Teaching & Learning Winter Festival 2014

The Power of Curriculum

Sustainability - Learning - Innovation

February 5-6-7, 2014

The CTL is partnering with the Sustainability Action Fund (SAF) to deliver a sustainability-focused focused version of the Winter Teaching and Learning Festival. The Power of Curriculum Festival will offer a blend of traditional and innovative ways for participating faculty to explore the intersection between integrating sustainability content into their current courses or developing new courses, selecting appropriate pedagogies and enhancing their teaching.
