TELI 2009

Program Description

In May 2009, TELI participants explored issues related to climate change and climate justice through a series of informative presentations and constructive discussions.

Teaching methods were reviewed to enhance the incorporation of environmental themes to existing or new courses. Emphasis was placed on recruiting faculty participants from a wide range of disciplines. The workshop included interactions with experts, access to resources, and a field-based learning experience.
