A dialogue-based curriculum for interdisciplinary environmental science:
Train students to respond effectively to different values and perspectives


Empower Your Students

Challenge your students through structured dialogue and guided reflection.


Appreciate Different Perspectives

Develop your skills as a professional scientist and environmental decision-maker.

"Paired with our readings and discussions on epistemology, it was a wonderful way to help each of our interdisciplinary students recognize their own perspectives that they bring to their research and their practice."

- John Kerr, Michigan State University
