Archived web info - ECI Change in the Heartland

Posted by Morgan White on June 4, 2014

Change and the Heartland curriculum
Change and the Heartland is a publication of the Environmental Change Institute and the Agroecology and Sustainable Agriculture Program that seeks to bring the complex science of Climate Change challenges and address it in a understandable and yet meaningful manner. During the summer of 2012, a group of nine faculty from community colleges and higher educational institutions came together to develop student activities based on the 16 articles of the Change publication. The group completed a number of student activities in problem based learning style and a general course outline for an entry level course on climate change, using the Change publication as a primary resource.
