In 2023, the Office of Sustainability (OS) and the Center for Teaching and Assessment of Learning (CTAL) were happy to partner to advance “Sustainability Connections” and “Sustainability Investigations” courses. We awarded 5 faculty fellowships to explore integrating sustainability into their courses. This 3½ Course Development Institute provided a personalized course design experience where faculty were supported by CTAL (along with their colleagues) to create a new course or revise an existing one. Specifically the fellows, 1) built new or revised student learning outcomes (SLOs) that focus on sustainability, 2) built a major final assignment/exam that emerges from those SLOs, 3) created a plan for including learning activities that prepared students for the major assignment or exam, and 4) created an inclusive syllabus based on the UD Syllabus tool.

The 2023-24 Sustainability Fellows were:

  • Nancy Boyer – GEOG447, Peacemaking and Peacebuilding (Sustainability Investigations Course)
  • Anna Wik
  • Michelle DePhillips – NURS418, Public and Global Health (Sustainability Connections Course)
  • Mercy Achang
  • Carolyn White Bartoo
