In CPPD students explore Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) in more depth and are introduced to the policy context and relevant texts. We also encourage them to develop their critical thinking and consider the bigger picture in relation to issues of concern, again using the 'Linkingthinking' (Sterling et al, 2005) materials.

The students explore a range of materials and resources to support them in developing creative ideas to introducing ESD within their own subject areas as, in this module, they are required to meet the outcome above, in which they develop a rationale for including ESD in their practice and plan a lesson and resources to demonstrate this.
