UCU CPD Embedding Climate Education in the Curriculum Webinar- Wales, Tuesday 26 January 3:00pm

26 January 2021, 15:00 - 16:30
Online (Zoom)

Embedding Climate Education in the Curriculum is the second in a series of our webinars on the climate crisis, and how we can play our part in resisting it.

To take part in this webinar you do not need to have completed the Introduction to Sustainability session, though you might find that useful too.  This webinar 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 webinar 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 webinars 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.

Bookings are no longer allowed on this date.
