TEACHING SUSTAINABILITY AS A CROSS-CURRICULUM PRIORITY:

CLIMATE CHANGE RESOURCES FOR TEACHERS 
Professional Development Program Provided by

TROP ICSU: Trans-disciplinary Research Oriented Pedagogy for Improving

Climate Studies and Understanding In Collaboration with

The University of Adelaide, The Botanic Gardens and State Herbarium of South Australia and Adelaide Botanic High School

May 30 and 31, 2019

Background: Climate Change is one of the most significant issues of our times and a key factor affecting the pace of sustainable and equitable development of every country. Educating younger generations about the causes and effects of global climate change is imperative because developing solutions will depend on them. Australia has chosen to tackle this challenge by integrating sustainability across the curriculum, an approach that this workshop aims to support. 

Project: TROP ICSU is a global project supported by the International Science Council and other partners ( https://tropicsu.org ).  It aims to improve education about of climate change across the curriculum by developing teaching tools and lesson plans for teachers at the high school (secondary school) and undergraduate (Bachelor's degree) levels. These practical tools bring climate-related examples and case studies into diverse learning areas (e.g. mathematics, science, humanities and social sciences) for easy use in the classroom. Through a series of workshops, the project seeks to provide resources that are place-based and relevant to different regions, and fits naturally in to the cross- curriculum priority of Sustainability.

Workshop: To provide detailed information on how to use these educational resources, and to seek collaboration to review/improve and expand these education resources for Australian classrooms, we will hold a professional development workshop for secondary and undergraduate teachers of all disciplines.

 Details: The workshop will be held May 30 (4pm start) and May 31, 2019 at the University of
Adelaide with visits to Botanic High School and Adelaide Botanic Gardens.  Registration for the
workshop is free and includes meals and materials.

 How to get involved: Please send expressions of interest to Cesca McInerney, Department of Earth Sciences, University of Adelaide at cesca.mcinerney@adelaide.edu.au .
