Developing Graduate Attributes through the Sustainability Agenda and Problem-Based Learning
This workshop series is being held at different Higher Education institutions around the UK during 2012/13, focusing on the delivery of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) and graduate attributes using an interdisciplinary ‘Hybrid’ Problem-Based Learning (PBL) approach. The workshops are 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, Manchester University and Staffordshire University.
Our 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 workshops along with links to other pressing agendas in Higher Education including Graduate Attributes, Employability, and Internationalisation amongst others. The workshops are 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.
