This best practices session describes how instructors of Sustainability Science for Teachers, a hybrid course at Arizona State University, a major research-extensive university, used a collaborative wiki as a mechanism for fostering and encouraging collaboration in the teaching of a required course in sustainability for preservice teachers. Due to the hybrid nature of the course that was developed by an interdisciplinary team of content and pedagogical experts, it was necessary to establish a process by which materials could be accessed and shared. An important benefit to establishing the wiki was the ability to foster a professional learning community (PLC) in order to prepare instructors to teach sustainability literacy to future educators.
