Event Details

The Center for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning, in collaboration with Jennifer McLaughlin, SDSU Sustainability Specialist, is excited to announce that we will be co-hosting the 2021 SDSU Sustainability Institute. This opportunity will provide SDSU faculty an opportunity to learn about sustainability and how to integrate it into their curriculum through the lens of their courses.  The event will be hosted virtually using Zoom and D2L, with a mixture of synchronous and asynchronous sessions.

Brian brings years of experience working in higher education and a wealth of knowledge related to integrating sustainability into curriculum.
