Teaching Environmental Psychology Critically: Laurie Hurston on Open Education

Teaching Environmental Psychology Critically:
Open Education with Laurie Hurson

All are invited to attend the Teaching Environmental Psychology Critically will be a focus on different ways to improve our teaching by using Open Educational Resources. Since we all, at some point, have to create a syllabus  and define readings and assignments, this meeting will be a great opportunity to think about those issues more broadly. We will have a workshop with our dearest Laurie Hurson who is an EP Candidate and also an Open Educational Technologist.
