Sustainability Matters for Undergraduate Teaching and Learning
Fry, Catherine L.; Wei, Cynthia A.
Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, v26 n3 p5-24 2015
A growing body of evidence shows that infusing sustainability into undergraduate courses and programs can simultaneously benefit institutional goals, student learning outcomes, and society at large. In addition to being a globally relevant and urgent topic, sustainability can enhance learning of disciplinary concepts and development of broad 21st-century competencies. The authors examine the rationale for infusing sustainability into undergraduate teaching and learning and conclude by offering examples and resources for doing so.
