The QAA and HEA Guidance for UK HEIs on Education for Sustainable Development

Longhurst, James

Abstract

This invited conference presentation explored the expectations of the 2014 QAA and HEA Guidance for UK HEIs on Education for Sustainable Development.

The Guidance was prepared by representatives of the UK higher education community with expertise in education and sustainable development. Importantly it included student representation from the NUS. It was facilitated via a collaboration between the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA) and the Higher Education Academy (HEA). The initial idea emerged from the work of the Higher Education Academy Education for Sustainable Development Advisory Group in 2012. The guidance provides an outcomes-based framework, and general guidance on approaches to teaching, learning and assessment, which those with responsibility for designing and delivering programmes of study may find helpful. The guidance is intended to be relevant to educators in all disciplines wishing to embed or include learning about sustainable development across their curricula. It also includes signposts to additional information and resources. The Guidance is intended to serve an enhancement function.
