Sustainability Curriculum Consortium (SCC) is a proud AASHE member. We have worked closely with AASHE over the years, including several co-sponsored webinars on curriculum and pedagogy and multiple presentations at SCC’s Faculty Conferences by faculty representing AASHE’s Sustainability Across the Curriculum Centers. SCC has pledged to continue to work closely with AASHE on curriculum and pedagogy topics, and AASHE’s Julian Dautremont Smith is a member of SCC’s Advisory Council. SCC is especially well-positioned to help the AASHE Centers build capacity and support their regional activities. We do not compete, we collaborate.
SCC has had a presence at the last five AASHE Conferences and we will be there again this year in Spokane. AASHE has granted SCC an agenda slot on Tuesday the 29th at 12:45 PM for an SCC meet-up. Please join us in Room 102C to network with other SCC participants and learn more about our upcoming plans. And we are always looking for folks interested in presenting a webinar or leading an online short course cohort for SCC. Bring your best ideas and let’s discuss!
We recognize that at every AASHE conference there are always conflicting sessions and tough choices, so if you cannot join us for the SCC meet-up, please contact SCC Managing Director Ira Feldman <firstname.lastname@example.org> in advance to schedule a time to connect over the three days (Sunday, Monday or Tuesday) in Spokane.
Ira Feldman is also paired with Dann Sklarew of George Mason to present “Teaching to the SDGs: Experience and Resources for Business & Sustainability Curricula” on Monday the 28th at 11AM in Room 102A. Please stop by to introduce yourself!
We have scrutinized the full conference agenda to identify those sessions likely to be of interest to faculty and relevant to curriculum. We hope our guide to these sessions (see below) will help you plan your AASHE Conference experience.
