Panel 2: The Digital/Environmental Intervention
Adapting to Changing Climates – Towards Teaching in Digital Environments
Danen Poley, Dalhousie University
While not all disciplines stand to benefit from the increasing move to digital teaching environments, the humanities certainly do. By making more texts available in digitized form, students are freed from having to travel to institutions of higher learning to study them. The author defends the opportunity this presents and argues the ethical exigency of embracing this move to the digital. digital environments have the opportunity to reach students in previously impossible ways (more).
Communicating Beyond Borders: The opportunities and challenges of digital communication to further the climate conversation
Ann Dale & Jaigris Hodson, Royal Roads University
Despite near unanimous accord over the imminent and irreversible effects of climate change, these issues are often phrased as a debate within the popular media. This talk will emphasize the role social media can play in this debate and how the media realm can be expanded in new spaces in future years (more).
Online Architectural Education as a Facilitator of a Sustainable Future
Samuel Fardoe, formerly of Curtin University, (speaking on his own behalf)
Online education tends to result in a smaller carbon footprint than equivalent education in person. The benefit of online education can go beyond this as well by providing better learning opportunities than would otherwise be possible. Using architecture as a case study, this paper argues that the greater sustainability of online educational practices helps to foster greater sustainable practices within its students(more).
Q & A
Have questions or comments? Feel free to take part in the Q&A!
Before posting, you must first register. Note that questions and comments can be intended for individual speakers, the entire panel, or anyone who has posted to the Q&A. Respond directly to a particular question/comment by way of the little “reply” below it. The vertical threadlike lines are there to make it easier to see which part of the discussion (i.e. “thread”) you are taking up. You can choose to be notified via email (see below) whenever a question, answer, or comment is posted to this particular Q&A. Because the email notification will contain the new comment in its entirety, you can both follow the discussion as it is unfolding, as well as decide whether you would like to step in at any point. You can choose to receive email notifications for as many of the conference Q&A sessions as you like, as well as stop notifications at any time. Because the Q&A sessions will close at the end of the conference, all email notifications will also end at this time. Although only registered conference participants can pose questions and make comments, Q&A sessions are visible to the public and will remain so after the conference has ended, as we hope that they will become cited resources.
