Preparing Students for the Environmental Workforce
Velez, Lil Fox; Wolfson, Jane L.
Metropolitan Universities, v21 n1 p27-40 2010
One of the challenges of designing curricula in environmental programs is finding ways to cover the social, scientific, and communication content needed by professionals in the field. The authors describe a sequence of writing, critical thinking, and civic engagement experiences during the junior and senior years. Students practice communicating across disciplines and stakeholder groups while learning about the complex environment of the Chesapeake Bay and surrounding watershed preparing for environmental careers.
