Energy, Power and Transportation part of Integrate:Workshops and Webinars:Systems, Society, Sustainability and the Geosciences:Courses
Tom Termes, Black Hills State University
This course provides an understanding of the principles of energy, power, transportation, and applied technology. Topics, among others, include technological literacy, history, and industrial uses of energy, power, and transportation, including the theory, application, conservation, and control of these resources.

Environment and the Earth Class part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Service Learning:Examples
Compiled by Suzanne Savanick, Science Education Resource Center. Based on Bixby et al. (2003), Ecology on Campus: Service Learning in Introductory Environmental Courses, Journal of College Science Teaching, v. 32, n.5, o, 327-331.
Approximately 150 undergraduate students in the Environment and the Earth class at the University of South Carolina participated in a campus environmental service-learning project. The students collected data on lighting, water fixtures, recycling bins, and trash in five academic buildings. Signs were hung in the buildings and data were collected a second time.

Energy and the Environment part of Courses
Chris Sinton, Ithaca College
This course is designed to help students understand the earth energy system and the potential impact of human activity. Students are asked to gather and analyze data regarding energy generation, efficiency, and environmental impacts. The course focuses on quantitative analysis of energy systems, but also covers the socio-political and economic components.

Solar Energy part of Integrate:Workshops and Webinars:Systems, Society, Sustainability and the Geosciences:Courses
Scott Cummings, Kenyon College
Solar Energy (CHEM 108) is a one-semester chemistry lecture and discussion course designed for students majoring outside of the natural sciences. With an emphasis on quantitative reasoning, the course explores the chemical principles associated with societal fossil-fuel use (and associated environmental problems) and solar-energy technologies that could offer sustainable solutions.

Sustainable Communities part of Courses
Martha Henderson, The Evergreen State College
Sustainable Communities address the role of social capital in maintaining and promoting local healthy communities. This course focused on the role of sustainable farming and energy production in reaching at-risk youth in rural communities undergoing economic and social change.

Pacific Seminar 2: Sustainability part of Courses
Gene Pearson, University of the Pacific
The course introduces students to the concept of sustainability and how sustainability policies are developed and implemented in corporations, universities, and non-profit and government agencies. Students explore the best ways for government agencies to encourage individuals and organizations to implement sustainable practices.

The Earth's Energy Resources (GEOL 115) part of Courses
Richard Kettler, University of Nebraska at Lincoln
This course examines the geology of energy resources. Emphasis is placed on those energy resources that society values most highly and consumes most voraciously. We emphasize those aspects of geology that are particularly relevant to the production of energy resources and to attempts to estimate the ultimate global recovery of these resources. We also consider briefly policy issues related to energy resource development, production, and utilization.

GEOS 195 "Introduction to Fossil Fuels" part of Courses
James Staub, The University of Montana-Missoula
A a rigorous introductory course designed to provide an overview of geologic, geochemical, and geophysical principles and concepts associated with fossil fuel origins, exploration, development, production, and utilization. The course starts with a general introduction to fossil fuels and geologic principles and ends with a discussion of environmental issues associated with fossil fuel use.

Sustainable and Fossil Energy: Options and Consequences part of Courses
This course will combine lectures, field trips and laboratory exercises to explore the science, technology, and policy implications of sustainable and fossil energy options. The course will be taught in Wyoming and Idaho and take advantage of the numerous energy resources of the Rocky Mountain region.

Oil and Water (Geog 7) part of Courses
Catherine Gautier, University of California-Santa Barbara
Oil (energy) and water are two key strategic resources dominating the international scene and for which people have been and will continue to fight and go to war over. Energy and water play a major role in most of the main geopolitical issues of our time. As climate changes and population increases, these resources will be affected and their usage will in return affect climate. The course focuses on: energy and water resources availability, demand and usage, the two-way connection between these resources usage and Climate Change, and the solutions characteristics and possibilities and the consequent impact on energy and water policies. This class has students analyze global energy, water and climate data sets and ponder about some of the social, economic and geopolitical ramifications of these data. It brings together important ideas in geocience, technology and global policy.
