UN SDG Open Pedagogy Fellowship information session – TRU Newsroom
TRU is part of an OE Global award-winning international fellowship program that pairs faculty from different institutions and disciplines to create open pedagogy-based assignments that address the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDG).
The conceptual framework for this fellowship is based on the UN SDG’s 17 goals that address a wide range of social issues such as poverty, inequality, education, climate change, and peace and justice which are designed to achieve and maintain social justice and a sustainable future.
Participating in this fellowship will provide you with opportunities to connect with other faculty to explore and develop assessments that will help your students become agents of change and have an impact on their communities.
For more information, check out the website <https://oewg.trubox.ca/unsdg-fellowship/>, come to one of three information sessions about the program, or contact Michelle Harrison ([email protected]) or Brenda Smith ([email protected]).
