This resource explores the concept of learning and development and thinking about sustainable development. Students will be presented the following concepts: Osguthorpe ( Learning that grows) Kolb (Experiential learning)Illeris ( How we learn) and UNDP, (Human Development)
The resource engages students in activities that include the exploration of different learning methods such as: a Brain- Storming Activity, Poster Presentations, Learning style Survey/Testing, Discussions and Interactions with the Stakeholder.
It is suggested that Learning about Sustainable Development requires learning that links to our own identities and only through our actions can we push the agenda for sustainable development.
The resource can be used in classes about learning, learning and identity, as well as learning and sustainable development. It can also be used as induction class upon entering university, taking into consideration that education prepares students for work and for life with skills, competencies, values and attitudes to become productive and responsible citizens. In this sense, education does not respond only to short term market needs but also to the needs of societies in order to be sustainable. The resource is also related to the concept of learning how to learn, which is key to the skills that are needed by learners in order to respond to changes happening every day.
