This guidance is intended to assist staff in UK higher education institutions seeking to incorporate education for sustainable development within the curricula. It has been produced by an expert group drawn from across the sector with the aim of supporting students from any discipline to acquire knowledge, understanding and skills relevant to sustainable development.
The guidance is intended to be of practical help to higher education providers working with students to foster their knowledge, understanding and skills in the area of sustainable development. The guidance recognises that there are many ways in which this may be achieved and is not prescriptive about delivery. Instead it offers an outcomes-based framework for use in curriculum design, and general guidance on approaches to teaching, learning and assessment. The guidance is intended to be relevant to educators in all disciplines wishing to embed or include learning about sustainable development within their curricula.
