TELI is intended to enhance faculty environmental literacy and
assist participants in incorporating environmental themes into existing
or new courses. The ultimate goal of the TELI program is to expose all
Tufts students to environmental issues, to enable them to effectively
engage with the issues that will shape their generation.
The theme for this year's TELI is, "Environmental Literacy in the 21st
Century: Reality, Perceptions & Education". We will explore some of
the science behind critical environmental issues facing society
(Reality), examine the role of media and politics in environmental
discourse (Perceptions), and evaluate approaches and utilize different
platforms that maximize engagement with students, colleagues and
community or organizational partners (Education). We will explore these
concepts through the lens of sustainable agriculture, diseases in the
21st century and environmental communication strategies.
