The SUSTAIN 2SS3 course teaches you transferrable skills on how you can become a better advocate from a holistic approach.
What stood out in this course compared to other courses you have taken at McMaster?
What stood out about the course is the ability to work alongside a community partner. This gave you the opportunity to organize, research, or implement a community initiative or project.
What was your favourite topic taught in class; what lessons will you take with you?
A lesson that I took away from this course was the importance of evaluation, especially when it comes to event planning. It’s often we focus on the end result, but it’s equally as important to think of an evaluation plan, during the planning and implementation process, to be as successful as possible.
If you could give any advice to a student interested in taking or enrolled in preparation for SUSTAIN 3SS3, what would you say?
I would recommend enrolling in this class if you’re looking to better or improve your current advocacy skills. Although the class is within the Sustainability program, the skills and lessons that you learn are transferrable to any type of field of advocacy work that you are looking to pursue.
