Preparing our Students for a Sustainable Future: Launch of the SDG Toolkit
10th November 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
This event sees the launch of UCC’s SDG Toolkit and includes inputs from UCC President, Professor John O’Halloran, UCC staff and students as they share their reflections on the need for and experience of integrating the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the curriculum.
The SDG toolkit is a web-based resource developed to assist teaching staff to integrate the SDGs into teaching and learning. It includes teaching and learning strategies, videos, databases, case studies and interactive tools. The toolkit also includes mapping tools to help staff realise connections between specific SDGs and their modules, programmes or research while offering self-reflective exercises to guide further SDG integration.
The overarching goal of this SDG Toolkit is to guide students to develop a deep transformative understanding of disciplinary knowledge and values aligned with sustainable development, so they are enabled with a mindset to become innovative agents of change and to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing world in both their professional and personal lives.
