Integrating sustainable development goals into the classroom (F/SI)

May 1, 2024 11:30 - 12:30 Glen Rm 201-202View map

This informal, guided discussion will facilitate the exchange of ideas on how to integrate sustainable development goals into the classroom. Come and discover what steps the small UNEVOC Centre at Cégep de la Gaspésie et des Îles has taken to integrate the objectives into curricula and training in six steps:

  1. Reflecting on your approach to sustainable development;
  2. Defining objectives for teachers;
  3. Choosing content;
  4. Determining the time spent on sustainable development;
  5. Choosing participative teaching strategies;
  6. Developing skills for students.

We will also discuss the challenges, obstacles, possible solutions and levers to help integrate the SDGs into training. We will also share a tool to help you integrate the SDGs into training.

Stream: Advancing Teaching, Learning and Student Success

This stream will focus on how colleges and institutes orient themselves to ensure the success of their students, create inclusive campus spaces, promote both physical and mental health, and use new technologies to strengthen support services. Sessions will explore how innovative teaching and assessment methods can take learning beyond the typical classroom setting, including virtual and blended learning, traditional Indigenous ways of knowing, and work-integrated learning in the world of AI.
