Times Higher: The Universities that Count
Teaching, Learning, Research and Knowledge Exchange Impact Area
Please visit the Times Higher website to see the recent article released on the Universities that Counts project. A huge congratulations goes out to all those mentioned in the article.
The Teaching, Learning, Research and Knowledge Exchange Impact Area has been part of the Universities that Count survey for two years now. The latest set of questions has been developed with the assistance of the UK’s leading academics in education for sustainable development. There are two strands to this Impact Area. The first- and the one we are focusing on here- is concerned with the curriculum (teaching and learning). The second is about academic activities focussing on sustainability outside the curriculum such as research, knowledge exchange and extracurricular sustainability-focussed activities.
We would like to take this opportunity to extend our congratulations to the following:
- Top five performers (in alphabetical order) are the University of Bradford for their Ecoversity work, University of Gloucestershire for their Education for Sustainable Development work along with their RCN Centre of Excellence (United Nations), University of Plymouth for their Centre for Sustainable Futures (CSF), University of St. Andrews for their St Andrews Sustainability Institute and finally the University of the West of England for a range of activity including having Education and Sustainable Development named the top priority in their University of the West of England's management strategy for 2008-12.
- And the five ‘Ones to Watch’ * are Bournemouth University, London School of Economics & Political Science, University of Edinburgh, University of Exeter and the University of Glamorgan.
