GSELS Learning Network: Transforming Paradigm
Offering 6 hours Professional Development Credit 
This workshop offers an overview of Earth Ethics Institute’s Global Sustainability and Earth Literacy Studies (GSELS) Learning Network.  Participants learn about development and operations of GSELS. GSELS faculty learn how to broaden their GSELS-designated courses to include additional GSELS course criteria, as well as  best practices of faculty learning communities. Participants explore Sustainable Education, a concept created by Stephen Sterling and described as “a change of educational culture, one which develops and embodies the theory and practice of sustainability in a way which is critically aware.  Contrast will be made of mechanistic versus ecological worldviews, and a multidisciplinary collaborative approach to education will be endorsed.
