The Dynamic Curriculum: Shared Experiences of On-going Curricular Change in Higher Education
Editors: Jean Hughes and Eloise Tan
This edited compilation brings together and documents the different experiences of seven Irish higher education institutions in the area of curriculum reform and while the seven institutions are all Dublin based, they range from the country’s smallest higher education institution to its largest, thus a broad scope is represented.
The HEA provides four video interviews with experts on inclusion in the classroom. Rowena Arshad, Vicky Gunn, Ann-Marie Houghton and Bob Matthew respond to questions on how to build and sustain inclusivity in the classroom.
The widening participation agenda and equality legislation have contributed to an increasingly diverse student population in higher education. To reflect on this and explore strategies to build and improve on work in this area, the HEA held a summit meeting on Inclusive Learning and Teaching.
This reflective paper outlines the commitment and initiatives undertaken by the University of Liverpool as an outcome of this summit.
Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) is an interdisciplinary approach to learning that covers the integrated social, economic and environmental dimensions of the formal and informal curriculum. ESD is a pedagogical approach that can help staff assist graduates who wish to develop the skills, knowledge and experience to contribute to an environmentally and ethically responsible society, and pursue a career that reflects those values.
The HEA’s ESD toolkit complements the HEA’s Future Fit Framework, and provides links to useful resources and pedagogic research that can help higher education professionals to embed sustainable development perspectives and content into their institution and / or curricula.
