Workshop on innovative teaching and learning methods for sustainable development

Wednesday, December 9, 2015, University of Zürich
Quite a number of teaching and learning projects in the sd-universities programme test and use innovative methods like e.g. case studies, intervention, role plays, videos, simulation games or reversed classroom. Such methods have a great potential to improve education for sustainable development at the tertiary level. In order to allow lecturers to exchange experiences, expertise and ideas with each other and with further interested experts, we organise a workshop on innovative teaching and learning methods for sustainable development. This workshop is supported by the Sustainability Team at the University of Zürich.
