Introduces students to epistemologies, methods and pathways for climate adaptation inquiry and consulting services. Working with a faculty supervisor, students will develop a Practitioner Portfolio equivalent to 9 credits, reflecting each students’ individual competency profile and learning/professional goals. Portfolios may include existing relevant for-credit courses (e.g., ENVP Climate Solutions Field School) and not-for-credit courses and continuing professional development learning opportunities (e.g., courses designed as part of the Inspiring Climate Action project). The portfolio will support students deepening knowledge and skills in specific, identified CCA competency areas or employment sectors. All not-for-credit work will include academic assessment strategies and outputs (e.g., reflection papers, webinars, podcasts) that demonstrate the acquisition and integration of relevant competencies and learning outcomes. Pre-requisites and/or co-requisites – CALS601.
