The new environmental papal encyclical
Category Name : teaching
I am pleased to announce the availability of a new teaching resource for Laudato Si, the Pope's new Encyclical about climate change and humankind's obligations related to it.
Our module, which was written by Drs. David DeCosse and Brian Green, includes both Notes for Instructors and a Student Handout (a set of Laudato Si excerpts to be read by students in advance of your class). The Notes provide background on the Encyclical, specific questions for guided discussions, and key points for the instructor to make during those discussions.
This resource may be used either in a single 50 to 60 minute class period, or for less time over several days. It is suitable for several different types of courses, including business ethics, environmental studies, and religious studies.
David E. DeCosse is Campus Ethics director at the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics and teaches in the Santa Clara University Department of Religious Studies. A graduate of Harvard, DeCosse has a master's in journalism from Columbia, a master's in theology from Fordham, and a doctorate in theological ethics from Boston College-Weston Jesuit School of Theology.
Brian Patrick Green is assistant director of Campus Ethics and teaches in the Engineering School at Santa Clara University. His has masters and doctoral degrees in ethics and social theory from the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, and an undergraduate degree in genetics from the University of California, Davis.
Our module is provided at no cost (with written permission for class use) by the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics at Santa Clara University.
