dc.description.abstractThis poster was presented at the University of Maryland Libraries 2023 Research and Innovative Practice Forum. It presents the work of an innovative cross-disciplinary experiential curriculum program of 20 courses offered in 7 departments across 5 academic units with an enrollment of nearly 500 students. Students were introduced to tribal members from the Piscataway Conoy Tribe, Choptico Band of Piscataway Conoy, and Nanticoke Indian Nation. Students used the "resilient Adaptive Climate Technology" (reACT) house, second place winner of the 2017 US Department of Energy Solar Decathlon, in order to provide design development in collaboration with tribal members for the adaptive reuse of the building as an educational laboratory. The curriculum development was funded by a generous grant from the UMD Provost through the 2023 Teaching & Learning Grant.
