What Are Students Learning about Sustainability?
Yousey-Elsener, Kimberly; Keith, Diana Richter; Ripkey, Staci Lynne
About Campus, v15 n5 p22-26 Nov-Dec 2010
Going green? For many, this phrase has a definitive ending, such as an "!" or a strong "." For the authors, the journey began with the questions: (1) What should students be "learning" about sustainability?; and (2) How do we know that they "are" learning? Their journey to understand the relationship between student learning and sustainability began when they teamed with the American College Personnel Association's (ACPA's) Task Force on Sustainability and examined its student learning outcomes for sustainability through the lens of assessment. In this article, the authors discuss their development of a model that responds to the two questions, using examples from their experiences at New York University, where all of them worked when they began writing this article.
