Resource Repository for Sustainability Education and Leadership

Overview and Authors:

Note:  if you look back up to the tabs, there is a drop-down menu that links to each section of this Repository. Though the project was started in 2013, it is very much a living document, with more added all the time, so come back often!

Summary coordinated by Alice Cassidy, In View Educational Development, Victoria, British Columbia (BC), Canada

The Repository before you is the key outcome of a 2012 grant from the Educational Developers Caucus (EDC) of the Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education as a resource repository for sustainability education and leadership. Team members on the EDC grant included Alice Cassidy as project coordinator; Yona Sipos, Doctoral Candidate, University of British Columbia and Braydon Walker, 3rd year undergraduate student, Engineering, Carleton University.

The repository builds on some earlier sets of material and ongoing contributions of a large number of people:

  • Contributions from alumni of the 2009 and 2010 Sustainability Education Intensive (SEI) at the University of British Columbia.
  • Responses to requests sent to members of the POD (Professional and Organizational Development), STLHE (Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education), Managing for Sustainability Discussion and EDC (Educational Developers Caucus) listservs
  • Contributions from participants of Why did the sustainability educator/leader cross the boundary? To walk the talk with learners presented at STLHE, 2012. Montreal, Quebec. (Cassidy, Sipos, Nyrose, co-authors)
  • Material collected and presented during Who? Us? What can EDs do about the really big issues: global warming and sustainability? Presented at EDC, 2013, (Neal, Macpherson, Cassidy, co-authors)
  • Material from other conference sessions at STLHE and EDC by Cassidy and colleagues (Sipos, Nyrose, Neal, Neill, Macpherson)
