The primary aim of the TC Teach-In is to host a space to be able to bring faculty, academics, and practitioners from different academic disciplines together to discuss the intersection of climate change and their respective research areas, academic interests, and courses. We see this conversation as a spark to ignite a broader conversation throughout the college of how the TC community can prepare students to address the climate crises. The primary topics which will be discussed are climate change, climate justice, education for sustainable development, and environmental education.
The Teach-In seeks to create a community of scholars who see their research intersect with climate change and urge TC to adopt a whole-institution approach to combating climate change and climate injustice. This includes integrating climate change learning across academic disciplines offered at TC, research, teacher training programs, and an eco-conscious leadership model to ensure that TC graduates are climate literate and prepared to take action in their respective professional careers.
*This event is hosted by the TC Center for Sustainable Futures
