum across campus. Upon program completion of the two day workshop participants will become eligible to apply for a small grant or teaching assistant award through the Sustainability Teaching Scholars Program.
Wasatch Experience 2022 will be held May 18 & 19.
Participants who are interested in pursuing the Sustainability Teaching Scholar Designation, please see information below.
Sustainability Teaching Scholars
Sustainability Teaching Scholars are faculty who have experience integrating the sustainable development goals into their curriculum and have completed from the two-day Wasatch Experience workshop.
Participants who have completed the Wasatch Experience workshop are eligible to apply for a small grant or teaching assistant award and enroll in the Sustainability Teaching Scholars program.
Faculty in the program will design and implement an action plan to integrate the big ideas of sustainability into their courses and engage in Sustainability Faculty Learning Community events throughout year.
See a list of past Wasatch Experience Participants and Sustainability Teaching Scholars here.
Sustainability Faculty Learning Community
A faculty learning community (FLC) comprises an interdisciplinary group of faculty devoted to enhancing teaching, learning, and the university experience. FLCs have been shown to increase faculty interest in teaching and learning while providing a safe space for faculty to explore and implement new approaches, give and receive feedback, and generate a knowledge base accessible to the broader University community.
The Sustainability FLC is comprised of individuals currently working towards the sustainability teaching scholars designation, previous Wasatch Experience participants, and faculty interested in sustainability education.
Sustainability Faculty Learning Community Events happen once a month during the fall and spring semesters.
Fall 2022 schedule TBA.
