Ecohumanities and Service Learning: New Directions in Pedagogy
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences
Students in a humanities-oriented environmental studies capstone course are immersed in collaborative problem-solving. The primary learning experience is a service-learning project in which interdisciplinary teams of students create and implement programs that promote ecological literacy and sustainability in the broader community. The paper surveys the philosophical context for ecohumanities pedagogy, describes the key learning moments of the course, describes specific outcomes, and offers practical advice for implementation of this pedagogical model.
