Dear colleagues,

We would like to bring to your attention a workshop by Professor Travis Rector (University of Alaska, Anchorage) to be held on Friday 28 April 2023.

As science educators, we have a great opportunity to help students and the public learn the science content and perspectives needed to understand and respond positively to the threat of climate change– whether it be in a formal or informal education setting. Many of the topics we teach (e.g., the sun, conservation of energy, geologic history of the planets, and physical scales) lay the foundation for understanding not only the causes of, but the solutions to, climate change.

The workshop will present strategies on how to have students and the public leave your class or outreach effort feeling informed, hopeful, and ready to address the problem of climate change.

This free workshop will be offered in-person at Deakin University Burwood, and live streamed via Zoom.

Please register for the event:

Attached is a flyer you can distribute within your networks.

Kind regards,
Saeed Salimpour and Michael Fitzgerald
