Next SCC Webinar

Using Hawken’s Ecology of Commerce with a study guide for discussion and co-creation by students

Friday, April 20
at 2PM Eastern/11AM Pacific

Dr. Jane Talkington
Innovation Scholar-in-Residence
Wichita State University

After years of teaching with Paul Hawken’s classic book on business and sustainability, Ecology of Commerce, Dr. Talkington refined and tested a list of discussion questions as a study guide for Hawken’s book. The study guide is available through Amazon​. In this webinar, you will learn why there is a need for guided class dialogue, what to expect when you use these questions, how the questions allow for students to co-create the content of a course discussion, and how these questions support the flipped classroom format.

Dr. Talkington has taught a wide variety of sustainability courses, online and on campus, at the University of Oklahoma, Oklahoma State University, and the University of California-Berkeley, Extension. In Fall 2018, she joins Wichita State University as the Innovation Campus scholar-in-residence.  She spent a decade as the prototype graduate student in the effort to create a new PhD in Sustainability through the Environmental Science graduate program at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, Oklahoma. Her doctoral studies orbited around Entrepreneurship and Architecture. The result was a thesis focused on how higher education institutions could secure relevance by fostering innovation focused on sustainability-oriented solutions. It included research on innovation districts, innovation campuses, and corporate co-location partnership buildings on campus. A bound version of her thesis “Fostering Innovation” is also available on Amazon.

In her spare time, she is learning how to train her Belgium Malinois as a projection dog. Goose is an excellent student in spite of his novice teacher.
