RMIT hosted two panel discussions at the DisruptED 2019 Learning & Teaching Conference that further explored employability skills and the future of learning and teaching in the context of the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Panel discussions topics are outlined below.
“Developing Employability Skills for Sustainable Development Goals”
This panel demonstrated the connections between employability skills and the SDGs, including the RMIT SDGs Placement in partnership with the Australian Association of Social Workers and RMIT’s Greenhouse and Sustainability Program (GSP).
“Ready for life and work? Using the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to disrupt teaching and learning at RMIT”
This panel generated discussion about how RMIT’s commitment to the SDGs impacts on teaching, learning and graduate outcomes. Case studies of RMIT courses embedding SDGs were presented to share “on the ground” experience.
RMIT SDGs Research Network brings together RMIT academics to share their ideas about engaging with the SDGs in their research, to discuss experiences and challenges, and to foster collaboration.
RMIT Global Experiences, in collaboration with Common Purpose, invites students to be part of the Global Student Community Dialogue 2021. A three-hour bite-sized forum, the Dialogue is an opportunity focused on international collaboration and cultural learning, centred around five of the SDGs. Applications close on 1st November 2021.
The EU Centre at RMIT is hosting an online seminar (27 October) to explore Australia's role in global climate negotiations and the global governance that underpins agreements like the Paris Accords and action to deliver on Goals 13 and 16 in the UN Global Agenda.
As part of our series of interviews looking at how RMIT is supporting the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, this month we have Professor Anne-Laure Mention talking about her involvement with the SDGs.
