Teaching and Learning for a Sustainable Future ESP344


Effective teaching and learning experiences are essential for students to develop the skills, knowledge, and attitudes to take action for a sustainable future. Therefore, this unit focuses on teaching and learning strategies relevant to sustainability education. It will enable students to develop a greater level of sustainability pedagogical content knowledge, and help in the development of teaching and learning resources relevant to sustainability issues, actions, and pedagogies. This unit also extends students capabilities through getting them to work collaboratively on an action learning project which seeks to address a specific sustainability issue in their local context.
