A Message from Falecia Williams, President, West and Downtown Campuses
Congratulations to Librarian Nardia Cumberbatch, who recently had her “recipe” or lesson plan chapter published in the book, “The Sustainable Library’s Cookbook,” developed to support sustainability efforts in academic libraries.
Nardia’s chapter describes a problem-based learning activity that focuses on exploring nine United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. The lesson plan was used during the LSAMP Summer STEM Institute and focused on student teams researching one of the nine United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. These nine goals correlated with STEM (science, technology, learning and math) areas, and students were prompted to apply the research to the local Florida community.
