How to make your teaching more sustainable - HEA briefing notes

Tags: teaching | HEA | bioscience | tutorial | fieldtrip | lecture

The Centre for Bioscience was awarded project funding by the Higher Education Academy (HEA) Education for Sustainable Development group to produce a series of short information sheets to support bioscience teaching staff in making their teaching practices more sustainable.

The sheets are intended as introductions to making bioscience teaching more sustainable, with hints and tips on practical steps to improving sustainability in lectures, practical sessions, tutorials, lectures, on fieldtrips and also your office or working area. The tips in the sheets are intended both for individuals and also as ideas that could be raised with, or passed on to, an estates department or a departmental or institutional environmental committee. The sheets also contain some ideas on introducing sustainability issues to students and into teaching.
