Participants commit to:
- Attend a sustainability curriculum and pedagogy workshop.
- Modify or develop a class or assignment to incorporate sustainability or environmental issues appropriate to their field.
- Attend a follow-up meeting to report on experiences and intellectual process.
Learning for the Cataldo Project participants will come in several forms.
Faculty will immerse themselves in basic knowledge through on-line readings prior to the workshop and formal presentations during the workshop. Topics that may be covered include the local Rathdrum watershed ecosystem, Spokane’s environmental justice and equity issues, public health consequences of sprawl, and current campus sustainability efforts. Outdoor river walks deepen ecological knowledge, and talks by local resource experts expand the educational experience. Concrete examples from Spokane and the surrounding region help to strengthen a sense of place and support imaginative connections for courses. Much learning also occurs in small and large group discussions.
