*2012 Workshops for Sustainability and Climate*

The topics of sustainability and climate change offer important 
opportunities to engage students in science that is multidisciplinary, 
complex and societally relevant. Thus, we are pleased to announce a 
suite of workshops for college faculty addressing various aspects of 
sustainability and climate science in higher education. Note that many 
of these workshops have application deadlines in early March.

Two workshops from the InTeGrate project will address sustainability at 
two different scales: first at the level of departments, programs and 
degree pathways, and secondly in the design of individual courses. These 
workshops are designed to foster an integration of geoscience and other 
disciplines in the teaching of sustainability.

2012, Stanford University, Palo Alto, CA
*Application deadline: March 5, 2012

*Systems, Society, Sustainability and the Geosciences - July 24 - 26,

The CLEAN project is offering two online workshops to promote effective 
strategies for teaching climate science. These workshops will include 
presentations, interactive demonstrations of successful classroom 
activities, and collaborative projects with other workshop participants.
