Informal communication has a key role in sustainability-oriented institutional change, says Green Academy Lead at Worcester

SML1-ImageMAIN-HEA-WorcesterInformal communication has a key role to play in driving sustainability-oriented institutional change, said Antonius Raghubansie (Green Academy Lead at the University of Worcester UW) at a workshop titled ‘The Worcester sustainability model now and the future: maintaining momentum from the green academy’ held at the university on 28 May 2014.

??????????????????????

Hosted as part of the Workshop and Seminar Series 2013/2014 of the Higher Education Academy (HEA), this event shared and reflected on the approaches used at Worcester to create Institutional change in response to the sustainability challenge, discussed examples across subject disciplines and showcased the project work of students.

 

The event started with a welcome by Dr Marie Stow???????????????????????ell (Director of Quality and Educational Development UW), who emphasised on the importance of impacting on students’ attitudes and values with a view of building a community of practice rather than merely teaching about sustainability.

 

Representing the HEA, Helen Howard outlined the HEA Green Academy programme and said that sustainability is important for universities to enhance the effectiveness of learning. She also highlighted that innovation, a key element in institutional sustainability programmes, would depend on the different contexts of respective institutions.

 

The day was structured around three main sessions:

  • Curriculum and Engagement (followed by Panel Questions and Answers)
  • Examples of Sustainability in the Curriculum from across UW (followed by Panel Q&A)
  • Participant workshop: Marginal Gains

 

Will Bowen-Jones (Head of Education Development Unit) kicked off the first session, on Curriculum and Engagement. Speaking on the Learning & Teaching Strategy and sustainability at Worcester, he highlighted that producing graduates who are ethically and environmentally responsible is central to the university’s strategic plan.

 

Katy Boom (Director of Environmental Sustainability UW), speaking on Campus and Community, revealed how the university uses both community projects and the campus as curricula and extra curricula sustainability opportunities for student learning. She focused on a number of flagship projects, including Energize Worcester funded by the NUS Students Green Fund. She also elaborated on the types of funding available for curriculum projects.

 

 

Peng Li (Project Manager Energize Worcester UW), presenting the student perspective, revealed that the majority of the students want their universities to become more sustainable.

 

Antonius Raghubansie (Green Academy Lead and Associate Head, Worcester Business School UW), speaking on the university’s distinctive Sustainability Elective for all disciplines, revealed the story behind its development and stressed on the key role that informal communication had played in the process, particularly in the initial stages. He also highlighted the distinctive elements of this elective, including the student-centred approach, the focus on personal responsibility, assessment through live projects and the virtual learning environment (VLE).

 

Wendy Corbett (Digital Publishing Creative Consultant and Visiting Lecturer in Design and Creative Digital Media), spoke on linking curriculum, campus, community and co-creating knowledge through creative digital technologies and online learning and teaching strategies. She presented the digital magazine hosted by the university, www.susthingsout.com, which comprises an external facing side (a publishing platform) and an internal learning side, which only students and staff can access. She observed that, in the absence of instructor competence and course content, no amount of technology would add value to learning.

 

Professor Stephen Martin (Visiting Professor), speaking on ‘Managing Complexity: Integrating the “Witness” Session,’ stressed on the importance of building bridges between the university and its wider community. He stated that universities should bring interdisciplinarity and complexity into the lecture rooms so that, when students leave as graduates, whey would be well prepared for the messy outer world.

 

During the lunch break, the participants visited student displays and engaged in discussions. Moreover, adding a touch of celebration to the event, Steve Egan (Deputy Chief Executive Officer of the Higher Education Funding Council for England HEFCE) presented the Energize Worcester Energy Saving Champion 2014 award to Anthony Ball.

 

The second session, on Examples of Sustainability in the Curriculum, consisted of the following:

  • Green Design | Andy Stevenson (Senior Lecturer, Graphic Design & Multimedia)
  • The Business Curriculum | Dr Mike Bagshaw (Senior Lecturer, Leadership)
  • Sports Science and Sport Studies Curriculum | Lerverne Barber (Associate Head, Institute of Sport and Exercise Science)
  • Masters in Sustainable Development Advocacy | Christianne Wakeham (Course Leader)

 

The third session was a participant workshop on Marginal Gains, led by Will Bowen-Jones. In this small group work, which used a sustainability café approach, the participants shared ideas, perspectives and experience, building on the content of the earlier presentations.

 

The workshop was followed by an optional tour of The Hive, UK’s first public/university library, which is a partnership between the University of Worcester and Worcestershire County Council. Leading the tour, Iain Paul (Design Manager), revealed how vision, leadership, collaboration and consultation with many stakeholders paved the way for this multiple award winning joint library and history centre, housed in an ‘Outstanding’ sustainable building.

HEA – Worcester workshop | The Worcester sustainability model now and the future: maintaining momentum from the green academy

SML-HEA-worcesterA workshop, titled ‘The Worcester sustainability model now and the future: maintaining momentum from the green academy,’ will be held at the University of Worcester (UW) on 28 May 2014.

 

Hosted as part of the Workshop and Seminar Series 2013/2014 of the Higher Education Academy (HEA), this event will:

  • Share and reflect on the approaches used at Worcester to create Institutional change in response to the sustainability challenge
  • Share and discuss examples across subject disciplines, covering both formal and informal curricula; and
  • Showcase the project work of students

 

As a prompt for discussion, the workshop will share some of the methods adopted by the university, particularly the development of a cross-institution multi-disciplinary Sustainability Elective Module and how courses have developed learning opportunities across the institution to embed learning about sustainability.

 

The event will start with a welcome by Dr Marie Stowell (Director of Quality and Educational Development UW) and an introduction by Helen Howard (The HEA).

 

The day is structured around three main sessions:

  • Curriculum and Engagement (followed by Panel Questions and Answers)
  • Examples of Sustainability in the Curriculum from across UW (followed by Panel Q&A)
  • Participant workshop: Marginal Gains

 

The event will end with an optional tour of The Hive, UK’s first public/university library.

 

The first session, on Curriculum and Engagement, will comprise the following presentations:

  • Learning & Teaching Strategy and Sustainability at Worcester | Will Bowen-Jones (Head of Education Development Unit)
  • Campus and Community: Using both community projects and the campus as curricula and extra curricula sustainability opportunities for student learning | Katy Boom (Director of Environmental Sustainability)
  • Student Perspective | Peng Li (MA student Project and Manager Energize Worcester, Student Green Fund project)
  • A distinctive Sustainability Elective for all Disciplines | Antonius Raghubansie (Green Academy Lead and Associate Head, Worcester Business School)
  • Linking Curriculum, Campus, Community: Co-creating Knowledge through Creative Digital Technologies and Online Learning and Teaching Strategies | Wendy Corbett (Digital Publishing Creative Consultant and Visiting Lecturer in Design and Creative Digital Media)
  • Managing Complexity: Integrating the “Witness” Session | Professor Stephen Martin (Visiting Professor)
  • Funding for Curriculum Projects | Katy Boom

 

The Lunch break will also include Student Displays/Discussions.

 

The second session, on Examples of Sustainability in the Curriculum, will consist of the following:

  • The Business Curriculum | Mike Bagshaw (Senior Lecturer, Leadership)
  • Sports Science and Sport Studies Curriculum | Lerverne Barber (Associate Head, Institute of Sport and Exercise Science)
  • Masters in Sustainable Development Advocacy | Christianne Wakeham (Course Leader)

 

The third session, the Participant workshop, led by Will Bowen-Jones, will be small group work, using a sustainability café approach with a focus on sharing experience.

 

The optional tour of The Hive, led by Iain Paul (Design Manager), will reveal how vision, leadership, collaboration and consultation with many stakeholders paved the way for The Hive, a multiple award winning joint library and history centre, housed in an ‘outstanding’ sustainable building.

Sustainability leadership is all around us, says Director SD at Canterbury Christ Church University

SML-HEA-CCCU-postevent‘There is leadership all around us for building a sustainable future,’ said Dr Peter Rands (Director of Sustainability Development, Canterbury Christ Church University CCCU) at a workshop on ‘Grassroots and green shoots: a green academy inspired ESF (education for sustainable futures) initiative’, held at Blake Hall College, London on 16 May 2014.

 

Hosted as part of the Workshop and Seminar Series 2013/2014 of the Higher Education Academy (HEA), the event mainly focused on the ‘Futures Initiative’ (FI), an innovative approach to sustainability and environmental responsibility developed at CCCU.

 

The day began with an introduction by a representative from the HEA, who emphasised on the importance of embedding Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) on all aspects of the higher education curriculum.

 

SML-CCCUSusWebsite

Dr Stephen Scoffham (Director FI) introduced the FI as a forward-looking initiative and a futures agenda that aims to build a wider culture of sustainability within the institution through a set of staff development programmes. He outlined what FI had involved, namely capacity building, supporting sustainability and reframing the curriculum. He also presented ‘Exploring Sustainability’ (http://www.canterbury.ac.uk/exploring-sustainability), the recently launched website to support the process of facilitated engagement.

 

Dr Peter Rands outlined CCCU’s wider sustainability endeavour. On the FI, he presented ‘Strawberries and cream: nurturing creativity’, the fruitful journey of a creative and pragmatic approach. Reflecting upon the FI’s journey so far, he said the university has planted fifty strawberry plants, referring to the 50 funded projects under this initiative.

 

Dr Nicola Kemp (CCCU) together with Dr Scoffham explored the FI process. Dr Karen Shepherdson (CCCU) talked on ‘Yurtworks… or pulling out the plug’, presenting an FI-funded project on Photography.

 

Small group activities, facilitated byDr Scoffham and Dr Adriana Consorte-McCrea (CCCU), gave the participants the opportunity to reflect on what had attracted them to the sustainability agenda in the first place as well as on their connection to nature, each other and themselves.

 

The workshop helped the delegates to reflect on how a bottom-up or grassroots approach to embedding sustainability might work within their own institutions.

Disciplines speak ‘Sustainability’ in different languages, says ESD academic lead at Bristol

Image-HEA-Bristol-PostEvnt

‘Different disciplines talk about sustainability in different languages,’ said Chris Willmore (Academic Lead, Education for Sustainable Development ESD at Bristol University) at a workshop on ‘Green academies: whole institution approaches to embedding education for sustainable development (ESD) in the curriculum’ held at the university on 12 May 2014.

 

Hosted as part of the Workshop and Seminar Series 2013/2014 of the Higher Education Academy (HEA), the workshop mainly focused on whole institutional approaches to ESD in the curriculum, especially on the role of students as agents of change. The Bristol Model of student intern driven curriculum change has been instrumental in the university’s developments, integrating students, academia and estates at the core of ESD.

 

The day began with a welcome from Peter D’Sena, representing the HEA. Highlighting the HEA’s ESD strategic aim, namely, to make a leading contribution to evidence-informed development of ESD policy and practice across the higher education sector, he briefly presented overview of the HEA Green Academy programme, which focuses on institutional change for sustainable development, helping universities to achieve sustainability in the curriculum.

 

The workshop comprised three main sessions:

  • Institutional approaches and disciplinary language
  • To map or not to map?
  • Students as partners and leaders of change

 

Each session included an introduction, leading to small group work, using a sustainability café approach.

 

Speaking on ‘Institutional Approaches and Disciplinary Language’, Chris Willmore revealed that, at her university, most courses already contained sustainability elements although the respective academics did not specifically referred to these as ‘sustainability’. She also emphasised that sustainability should be fun and should not be a guilt trip.

 

Sharing ‘Lessons from ISO14001 Accreditation’, Martin Wiles (Head of Sustainability, Bristol University) stated that ISO looks at processes around ESD, not at ESD itself, and recommended it for advancing ESD in an institution.

 

Aisling Tierney (ESD Coordinator, Bristol University) delivered two presentations. Firstly, on ‘Developing Mappings of Student Experience’ and then on ‘Linking Formal and Informal Approaches’, briefly outlining four key projects, namely Bristol PLuS, Student Hubs, Farmer’s Market and Student’s Union.

 

Several speakers from universities participating in the Green Academy programme contributed to the workshop:

  • Strawberries and cream: nurturing creativity | Dr Peter Rands, Canterbury Christ Church University
  • The role of PhD students in driving institutional ESD and sustainability research | Sophie Bessant, Keele University
  • Stepping stones to creating future learning skills for all students | Professor Tim O’Riordan and Jessica Bricknell, University of East Anglia (UEA)
  • Food for Thought: Nottingham Trent University (NTU) Using Students as co-creators of the curriculum | Dr Petra Molthan-Hill, Kelly Osborne, Kayleigh Smith, Seraphina Brown and Amy Scoins
  • Student Green Ambassadors | Dave Wheatley, Liverpool University

 

Mirroring the Bristol Model’s co-leadership element, the workshop was led by ESD ex-Student Interns Hannah Tweddell (University of Bristol Union) and Aisling Tierney.

The HEA-Keele workshop | Sustainability culture by a thousand cuts: an integrated whole institution approach to greening your academy

SML-HEA-KeeleA workshop, titled ‘Sustainability culture by a thousand cuts: an integrated whole institution approach to greening your academy,’ will take place at Keele University on 21 May 2014.

 

Hosted as part of the Workshop and Seminar Series 2013/2014 of the Higher Education Academy (HEA), the event will explore an innovative approach to embedding sustainability into the culture of a university, making use of multiple ‘entry points’ to integrate sustainability into all aspects of an institution’s operations. It will comprise three main sessions:

  • Integrating Campus, Curriculum, Community and the Student Experience
  • Leadership for Sustainability, the Formal Curriculum and the Role of the Students’ Union
  • Curriculum Case Studies

 

Following an introduction by an HEA representative, the workshop will ‘move out’ into its morning session, ‘Integrating Campus, Curriculum, Community and the Student Experience.’ This session will mainly explore sustainability education in practice and student sustainability projects across the campus as well as the interconnectedness of sustainability at the university, particularly focusing on how the campus acts as a catalyst for the sustainability agenda. The delegates will explore how the Keele campus is used for both informal and formal sustainability education for staff and students, taking a close look at a number of initiatives, including Keele Sustainability Hub, Keele walled garden allotments and the Student Eats project and The Sustainable Student House project. The session will be delivered by Dr Sharon George (Keele Sustainability Hub Manager), Emmanuel Blondel (Think: Green Student Society President), Dr Sarah Taylor (Lecturer in Ecology), Dr Zoe Robinson (Director of Education for Sustainability) and Sustainability Project Officers Bekki Laycock, Sophie Bessant, Philippa Calver and Giulia Mininni.

 

The second session ‘Leadership for Sustainability, the Formal Curriculum and the Role of the Students’ Union,’ in the afternoon, will cover three areas: (1) issues of leadership and management of the sustainability agenda, including the development and effectiveness of different leadership roles, and different models of staffing and resourcing, (2) strategies and opportunities that arise around the formal curriculum, including the adoption of different pedagogies, and different scale strategies from individual assessments to whole programme design, and (3) an exploration of the role of the Students’ Union in providing and coordinating volunteering opportunities and green events. The session will be delivered by Professor Pat Bailey (Pro-Vice Chancellor for Environment and Sustainability), Dr Zoe Robinson (Director of Education for Sustainability) and Students’ Union Representatives Jen Holland and Emma Hedges.

 

The final session, on Curriculum Case Studies, will explorea range of discipline-specific ESD case studies, including Sustainable Chemistry and Eco-psychology. It will be delivered by Dr John Hegarty (Senior Lecturer in Eco-psychology), Dr Katherine Haxton (Lecturer in Chemistry) and Chris Little (Curriculum Support and Development).

 

The workshop’s reflection on the approach adopted by Keele’s Green Academy team by creating a sustainability culture ‘by a thousand cuts’ will help delegates to develop novel ideas for embedding sustainability into existing activities at their respective institutions, considering the potential success and pitfalls of different opportunities within their institutional context.

 

The event is free of charge but a place must be reserved through online registration (see link below).

The HEA-CCCU workshop | Grass root and green shoots: a green academy inspired ESF initiative

SML-HEA-CCCUA workshop, titled ‘Grass root and green shoots: a green academy inspired ESF (education for sustainable futures) initiative,’ will take place at Blake Hall College, London on 16 May 2014.

 

Hosted as part of the Workshop and Seminar Series 2013/2014 of the Higher Education Academy (HEA), the event will mainly focus on the ‘Futures Initiative’ (FI), an innovative approach to sustainability and environmental responsibility developed at Canterbury Christ Church University (CCCU). Designed to facilitate and fund the university’s departments to review and embed sustainability within their formal, informal and campus curricula, the FI has adopted the term ‘education for sustainable futures’ (ESF) to reflect this approach.

 

The workshop will include some of the university-wide initiatives of the FI, the philosophy behind it and the challenges of its implementation, offering the delegates an opportunity to reflect on how a bottom-up or grass-roots approach to embedding sustainability might work within their own institutions.

 

Following an introduction by an HEA representative, the workshop will turn into its seven sessions:

  • An Introduction to the Futures Initiative (FI) | Dr Peter Rands (Director of Sustainability Development, CCCU) and Dr Stephen Scoffham (Director of the FI, CCCU)
  • Connecting to the process, a facilitated interactive group session on the process of bidding for resources
  • From form to transform | Dr Karen Shepherdson (CCCU) will closely look at a case study
  • The process of transformation | Dr Nicola Kemp (CCCU) will explore the experience of academic transformation
  • Widening participation: the supportive infrastructure | A look at some of the elements of the supportive infrastructure required to ensure lasting change
  • Website: Exploring Sustainability | Dr Stephen Scoffham (CCCU) will lead an interactive session, focusing on the development of a dedicated website to support the process of facilitated engagement
  • Reflections: exploring opportunities for implementation | A whole group activity to explore implications of this approach for other institutions

 

The event is free of charge but a place must be reserved through online registration (see link below).

The HEA-Bristol workshop | Green academies: whole institution approaches to embedding ESD in the curriculum

SML-HEA-Bristol

A workshop, titled ‘Green academies: whole institution approaches to embedding education for sustainable development (ESD) in the curriculum,’ will take place at Bristol University on 12 May 2014.

 

Hosted as part of the Workshop and Seminar Series 2013/2014 of the Higher Education Academy (HEA), the workshop will mainly focus on whole institutional approaches to ESD in the curriculum, especially on the role of students as agents of change. The Bristol Model of student intern driven curriculum change has been instrumental in institution’s developments, integrate students, academia and estates at the core of ESD.

 

The workshop will explore best practice in embedding ESD while identifying opportunities for developing student leadership in curriculum change and for developing synergies in terms of the flexible pedagogies. It will cover a range of topics, including students as partners, devolved and networked governance, institutional change, curriculum, extra-curricular learning and employability.

 

The day will begin with a welcome from Peter D’Sena (The HEA). Mirroring the Bristol Model’s co-leadership element, the workshop will be led by Hannah Tweddell and Aisling Tierney (ESD ex-Student Interns). Bristol University’s Martin Wiles (Head of Sustainability) and Chris Willmore (Director of Undergraduate Studies) will introduce sessions alongside students and speakers from participating universities, namely Canterbury Christchurch University, Keele University, University of East Anglia, Nottingham Trent University and Liverpool University.

 

The workshop is structured into three sessions:

  • Institutional approaches and disciplinary language
  • To map or not to map?
  • Students as partners and leaders of change

 

Each session, facilitated by a member of the Bristol ESD Team, will comprise a short introduction, leading to small group work, using a sustainability café approach. Lunch and networking will accommodate an open resources session, comprising a poster display and demonstrations of e-learning resources as well as a Tower Tour.

 

The event is free of charge but a place must be reserved through online registration (see link below).
