Environmental educators professional learning session

Sustainability is a cross-curriculum priority for the Australian curriculum. 

There are many opportunities to integrate sustainability into the curriculum through:

  • learning content: developing students knowledge, understanding and skills about sustainability issues
  • pedagogy: student centred and action based learning, learning outside in nature, systems and critical thinking. 

Undertaking a curriculum review or audit is a useful tool to assess where sustainability is being addressed within your school curriculum.

The Sustainability Action Process (SAP)  is a preferred pedagogical approach for teaching sustainability. It is a student-centred, project based methodology guiding students from investigating a sustainability issue, to developing and implementing a solution.
