Climate Across the Curriculum: An Octopus’s Journey

February 15 @ 1:00 pm 2:00 pm EST

Dr. Sandra Goldmark, Columbia University

What do we need to infuse climate into our courses? Join Sandra Goldmark (Barnard College and Columbia Climate School) for a discussion about climate-responsive teaching in almost any discipline. Goldmark will share her experiences incorporating climate concepts into her theatre courses; expanding climate teaching at Barnard College; and piloting a Climate Ready curriculum at the Columbia Climate School. Participants will be invited to share their own interdisciplinary climate teaching experiences and provide feedback on the Climate Ready framework.
