Bringing the World In
Students read a newspaper and collaborate on assignments to explore a real-world sustainability problem or solution. Students gain a sense of currency of sustainability issues and how public discourse deals with sustainability, and develop awareness of media as a player in sustainability problems and solutions.
Example Learning Outcome: Systems Thinking
Identify drivers and feedback loops, as well as resulting impacts and unintended consequences of sustainability problems and solution options reported on and how they benefit and harm stakeholders.
