An upcoming event aimed at DMU staff…

Putting societal impact and transformative experiences at the heart of our teaching: Introducing the new QAA guidance on Education for Sustainable Development for Universities

Friday 23rd April, 11am to 12.30pm Microsoft Teams.

This interactive session is aimed particularly at module and programme leaders, subject group leaders and heads of school and introduces key ideas on how to implement Education for Sustainable Development (ESD), based upon new UK-wide guidance just launched by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA). The event will be chaired by Simon Bradbury, Dean of Arts Design and Humanities and features a guest talk by Dr Paul Warwick (University of Plymouth) who was part of a working group that developed the guidance.

The session will include an introduction to the key points of the guidance, case studies of ESD practice at DMU and the support available to adopt ESD at DMU, and discussion on how to best reflect the guidance in DMU’s existing processes for programme approval and (re)accreditation. The session will be designed so that key points are conveyed in the first hour (for anyone who cannot attend for the full 90 minutes).

The event is being organised by DMU’s Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) Project working with the Academic Quality team. To learn more about ESD at DMU, visit https://esdg.our.dmu.ac.uk
