ICA-Edu Colloquium 2017

Delivering graduates to meet the challenges of the sustainable development goals (SDGs): embedding the development of ethical and sustainable values in the curriculum

When?  13 & 14 June, 2017

Where? Faculty of Agriculture, University of Zagreb, Croatia

Registration: 31.05.2017, Registration is open here

Colloquium Focus
On September 25th 2015, the UN General Assembly adopted the Agenda for Sustainable Development - a set of goals to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all. The achievement of these goals depends in part on the education of our graduates, who will become
the leaders in addressing these challenges. We invite you to develop ideas for the enhancement or even the re-design of your teaching and your students learning. Our focus will be to consider how to embed ethical and sustainable values in the higher education curriculum in the life sciences. We invite you to share your views and experience and learn from others, whilst at the same time enjoying the increasingly popular capital Zagreb.

Colloquium Aims
The ICA-EDU Colloquium 2017 is centred on three themes:
· the challenge for life science universities in addressing the SDGs
· the teaching of ethics - core course and embedding throughout the curriculum
· the teaching of sustainable development – core course and embedding throughout the curriculum: environmental sustainability, economic sustainability and socio-political sustainability
Your experience in the integration of various methods in teaching will support our discussion. Of course if you and your students already have such experiences in embedding ethical and sustainable values in your courses it will be great to share that experience in the Colloquium

Target Audience
Life sciences academics, degree programme coordinators, students, academic administrators, and policy makers.
