Abstract

This paper describes Sustainability Science for Teachers, a hybrid course in development at a major research-extensive university in the desert southwest that integrates the use of technology to teach related concepts in a meaningful way. Part of a programmatic education reform aimed toward improving science content knowledge among preservice elementary teachers, the goal of the course is for future educators to gain knowledge, values, and skills to address the environmental and social challenges we face in coming decades. Informal interviews and surveys were deployed to identify and evaluate the hybrid format from both the student and instructor perspective. The research findings describe the advantages and disadvantages of the hybrid format. In general, favorable remarks are elicited from both the instructors and students citing structural and pedagogical advantages with the hybrid format.
