LOCATION: Delta College Main Campus, University Center, MI

Workshop Description

If you teach Biology, Chemistry, Earth Science, Environmental Science, or Geology at a Michigan 2-year college,

We want you!

This workshop brings together faculty from environmental-related courses facing similar challenges at community colleges across Michigan. We will share practices and strategies that promote student success, and build a community of faculty centered on integrating fundamental science concepts and local and regional environmental issues in the Great Lakes region into our courses. While this workshop specifically targets 2-year college faculty, we welcome all involved in teaching introductory college-level science courses who incorporate or are interested in incorporating environmentally-relevant issues into their curriculum.

See the workshop overview for more detailed information.
