PIM: EAP for a more Sustainable World

3rd March 2023 @ 9:30am - 3:30pm

BALEAP PIM: How can EAP contribute to teaching and learning for a fairer, fitter future?

Pathways Programmes, Oxford Brookes University

 

Sustainable Development Goal 4.7 highlights the pivotal role of education in driving the urgent changes needed for a more just and sustainable future.

 

All EAP leaders and practitioners hold a unique position to sketch out the conceptual ground for sustainability education, as they set the scene for academic study in HE. Staples of EAP expertise such as scaffolded learning, reflective practice, communicative and collaborative learning, critical thinking skills and student-centred pedagogies are also key to teaching and learning for sustainability.

 

This BALEAP PIM aims to build on these EAP strengths and share complementary knowledge, resources and networking potential to enable educators from multiple disciplinary backgrounds to embed transformative sustainability education into any course, at any level.

 

Come and join some of the leading experts in Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) driving ‘an educational change agenda allowing us to look critically at how the world is and to envision how it might be, supporting learners to create and pursue visions of a better world’ (Advance HE QAA ESD Guidance, 2021: p.8).
