At DMU’s Teaching and Learning Conference on Wednesday 11th September 2019, a session showcased a new toolkit to help academics and students think through how sustainable development links to taught courses.

The session was presented by Andrew Reeves, Claire Lerpiniere, Ros Lishman and Kutoma Wakunuma, and included case studies from taught courses at DMU and a workshop on using the Ten Ingredients tool.

Ten Ingredients imageThe tool invites module/programme leaders or students to consider existing links to sustainable development, strengths and potential enhancements. It highlights both the content of a course, the competencies (such as systems thinking or collaborative working) that learning can develop and the opportunities to take real-world action on sustainable development.

The one-page Ten Ingredients tool can be downloaded here or on the Pilot Toolkits page of this site.

The slides used in the session are available here.
