CALL FOR CHAPTERS – Learner-centered Teaching Activities for Env. & Sust. Studies

This is a call for contributions to a peer-reviewed, edited volume entitled “Learner-centered Teaching Activities for Environmental and Sustainability Studies.” We are looking for contributions describing a favorite in-the-lecture-classroom teaching activity that is simple, easy-to-implement, engages students to become active learners, and that could be used by other instructors in environmental and sustainability studies courses (including a range of biology-centered ones).
Deadline: for complete consideration, contributions should be submitted by January 20, 2015; earlier submissions will be given higher priority.

Your activity could be included as a chapter in this book project that aims to compile a diverse set of engaging teaching activities to provide instructors with valuable ideas for how to transform their teaching, energize their classrooms, and improve student learning.
Note that, although they are learner-centered, traditional laboratory, field and extended project activities are outside the scope of this volume.
More details about the project, including appropriate topics, example activities, extended descriptions and submission details, are available here:
Each submission should be concise, only 2-3 pages, and follow a template provided on the website.
Submit any questions (including whether your activity might fit in the volume) to the editor, Loren Byrne,
