We live in a world full of fast paced changes and social and environmental challenges and crises. Students need to learn how to deal with this complexity and these challenges – and for this, knowledge alone is not enough: We also need to support students to develop skills and values/attitudes that allow them to cope with the world's complexity and challenges. These need to be developed by the students themselves and can't be transferred – so we need pedagogies (teaching methods and approaches) to foster this development.
To empower teaching staff to use innovative teaching methods, the EAUC-Scotland Conference in February 2023 featured a workshop on pedagogies that support the development of the eight Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) competencies proposed by, among others, QAA and UNESCO. The workshop featured videos and clips of innovative pedagogies in action - see more below and in the workshop slides.
Please see the slides for context and guidance of the video and audio clips.
As this is an important area of staff development, and many staff could not attend the session due to strikes, EAUC-Scotland have decided to publish the resources from the workshop here. If you have any questions or queries, please get in touch with Kathrin by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org – and join our next conference in 2024 to experience workshops like this live!

How can we support you and your institution to use and integrate innovative pedagogies that prepare your learners to cope with current and future challenges in a way that is beneficial for people and planet? Get in touch by emailing email@example.com.
A huge thank you to everyone who contributed to the pedagogy examples!
