In winter 2023 a pilot, interdisciplinary undergraduate course will be team-taught by a group of doctoral candidates from the University of Waterloo. It will focus on the Wicked Problem of Climate Change and will provide undergraduate students with a classroom experience where the academic content spans disciplinary boundaries.
The team will spend the fall 2022 term designing the course by working with each other and with mentors in the Beta Teaching Innovation Incubator (up to 10 hours a week, equivalent to a TAship).
If you are a PhD candidate researching in the area of climate change and would like to be considered for this initiative, we invite you to apply for this pilot! The intention is to select up to six doctoral student researchers, with diverse representation from across the faculties.
