International Jesuit Ecology Project
The International Jesuit Ecology Project (IJEP) is a three-year collaborative project between Loyola University Chicago faculty and scholars from Jesuit institutions around the world to create an online Living Textbook that addresses select environmental science challenges from an integrated scientific, moral, and spiritual perspective. This Living Textbookwill be a curricular resource in environmental science for teachers and students in Jesuit institutions of higher education and secondary schools worldwide.
Second IJEP Workshop
February 9-14, 2014
The Healing Earth Chicago Workshop II brings back together the founding members of IJEP who first gathered in October, 2012. At that time, initial chapter teams were formed and chapter outlines were developed. Since then, the complex work of collaborative writing has ensued to the point where it is now time to reassemble and refine the chapter drafts, and prepare for testing at a variety of international sites.
Among the goals of the Healing Earth Chicago Workshop II are to:
- review and edit the introduction and each chapter
to produce the final draft
- create cross-chapter references
- ensure that chapters are balanced across the board
in length, content depth, graphs, etc.
- highlight and assemble glossary terms
- create updated regional reports for each chapter
- review online presentation, usability, functions, etc.
Members from the Philippines, India, Indonesia, Brazil, Zambia, and Spain, as well as members from Milwaukee, Philadelphia,
Los Angeles will be joining the Loyola team members at LUREC February 9-14. News of the workshop was recently published
in the Ateneo de Davao University's news.
