|Despite over 30 years of campaigns, political struggle and educational programmes, environmental degradation has only increased and time is running out. Education has a key role in changing this trajectory. However, much of mainstream education for sustainable development (ESD) in universities fails to address the ideological faults in current sustainability thinking. So while much of ESD is necessary it is ultimately insufficient.After examining current debates in ESD this seminar will share how several innovative projects at the Penryn campus are leading the way in responding to this educational challenge.Everyone is welcome, no need to book!Please ensure you are on the lookout for the 2014-2015 seminar programme. Future sessions include :
Tuesday 18th November 13.00 – 14.00 Gihan Murasingha. Creativity in Science Teaching – recent research undertaken at Exeter
Wednesday 19th November 13.00 – 15.00 Carol Evans and Corony Edwards. Kick starting assessment: A 2 hour workshop introducing assessment strand, looking at NSS questions 8 and 9, examining principles of effective assessment feedback and examples of innovative assessment designs
