The ability to address complex societal challenges is relevant to all higher education students, across all disciplines or professions. In this session, we will discuss how education for the SDGs can be incorporated into existing disciplinary courses – including into learning outcomes, teaching materials, and assessment tasks – and share examples from a range of disciplines taught by HEIs in our region.

One of the most important contributions HEIs can make to achieving the SDGs is to provide all students with the knowledge, skills and mindsets to address complex sustainable development challenges through whatever path they choose in life.
This ongoing series aims to provide a forum for the higher education community in the Aus/NZ/Pacific region to share, discuss and connect across all disciplines around good practices, challenges and opportunities for scaling up education for the SDGs in our region.
The series is jointly organised by SDSN AusNZPac, ACTS, and PRME AusNZ.
