Student Engagement with Learning for Sustainability - Dumfries and Galloway College

In line with continuing drive to progress leaning for sustainability in the Scottish college sector, Dumfries and Galloway College has developed a range of workbook materials that can be used by students and staff to embed learning for sustainability into their learning and teaching. The materials also try to incorporate core skills teaching, wherever possible, so that sustainability and core skills are taught together, to try to eliminate adding to what could already be considered an overcrowded curriculum.

There are a number of activities within the workbooks, and students are encouraged to take classroom projects and make them visible across the college campus, to further spread the sustainability message. By utilising these tools, it is hoped that sustainability can become embedded not only within Estates management in colleges, but also across the campus and curriculum, and positively impact upon the wider community.

Further information and the workbook materials are available on the Environmental Association for Universities and Colleges website.
