Teaching the Environment with Collaboration: Photo Essays across Disciplines
Stock, Paul V.; Darby, D. Bryon; Meyer, Kate
Applied Environmental Education and Communication, v17 n1 p29-40 2018
Much has been written about the benefits of interdisciplinarity and transdisciplinarity for addressing environmental issues, but how do we teach such collaboration? Here, we describe our experiences attempting to foster collaboration between undergraduate students from sociology, environmental studies, and photography. We describe and reflect on a new joint assignment between an environmental sociology course (cross listed with sociology and environmental studies) and an upper-level photography course. We describe the collaborative experiences of both the students and faculty/staff involved in its creation and realization. We conclude by identifying areas of improvement for future collaborations.
