The workshop focuses on (further) educating instructors about the breadth of sustainability in terms of social, environmental and economical justice, while assisting them in building course goals and activities to increase students' sustainability literacies. Instructors leave the workshop with a foundation for redesigning their course/unit, and follow up with the CTLT sustainability specialist to complete it.
