Glen Sussman Professor of Political Science/ American Politics Teaching the Politics of Climate Change: Glen Sussman Professor of Political Science/ American Politics Teaching the Politics of Climate Change: Undergraduate and Graduate Courses

Undergraduate Course: Climate Politics in the United States The upper-level, undergraduate Climate Politics course Undergraduate Course: Climate Politics in the United States The upper-level, undergraduate Climate Politics course begins with an introduction to the issue and an examination of the science of climate change The course then focuses on how different institutions in the U. S. political system have responded to the issue and why. Next, employing the idea of “laboratories of democracy, ” we discuss the role of the 50 states and how they have responded to climate change and the extent to which they have joined together in collaborative efforts to address the issue Finally, we turn our attention to a case study of sea level rise focusing on the science of sea level rise and adaptation options

Graduate Seminar The Politics of Climate Change: Comparative Perspectives The seminar begins with a Graduate Seminar The Politics of Climate Change: Comparative Perspectives The seminar begins with a discussion of the science of climate change and the impact of climate change and a warming planet Next, the seminar takes a comparative perspective and assesses how the U. S. and selected countries have responded to climate change. Global politics is then our focus as we examine the problems challenging representatives at annual global climate change conferences Finally, we turn our attention to mitigation and adaptation strategies with a focus on sea level rise

Challenges for Students Can be Daunting Challenges for Students Can be Daunting

CHALLENGES WITH IDS PROGRAMS v. Conceptualizing focus v. Demonstrating demand v. Resources v. Discipline CHALLENGES WITH IDS PROGRAMS v. Conceptualizing focus v. Demonstrating demand v. Resources v. Discipline politics Scientists tend to resist interdisciplinary inquiries into their own territory. In many instances, such parochialism is founded on the fear that intrusion from other disciplines would compete unfairly for limited financial resources and thus diminish their own opportunity for research. -Hannes Alfvén, Swedish Astrophysicist

ODUs Efforts v. In the past – informal v. Recent discussions focused on an ODUs Efforts v. In the past – informal v. Recent discussions focused on an IDS Ph. D program that would have an interdisciplinary core and the opportunity to have concentrations developed around the core v. Possible core: v. Communication between disciplines v. Foundations of problem solving v. Interdisciplinary research methods v. Interdisciplinary problem solving

Learning Outcomes/Skills Learning Outcome Emergent Reasoning Employment Skills & Workplace Competencies Temporal Reasoning Use Learning Outcomes/Skills Learning Outcome Emergent Reasoning Employment Skills & Workplace Competencies Temporal Reasoning Use of time-series data Recognition, measurement and analysis of delays and feedbacks Data visualization: two and three dimensions Understanding basic probability, logic Discover and measure feedback processes Social Reasoning Ethnographic research Evidenced-based modeling Stakeholder communications Use of geospatial data Spatial Representation, measurement of spatial interdependencies Reasoning Scale Reasoning Identifying and interpreting relationships between agent-level and system-level data Logic of scalar inference Critical Thinking Use of multi-scalar data Team Reasoning Communication Collaboration Leadership Program Assessment Workflow Management Science communication and advocacy for the public

New & spin-off degree program proposals Program Proposal Development - Exploration Concept begins (program developers) Positive response received by department/school 1. Preliminary proposal written (description, rationale, course requirements) 2. Concept discussed with department/school • Is plan viable? 1. Is there support for further development 2. Are there adequate resources for implementation? Vice Provost evaluates concept Vice Provost recommends to Provost whether comprehensive program proposal is approved for development 1. Develops understanding 2. Determines its fit within the scope of the University’s mission, goals, & strategic plan 3. Defines its unique characteristics 4.
