ESD Guidance cover

The event was 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 included 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 (1st hour) and three breakout discussions on how to best implement the guidance, focussing on either DMU’s strategic priorities; enhancing academic quality processes to support uptake; or developing future-oriented graduate competencies.

The event was 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
