Embedding climate education in the curriculum

Embedding Climate Education in the Curriculum: Thursday 01 February 2:00pm-3:30pm

This interactive workshop will look at detailed examples of how UCU members are incorporating climate education in their classroom practice in a way which we hope you will find exciting and empowering.

The full aims of the interactive workshop are to:

  1. understand why sustainability issues are so important to students and UCU members
  2. explore how sustainability issues have been incorporated into a range of learning programmes
  3. reflect on how to amend your own practice
  4. consider how you could use your experience to support other UCU members around sustainability issues.

How the workshops will work

The taught sessions will last for about 60 minutes, after which time it may be possible to take 15-20 minutes to discuss the issues raised with a UCU official, depending on availability. In that case the total time commitment will be less than an hour and a half.

You will need to find a quiet space, away from distractions (like telephone and email!), and you may prefer to use headphones for the session. I would also recommend that you check that you can use zoom before the session if you are unfamiliar with it.

I do need to stress that if you do say that you want to be involved I need you to treat that as a commitment as the webinar will be over-subscribed. 

You will then be sent a meeting number and password for the webinar using zoom, along with a couple of points to think about before the webinar. You will be able to join the session from about 10 minutes before the stated start time. I would also recommend that you do join 5 to 10 minutes early as you will need to be admitted to the session, and of course there can be technical problems.

Live transcription will be available. If you have any other additional requirements please let us know.
