Presentation from 18th EAUC Annual Conference 2014

Stream: Partnership and Engagement
Competancy level: More advanced


How can you develop a training package to help deliver your sustainability goals? Comparing experiences from developing sustainability training LSE and UCL, we will discuss:

• Who are your audience? What do you want them to know about? What do they want?
• What training formats are best suited to your audience and context? What are the options?
• Iterative development of content with consultants and diverse groups of stakeholders
• Measuring the impact of training. Quantitative outcomes and attitude surveys.

Working in small groups, workshop attendees will map their own stakeholders, training requirements, and possible training approaches. Facilitated group discussions will allow attendees to share experiences and tips, think about how ideas could be adapted across different institutions and environments, and consider what approaches could work for them.
