Breaking boundaries in sustainability education
To tackle the obstacles to living sustainably, we need innovative teaching, collaboration across disciplines and creativity. In this panel presentation, four IonE Educators will discuss how they are overcoming traditional boundaries and reaching audiences not usually associated with sustainability. Ned Mohan is creating a statewide high school course for the College in the Schools program that incorporates contemporary approaches to renewable resources. Tiffany Richardson is using professional sports to promote student learning, behavior change and fan engagement through the development of Green Teams. Michelle Garvey is creating a course that meshes gender studies, environmental justice and subjects such as climate and food justice. Elizabeth Hill is developing a course in chemical engineering and energy consumption that will allow students to implement sustainability education projects in their home communities.

Ned Mohan, Professor, College of Science & Engineering, IonE Fellow;
Tiffany Richardson, Lecturer, College of Education and Human Development;
Michelle Garvey, Teaching Specialist, College of Liberal Arts;
Elizabeth Hill, Assistant Professor, Swenson College of Science & Engineering, University of Minnesota Duluth.
