Developing Graduate Attributes through the Sustainability Agenda and Problem-Based Learning
Friday 30th November 2012, 10am – 4pm
This free one day workshop focuses on the delivery of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) and graduate attributes using an interdisciplinary 'Hybrid' Problem-Based Learning (PBL) approach. The workshop forms part of a three-year project funded by the Higher Education Academy's National Teaching Fellowship Scheme entitled 'Hybrid problem-based learning: a scalable approach to sustainability education?'; a collaboration between Keele University, The University of Manchester and Staffordshire University.
This workshop is aimed at educators from any discipline, including PhD students and postdoctoral researchers with teaching responsibilities, who have interests in developing: 1) problem-based learning approaches, 2) education for sustainability, 3) graduate attributes and 4) the use of social media in teaching.

About the Higher Education Academy
The HEA is a national body for enhancing learning and teaching in higher education in the UK. We work with institutions across the HE system to help bring about change in learning and teaching to improve the outcomes for students. We do this by recognising and rewarding excellent teaching, bringing together people and resources to research and share best practice and by helping influence, shape and implement policy.
The HEA supports staff in higher education throughout their career from those who are new to teaching through to senior management. We offer services in 28 disciplines and throughout the UK, and have offices in England, Wales and Scotland. Through the partnership management team we work directly with institutions to understand individual circumstances and priorities and bring together resources to meet them.
Owned by Universities UK and Guild HE, the HEA is funded by the four national funding councils, institutional subscriptions and project income.
