Sustainability Literacy as a Learning Outcome/Graduate Attribute Feb 2013

Tags: sustainability | graduates | literacy


Emma Fieldhouse, University of Leicester, emailed the Members' network to ask,

"I’m sure by now many of you are familiar with one of P&P’s pilot questions for this year’s Green League. 

9 f) Sustainability literacy is formally included as a Learning Outcome or Graduate Attribute

But I was just wondering if anyone is familiar with any empirical research from employers stating that these are the attributes that they require in graduates?

Does anyone have anything because I’d like to use it to make a more convincing argument to include this in graduate attributes in particular?"

Jamie Agombar, NUS, sent a link to the HEA's 'Are Employers Seeking Sustainability Literate Graduates?' which you can download below.
