Developing Graduate Attributes through the Sustainability Agenda and Problem-Based Learning
The University of Gloucestershire
Friday 15th March 2013, 10am – 4 pm
This free one day workshop at The University of Gloucestershire focuses on the delivery of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) and graduate attributes using an interdisciplinary 'Hybrid' Problem-Based Learning (PBL) approach. This workshop is the outcome of a three-year project funded by the Higher Education Academy's National Teaching Fellowship Scheme entitled 'Hybrid problem-based learning: a scalable approach to sustainability education?'; a collaboration between Keele University, The University of Manchester and Staffordshire University. The Hybrid-PBL approach has been developed to enable the delivery of PBL-style teaching to larger cohort numbers in a less resource intensive way for the teaching and learning of sustainability education. This will be explored during the workshop along with links to other pressing agendas in Higher Education including Graduate Attributes, Employability, and Internationalisation amongst others.
This workshop is aimed at educators from any discipline, from university, to FE and college educators, to PhD students with teaching responsibilities, who have interests in developing: 1) problem-based learning approaches, 2) education for sustainability, 3) graduate attributes and 4) the use of social media in teaching.
