Slides available here: http://www.slideshare.net/ShereeMartin/teaching-social-business-my-faculty-shoptalk

In November 2012 I initiated an interdisciplinary faculty conversation on using food and food system issues as the basis for interdisciplinary student learning. The conversation began with a 3-person faculty shop talk on how we each incorporated food and food-system issues into courses we were teaching that semester. A follow-up meeting in November led several faculty members to create a small learning community comprised of students who will be enrolled in a special sections of several gen ed courses in Spring 2014. My courses are not involved in the learning community, but I have been invited to participate in student learning activities related to food systems.
