Sustainability, broadly defined, is becoming an increasingly important part of Humber's identity, as can be seen in the Strategic, Academic, and Business Plans. It is also a word that is coming up often in conversations about the institutional learning outcomes. Yet, for many, it may be difficult to envision how principles of sustainability could apply in every course across the curriculum and the institution. Why is sustainability relevant to the world of accounting? What could paramedic students learn about sustainability? Do music degree students really need to learn about sustainability? In this session, we will discuss the U.N.'s Sustainable Development Goals, and a panel of faculty members representing a wide variety of disciplines will describe ways that they have incorporated these concepts, principles, and/or practices into their lessons. These exemplars will serve as a launching point for participants to discuss how they might incorporate sustainability into their own classrooms and curriculum.
- By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to articulate at least one U.N. Sustainable Development Goal that applies to one of their courses, which they could integrate into their teaching.
