New for Spring 2019

EDPS 501: Climate Change and its Intersections. Policy, Pedagogy, Practice. 

Climate change is the most all-inclusive challenge for humanity in the 21st century. It is particularly significant in the Canadian prairies yet is poorly understood. The objective of this course is to enhance understandings of the science, the politics, and the tensions that shape our collective ability to respond to demands for change, to consider the implications for educators and policy makers, as well as for different and diverse communities. 

The course will intersect climate science, environmental education, Indigenous analyses, sociological and political ecology approaches to provide insights into the nature and impacts of human-induced climatic change and the complexity of response. 

This first offering of the course in Spring 2019 will take the form of a blended-delivery seminar. Participants will have the opportunity to undertake guided research in specific aspects of climate change. The course will be of interest to educators, policy makers, human rights and social justice advocates and others with an interest in climate change, its impacts and the nature and possibility of response.

This course runs May 06-24, 2019.
