FW: Learning Innovation for Tomorrow event - June 2018


LIFT LAB – Learning Innovation for Tomorrow Event – Thursday 14th June, Cheltenham


Please find attached the 'save the date' flier for the annual showcase of our LIFT: Learning Innovation for Tomorrow programme which supports transformative learning for sustainability across the University of Gloucestershire.


We're delighted to be joined by Professor Stephen Sterling, internationally recognized expert in Education for Sustainability, as our headline contributor.


The LIFT LAB event has an experimental theme and aims to support the CPD of participants to integrate sustainability pedagogy into academic practice. It includes:


·         Reports from our 10 new LIFT pedagogical innovation projects for 2017-18 across 7 Academic Schools and with community partners.

·         Headline expert - Professor Stephen Sterling, National Teaching Fellow, advisor to UNESCO who led the Centre for Sustainable Futures at Plymouth University.

·         Practical workshops with input from specialists in Education for Sustainability and National Teaching Fellows at the University.

·         Featured subjects: Music, Events Management, Accounting & Business, Sociology, Performing Arts, Early Years Education, Sport, History, Criminology and Graphic Design.


FYI - the University's Festival of Learning is Wednesday 13th June and that evening is the inaugural lecture of Professor Arran Stibbe whose specialism is in ecolinguistics. Why not join us for both events!


The LIFT LAB is free to attend and includes our notoriously delicious and locally sourced sustainable lunch!


All welcome – please share with colleagues and networks who may be interested in this area of practice.
