The National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center invites applications for
the short course, *Teaching about Socio-Environmental Synthesis with Case
to be held at SESYNC in Annapolis, MD on July 25-28, 2017.

Preparing students to tackle urgent and complex environmental problems is a
critical challenge. Problems such as global climate change, water resource
management, and sustainable development are dynamic, multi-faceted issues
that require interdisciplinary and collaborative approaches to solve.

Socio-environmental synthesis is a problem-solving approach that considers
the integrated nature of the environment and human society, and combines
insights, methods, and data from the natural and social sciences to produce
knowledge and inform solutions. SESYNC is dedicated to educating about this
approach and its broad relevance, and to teaching the core concepts and
competencies necessary to understand, research, and address
socio-environmental problems.

Through the short course, participants will engage in discussions about
teaching the concepts and competencies students need to understand and
address complex, socio-environmental problems. Participants will also
design and create a case study for teaching; each individual or team will
commit to producing one case that will be shared via the SESYNC website
<http://www.sesync.org/for-you/educator/case-study-collection>.The short
course is open to faculty, postdocs, graduate students, and other
professionals, and all cases must focus on a socio-environmental issue. For
more information, please visit our website

The deadline to apply is April 18, 2017. Please share with colleagues!
