On 9 March, LTEU welcomed Dr Sarah Gretton and Alice Jackson from the University of Leicester to run a session entitled How to use UN 2030 Agenda Sustainability Development Goals to frame the Curriculum.
Slides and recordings from the session are now available.
In the session, Sarah and Alice gave an overview of how they embed SDGs across all curricula at Leicester, with 100% of their programmes having a module related to an SDG.
Participants at the session were given the opportunity to reflect on modules that they teach on and whether any of the UN SDGs map to them. Participants were also asked if students were aware of this mapping and whether it was captured in the learning outcomes of modules and programmes.
If you’re interested in Sustainability in the Curriculum then the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal targets are a good starting place.
In addition to SDGs, the presenters also linked to the following resources:
- QAA/Advance HE Education for Sustainable Development Guidance Document
- SDG Teach In resources
- Education for Sustainable Development Goals Learning Objectives Guide
This external speaker event builds on our Mini Conference on Sustainability held in December.
Our next external speaker event is on 19 April, 14:00-15:30, where James Wood from Bangor University will be running a session on Improving Feedback Literacy. You can book this session via the Course Booking page.
