CONFERENCE: Quality Assurance, Enhancement and Education for Sustainable Development (ESD): Creating a Framework for Dialogue

A national conference, titled ‘Quality Assurance, Enhancement and Education for Sustainable Development (ESD): Creating a Framework for Dialogue,’ will be held on 2 July 2012 at Aston University, UK. Anthony McClaran, CEO of the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA), will provide the headline presentation at this event, which will involve keynote speakers, plenary discussions and interactive workshops.

The conference is informed by Leading Curriculum Change for Sustainability: Strategic Approaches to Quality Enhancement, a project funded by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE). This two-year project, scheduled to end in September 2012, is a result of the recognition of the need for strategic work to scale up efforts on ESD through the quality assurance and enhancement systems of higher education. Led by the University of Gloucestershire, the project operates through an institutional arm (a consortium of five universities comprising Gloucestershire, Aston, Brighton, Exeter and Oxford Brookes) and a sector arm (working with QAA, Higher Education Academy and an Expert Advisory Board chaired by QAA). The conference will bring together findings and insights emerging from the project.
