Teaching Sustainability Experientially


  • Jerry Gosenpud


This paper focuses on teaching sustainability in the classroom. In it, I argue for a application of the experiential pedagogy to a kind of learning, for which experiential methods are not ordinarily used. But I believe most pedagogical scholars including those in ABSEL would not argue with my application. I also describe the course and examples of classroom activities, including cases, experiential exercises, and simulations. As I describe the course, I include some experiential activities I cannot use but experiential scholars interested in sustainability should consider.
