Are you an educator interested in sustainability and global citizenship? The Sustainability Education RefWorks database contains a rich selection of resources which set the stage for sustainability education, providing examples and exploring teaching techniques. The Road to Global Citzenship: An Educator's Toolbook serves as a comprehensive resource for educators to critically explore different facets of global citizenship, with a particular focus on higher education.
This sustainability education resource database was created by UBC's Centre for Teaching, Learning and Technology (formerly the Centre for Teaching and Academic Growth) to assist educators with integrating and enhancing sustainability within their course, program or initiative. While this database is not exhaustive, it offers a diverse collection of resources including journal articles, books, websites, podcasts and short video clips.
The Sustainability Education RefWorks was originally created by Sarah Nyrose for the TAG 2009 Sustainability Education Intensive. If you would like to add a resource to this database, please email CTLT.
The toolbook explores a wide range of topics specific to curriculum, instruction and assessment, affording the reader the opportunity to develop a heuristic for how global citizenship can be applied inside and outside the classroom.
The CTLT Resource Room (located in the CTLT offices on the second floor of the I.K. Barber Learning Centre) is a great place for educators to connect and get support. Educators can browse a diverse selection of books, articles, and newsletters that address teaching, learning, facilitation, and professional development to enhance their teaching. Resources range from free access to electronic periodicals, a database searchable by author, descriptor, and publication, and an instructional skills workshop facilitator portal. The Resource Room Coordinator is available by appointment for consultation, and offers personalized bibliography and consultation upon request.
Teaching and Learning Resources Portal is a dynamic, community driven collection of teaching and learning resources on the UBC Wiki. Resources are arranged by topic and currently range from Adult Learning to Wikipedia. Members of the UBC teaching community are encouraged to log in to the UBC Wiki with their CWL and contribute to these materials.
