Learning Design and Education for Sustainable Development BOOTCAMP

| | | | |

The Learning Design and Education for Sustainable Development (EDS) Bootcamp offers a highly flexible and enriching 8-week program, designed to meet the needs of academics, learning designers, educational developers and students. This course not only focuses on supporting university teams in creating curricula for online teaching and blended learning modalities, but is also dedicated to mentoring and supporting selected teams in the design and implementation of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) in their study plans. All of this is done under the robust framework provided by CoDesignS and the EDS Toolkit. Participating teams will develop innovative curricular components that will significantly contribute to the successful integration of ESD into higher education practices, and will do so in a module of their choice, thus personalizing their educational approach.

The Bootcamp goes beyond conventional curricular design by offering an experience in integrating Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) into study plans. This involves identifying opportunities to include topics related to sustainability, environmental and social ethics in academic programs.

The course provides a unique opportunity to improve curriculum design skills, learn about the integration of Education for Sustainable Development and collaborate with other professionals and students interested in these fields. It is a valuable investment for those who wish to contribute to the advancement of sustainable and effective education.
