Bridging the Curriculum Content Gap for the SDGs with OER

Kean University
Open Educational Resources Conference
Thursday, March 17, 2022
Virtual | 2 pm

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are the world’s blueprint for achieving a better and more sustainable future for all, yet there is little to no integration of education for sustainable development (ESD) in mainstream higher education textbooks. This leaves many graduates to enter the workplace without the necessary knowledge, skills, and abilities to address today’s global challenges. Open Educational Resources (OER) provide a way to curate curriculum and design courses that fill the gap in competencies and ready students to help solve today’s social and environmental issues. This presentation will cover ESD in higher education by evaluating the current state, imagining a new way, innovating with OER, and implementing the changes.
