Accelerating Climate Action and Climate Justice Through Open Education

March 5, 2024 @ 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm BST

Escalating climate disruptions and injustices demand that we keep developing and refining our forms of knowledge creation and sharing. Expanding learning opportunities through open educational resources and community-engaged open pedagogy practices can play an invaluable role in our collective response to the climate crisis and work toward a more resilient and equitable future. 

This moderated panel session highlights three inspiring open climate education projects in the U.S. that extend beyond conventional OERs, with modular adaptable resources and engaging methods to reach more learners in more ways. Panelists and their projects are:

  • Denise Linder (high school teacher, Grafton MA): Climate Solutions Scenarios with En-ROADS, a Subject to Climate lesson plan for high school teachers
  • Christopher Rabe (postdoctoral associate, MIT Environmental Solutions Initiative): the Climate Justice Instructional Toolkit, with resources to support teachers infusing climate justice into a wide range of undergraduate courses and disciplines
  • Edward Waisanen (platform and program manager, University of Michigan): Gala, a collaborative case study platform and community focused on sustainability

The session will be hosted and moderated by Curt Newton, director of MIT OpenCourseWare, and Richard Sebastian, teaching and learning coach at Achieving the Dream.

The session will begin with brief presentations by each panelist, followed by discussion among the panelists and moderators drawing out key learnings and points of resonance among the projects, and close with time for attendees’ open Q&A and discussion.
