Sustainability Teaching Toolkit

What is Sustainability? Heading link

Sustainability is a multifaceted and interdisciplinary effort that requires the engagement of all epistemologies and methodologies. In keeping with the University of Illinois Chicago’s commitment to providing Transformative Scholarship in sustainability teaching and learning, this toolkit is designed to provide a basic introduction to best practices in sustainability education as well as a wide range of approaches, programs, resources, and examples.

Please take some time to consider the tools available here and remember that there is already a robust community of sustainability educators at UIC who are available to support and encourage your journey in sustainability teaching.
