APPLICATION DEADLINE: October 2, 2017

POSITION: Part-time Academic

DEPARTMENT/LOCATION: School for Resource and Environmental Studies

RATE OF PAY: According to the CUPE Agreement

WORK ASSIGNMENT: The Sessional Instructor will teach Law and Policy for Resource and Environmental Management (ENVI 5205) in the 2017/18 winter term. This is a required course for all Master of Resource and Environmental Management (MREM) students but is open to other graduate students. The calendar entry is as follows: “This course provides students with an overview of substantive and procedural aspects of Canadian law and policy related to natural resources and the environment. The course will involve lectures, guest speakers, seminar discussions and class participation. Strong emphasis is placed on the Canadian legislative and regulatory framework and the unique character of the regulated subject areas such as toxic substances, air and water quality, fisheries, forests, agriculture, minerals, parks and biodiversity. The role of the common law in preventing or redressing environmental degradation will also be addressed.” The organization of the course is flexible but for those students enrolled in the MREM programme, a substantial portion of the student’s final grade must be based on group work that spans this and two other courses (socio-political and biophysical dimensions of resource and environmental management) that are taken simultaneously.

There is a course syllabus in place for this course, although modifications may be made by the successful candidate. The successful candidate will also be able to call upon the regular course instructor for guidance and support in the organization and delivery.

The Sessional Instructor will be responsible for lectures, organization of guest speakers, discussions, office hour consultations, and grading. The winter course is scheduled for one 3-hour class per week to be held Thursdays 14:35-17:25 p.m.

We then focus on key topics in environmental economics, including among others: the sustainable economy; theory of market failure, public goods and externalities; environmentalist critiques of economic thinking; environmental and natural resource accounting; economic valuation of the environment; time in economic/environmental analysis. The final part of the class explores the theory and practice of a new discipline which bette! r integrates environmental and economic analysis; namely the field of ecological economics. The class is open to students in other parts of the University who are interested in economy and environment.

The course is scheduled for 3 hours per week to be held on Fridays, 1130-1430 hr, September through December 2014. In recent years, this course has attracted ~40 students drawn from various programs.
