Sustainability Education: Partnerships beyond the classroom for transformative Impacts
10am to 11.30am, hybrid format (Hugh Aston 2.06 or via this MS Teams link)
Listen to the recording of this session HERE.
The purpose of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) as put forward by the United Nations agency UNESCO is to transform the world and the lives of learners – making a real difference to global challenges such as poverty and inequalities, and empowering learners to do this.
How do we achieve this for our specific subject disciplines and taught courses? And how can partnership working with institutions beyond the university help us to do this? This panel discussion and Q&A session will explore this theme and will be of interest to staff and students interested in how their programme can have a transformative impact.
We will be joined by Jayashri Wyatt who is the chief of Education Outreach at the United Nations Department of Global Communications. DMU staff, including Dr Regina Frank (BAL), Dr Claire Lerpiniere (ADH), Dr Kutoma Wakunuma (CEM) will discuss a range of approaches used to engage or partner with external organisations to enhance their taught course provision and real-world impact of teaching and learning.
The session will be chaired by Dr Andrew Reeves, DMU’s Academic Lead for Education for Sustainable Development. For any enquiries, email firstname.lastname@example.org or view DMU’s resources to support students and staff with sustainability in taught courses here: https://esdg.our.dmu.ac.uk
