Project Summary

Following the Piedmont Project experience, I re-organized my course on sustainable development. In previous years, I focused more on development theory and applied research projects which were designed to contribute to Emory’s sustainability vision/values. For this new class, I integrated more experiential learning, out-of-classroom experiences, and broadly defined course themes which promote holistic approaches to understanding and scholarship. I incorporated assignments that will ask students to think of our class themes using traditional classroom approaches like a term paper and midterm exam, but I also included more creative and expressive assignments such as photography, creative writing, sketching, and digital video production. This new version of my sustainable development class promotes the idea of sustainable development as a tool for social transformation in the so-called developing world and at home.
