EDUC 000/5236 - Education for Sustainable Development (3 cr.)



Description
The overall goal of this course is to help MA candidates achieve a deeper understanding of Education for Sustainable Development as a societal need for Egypt with an emphasis on STE2 AM education. We will examine the goals, strategies, and elements of Education for Sustainable Development as we consider “What is Education for Sustainability?” Our work will focus on using the “lens of sustainability”– considering the overlapping perspectives of the environment, the economy, equity and social justice- to frame learning  in formal and non-formal/ informal education settings and partnerships and collaboration between them. What knowledge, skills and dispositions do students need in order to successfully meet the challenges and opportunities that await them as agents of change in an ESD global context? What pedagogies could be utilized to present ESD issues in an interdisciplinary manner bringing together disciplines of science, technology, engineering, arts, humanities, and mathematics? Through exemplars and case studies, participants will be provided with opportunities to critically evaluate ESD policies and practices through an international lens focusing on theories and pedagogical practices. Furthermore, there will be analysis to different curricula design for sustainability components and to the challenges they encounter. This will help focus on how to develop interdisciplinary learning material that is the core essence of ESD and STEAM education and relevant to the community local needs in Egypt.
