    This year’s SENCER Summer Institute will take advantage our continuing virtual environment and will combine synchronous and asynchronous content spread over three weeks. Institute programming will be held online from August 5 through August 22, 2021. Our theme for 2021 is Climate Justice. 

    We now know that a warming climate is our greatest global-civic challenge. It is the “existential” threat to the well-being of the planet and its inhabitants. Climate justice is the recognition that the adverse impacts of climate change are not equitable, and fall disproportionately on marginalized and underserved communities. Addressing climate change will require STEM knowledge, but its inequitable social, political, economic, and public health impacts, will demand much more, the kind of multidisciplinary and systemic inquiry reflected in the SENCER ideals. To support educators in modifying existing courses and creating new curricula focused on this critical problem, the SENCER Summer Institute is focusing on Climate Justice for its 2021 programs.

    • Workshops - Our workshops will feature teams of experienced SENCER experts working with groups of faculty in breakout rooms. Workshop participants who fulfill all requirements will receive a SENCER certificate of completion. Workshops will be held for three hours over two afternoons: 

      • SENCER 101 - for new attendees, we will introduce you to the basics of backward course design using SENCER civic engagement principles and outcomes. Participants will produce a draft syllabus for a SENCER course. (August 5-6)

      • SENCER 102 - for experienced SENCER instructors, this session will focus on improving  your existing SENCER course through the incorporation of inclusive syllabus design, high-impact practices, and learner centered assessment strategies. Revised and peer-reviewed courses will be ready for inclusion in a faculty teaching portfolio. (August 7-8)

      • Designing a Climate Justice SENCER interdisciplinary module - In this workshop participants will develop a climate justice focused module that could be inserted into an existing course in a range of disciplines and course levels. (August 21-22)

      • Aligning the General Education curriculum with SENCER ideals - this workshop will feature faculty connected to the new national “Improvement of General Education Life Sciences Courses” (IGELs) network. (August 14-15)

    • Panels - Panels will feature both external experts and those from within our SENCER community and will address the following themes following topics: 

      • Social Justice, Diversity, Inclusion: What the research shows, what actions are needed.

      • The STEM Learning Ecosystem: Informal and Life-long learning 

      • Indigenous Knowledge and STEM 

      • Misinformation and STEM - Communicating Science 

      • Lessons learned from the Pandemic - Access, Equity, and Justice

    • Poster and recorded presentations (with Q&A sessions with presenters) will also be scheduled.
