SESYNC - Teaching with Case Studies Short Course - Now accepting applications!
SESYNC invites applications for a short course, Teaching about Socio-Environmental Synthesis with Case Studies to be held at SESYNC in Annapolis, MD on July 30-Aug 2, 2018. Through the short course, participants will learn about the case study method for teaching and engage in discussions about teaching the concepts and competencies students need to understand and address complex, socio-environmental problems. Participants will also design and create a case study for teaching; each individual or team will commit to producing one case that will be shared via the SESYNC website. The short course is open to faculty, postdocs, graduate students, and other professionals, and all cases must focus on a socio-environmental issue. We encourage teams (max of 4) to apply together, but individuals are welcome too. We also encourage case designs to include quantitative skills development and opportunities for students to work with data. Travel expenses for selected participants are covered by SESYNC.
