By From page A8 | October 19, 2012

UC Davis alumnus Dr. Greg Möller, an award-winning filmmaker and professor of environmental chemistry and toxicology, will speak at his alma mater at noon Monday. He’ll talk about “Principles of Sustainability: A Case Study in Crowdsourcing a Cinematic Doculecture Course for a Global Classroom.”

Möller teaches at University of Idaho-Washington State University Joint School of Food Science, and is the co-creator of Principles of Sustainability, an open-access “cinematic doculecture” course. Produced in cooperation with more than 100 filmmakers, scholars and students, and normalized for students of any discipline or major background, the course is designed to inform and inspire students as they develop practical solutions to the challenges ahead.

“The 50-part course has received broad acclaim from students as ‘better than a live class,’ and ‘amazing,’ ” a news release said.

Möller’s talk is hosted by Andy Jones, academic associate director of academic technology services at UCD. For more information about events such as this one, visit The Wheel, the instructional technology blog of UCD, at http://wheel.ucdavis.edu.
