We welcome all staff in further and higher education with an interest in learning and teaching to our November 2023 Education for Sustainable Development Topic Support Network (ESD TSN)!

Topic: Nature & Climate confident – Integrating environmental sustainability into learning and teaching

Date and time: Tues, 14th November, 1.30-3pm

Why this topic and what to expect: While sustainability is all about the interconnections between the social, economic, and environmental, we have heard some of you telling us that specifically integrating complex environmental topics into your teaching is tricky. While there is some great stuff happening, especially around tangible issues such as waste and recycling, teaching about more abstract-feeling aspects like climate change or biodiversity can feel daunting when we don’t feel like we are experts in these fields. 

In this TSN, we want to explore ways you can build confidence to integrate these topics into your teaching – both through gaining knowledge as well as through using teaching methods that allow you to feel comfortable with not knowing everything. We’ll have speakers from university and college contexts talking about their work as well as facilitated discussions with your peers.

We will hear from:
  • Lisa McGovern, City of Glasgow College, on creative approaches to environmental issues           
  • Sarah Proctor & Scott Strachan, University of Strathclyde, on Climate Fresk & training up educators on climate issues
  • Barry Carmichael & Cristine Calder, Dundee & Angus College, on hedgehog friendly campus and its ripple effects

As always, the event is free for EAUC members. Unsure if you're a member or struggling to book? Get in touch with
