Monitoring and evaluating education for sustainable development in Higher Education workshop (academics, coordinators, support staff)

21st June 2023 , 2:00 pm 4:00 pm

Measuring, monitoring and evaluating Education for Sustainable Development is an important task. It helps us to show where we are at, the impact we’re having, and find out what and where we need to improve.

As part of a QAA funded Collaborative Enhancement project, the University of St Andrews; in partnership with EAUC Scotland, LfSS, sparqs, SOS UK, and University of Edinburgh, have developed a flexible 6-step framework that provides guidance on monitoring and evaluating ESD in higher education – including looking at mapping, quality, depth, and impacts. The outcomes also include a handbook and two workshops run by QAA. The workshops are free for QAA members and non-members to join and are open to all, with the two workshops having a slightly different target group.

This second workshop aims to:

  • increase awareness of the framework with those who will be directly coordinating or running the monitoring of sustainability in learning and teaching, e.g. curriculum leads or programme coordinators, as well as general sustainability officers/leads with a responsibility or interest in teaching.
  • facilitates the sharing of experiences in enabling ESD and discussion of how the Framework might be adapted at your own institution.

The event is open to anyone to attend. The project and outcomes are, however, currently university-focused and will likely be more relevant to higher education institutions.
