The National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) is committed to supporting research to advance understanding of the competencies that are critical for socio-environmental (S-E) synthesis. SESYNC’s first education focused Theme, Learning to Integrate Across Natural and Social Sciences, called for research to advance our understanding of:
- How undergraduate and graduate students learn to integrate data, concepts, techniques, approaches, tools, perspectives, theories, etc. from natural and social sciences to understand environmental problems and inform solutions, and
- Pedagogies that support the development of this cognitive ability in a socio-environmental context at the undergraduate or graduate level.
