Faculty Development Workshop
September 19th & 20th, 2014
Project Sin Fronteras is a 2-Day Workshop designed to serve as a transformational platform that infuses Sustainability Concepts and Practices into the UTPA & UTB curriculum beginning Fall 2014. This program provides participants with information and skills to produce a new* or revised course syllabus. Participants who complete and commit to teaching the workshop syllabus within one academic year of graduation will receive a $500.00 stipend.
Sustainability address three realms of human/nature interaction: the environmental, the social , and the economic. External accrediting bodies are beginning to require the inclusion of sustainability within the curriculum (e.g. Business, Engineering) and recent studies have begun to link sustainability curriculum to attracting disadvantaged students to STEM fields, its role in co-curricular and service learning, and as a means of student engagement.
*Please note that revised courses will receive preference over new courses; new course proposals should be permanent additions to the program/university curriculum.
