Bringing the World In
In this experience, students visit a location as a group or in pairs to experience real-world contexts and perspectives relevant to sustainability problems and solutions. The experience immerses students in a specific place, giving them the opportunity to learn about it firsthand rather than through another medium like documentary or panel presentations and to observe and interact with stakeholders in context.
Example Learning Outcome: Interpersonal Competencies
Examine how “senses of place” does or can contribute to understanding sustainability problems or inform solution options.
Featured Real-World Example
