Environmental Communication Pedagogy and Practice: Preconference Seminar 9am-5pm, Saturday, November 19, 2014


Facilitators: Mairi Pileggi, Dominican University of CA, Eric Morgan, New Mexico State University


Environmental communication connects scholars interested in issues of climate change and sustainability with those interested in the ways environmental groups design campaigns and communicate about science. This seminar focuses on our role as scholars, as teachers and as practitioners.


We want to hear how you teach environmental communication courses.  What innovative strategies are you using in your classes?   What are you doing to deepen leaning? Have you flipped your classroom?  If so, what strategies are most effective? 


How have you made learning connected? How are you collaborating across disciplines?  What research and other creative projects have you undertaken with your students?  How do you embed your course into local spaces, places, and environments?  How do social media figure in your instruction?  Is reflection a key component in your courses?


What advice do you have to share?  What do you want to know more about?

Bring your syllabi for a syllabus review workshop.   We’ll focus on how to design assignments, develop rubrics and assess course student learning outcomes.



Scholars, educators, practitioners, and students across the discipline (and related fields) are invited to submit via email one of the following: (1) an abstract (400-500 words) or completed version of a paper the applicant would like to prepare and present for the seminar (2) a brief (200-300 word) statement of interest in the seminar indicating questions, topics, and themes the applicant would like to discuss as part of a general roundtable, workshop, or seminar sessions. Papers accepted for the seminar will be considered for an edited book on the pedagogy and practices in environmental communication. Seminar applicants should include a brief biographical sketch and include sample syllabi if possible. Seminar applications and supporting materials should be submitted via email in MSWord by March 20, 2014 to: Mairi Pileggi, mairi.pileggi@dominican.edu or Eric Morgan, emorgan@nmsu.edu
