[SUMA K4734] Earth Institute Practicum

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

Each week a different expert from the Earth Institute presents a lecture on their area of expertise. If the subjects that the presenter’s speak on interest you then you are in luck, if not then not. It seemed that all of the speakers spoke about subjects around the issue of climate change (and/or sustainability). Overall, the presenters are interesting and good presenters.

The technical level of the talks were, in general, reasonable for anyone who is generally familiar with sustainability / climate change issues. Some talks were fairly technical and others less so.

Workload:

Readings in preparation for each week’s speaker, four papers (for those registered for taking this class for three credits) and one five minute presentation which is based upon material from the fourth paper.
