Module Descriptor for lecturer professional development in Educating for Food Sustainability.
In response to SDG 4.7, which requires learners acquire knowledge and skills for sustainability, this module addresses a gap identified by the National Strategy on Education for Sustainable Development in the ‘preparedness of lecturers to facilitate the type of participatory learning’ associated with balancing social and economic well-being with Earth’s ability to replenish its natural resources.
For food-sector educators committed to embedding sustainability in their academic practice, this module aims to develop a community of practice, comprising faculty, students, industry and community that can support authentic and transformative living-lab experiences for a sustainable future of our food systems.
Deploying inquiry-based, evidence-based and action-learning approaches, this module focuses on addressing future-of-food issues within a holistic framework informed by the 4 Cs of culture, campus, curriculum and community as a means for transforming food-sector higher education.
