Session Outline

The session will explore how one large multidisciplinary University Faculty is actively encouraging the development of responsible attitudes and behaviours in their students.
The Faculty, as a signatory to the UN Principles of Responsible Management Education (PRME) initiative, recognises the importance of all students being aware of issues around sustainability and the need to adopt responsible and ethical work practices in their future careers. Although the context for the session is Higher Education, the student focused approach taken could be equally applicable to Further Education. The session will outline
the approach adopted, including mini case studies and an interactive learning activity.
