McGill reflects on inaugural year of sustainability fellowship program


McGill University recently developed and launched its Sustainability Education Fellows (SEF) program. Reflecting on the inaugural year of the program, the university describes how the program brought together a cohort of instructors and graduate students from across discipline to collaborate on the infusion of sustainability principles into course design and pedagogical approaches. Participants expressed the value of incorporating flexibility into the process to accommodate the various cohort members’ schedules. They also underscored the importance of viewing sustainability as a holistic concern rather than just an environmental one and the significance of involving students in course designs. With funding confirmed for the coming academic year, the initiative will continue into 2023-24.
