GSELS-Designated Courses
Faculty who are participating in the GSELS Learning Community have designated sections of the courses they teach.

 

There are Two Designations for GSELS Courses:

1.       GSELS-focused courses will address all course objectives through the lens of GSELS criteria.

2.       GSELS-related courses will include a module addressing GSELS criteria.

 

GSELS-focused Courses

These courses, relatively few in number, will concentrate on all components of sustainability including its social, economic, and environmental dimensions, or examine an issue or topic using sustainability as a lens.  Faculty who teach a GSELS-focused course agree to promote and explain how to join the GSELS Learning Community. In the GSELS-focused course, students will be encouraged (but not required) to begin or contribute to their electronic portfolio and learn how to add course work and syllabi, as well as other accomplishments, to the portfolio. A GSELS-focused course may include a civic engagement or service-learning requirement, which may also be archived in the portfolio. 


GSELS-related Courses

Almost any existing course can, with some small additions, become a GSELS-related course.  These courses might incorporate GSELS principles as a distinct course component or module or they might concentrate on a single sustainability principle or issue. Faculty who teach a GSLES-related course will also explain and promote GSELS, how to join the GSELS Learning Community, encourage students to create an electronic portfolio and identify help for them to start it. In GSELS-related courses, students will be encouraged to add the syllabus and GSELS related coursework to their portfolio if they choose to create one.

 

Fieldwork and GSELS Contract Courses

All field experiences addressing sustainability or Earth Literacy offered as a college course may be approved by a GSELS certified faculty as qualifying as either GSELS-Focused or GSELS-Related (Example: Narrow Ridge Earth Literacy Field Experience)Students may also approach GSELS certified faculty and create a GSELS contract for a course that is not designated as GSELS-focused or GSELS-related which will then apply toward the GSELS designation.
