Sustainable Development Goals SDG(s) in the Classroom


This short course is designed to help you work through the USask Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Teaching & Learning Workbook with a cohort or community of like-minded faculty and instructors. It is helpful if you are currently teaching or planning a course in which you hope to embed a sustainable development goal and would like to unpack and discuss ideas in a group setting. If you are looking for other ways to infuse principles of sustainability into the curriculum, please review the USask Guide for Teaching the Sustainable Development Goals available on our Educatus blog.

Course Outline:

Learning/Guiding Questions

  • Which Sustainable Development Goals SDG(s) does your course address?
  • Could you identify one or two specific goals and targets (indicators) your course helps work towards?
  • How might you convey this to your students?
  • What kind of alignment would they see?
  • How would it help their learning?

This course is designed to help you:

  • Identify the SDGs that are most pertinent to your course.
  • Develop learning outcomes that will help students work towards the goal(s).
  • Adapt methods of instruction for student engagement in sustainable development.

In future teaching and learning, how might we:

  • Modify curricula to bring in relevant SDGs?
