Sustainable Development Goals Toolkit
The University College Cork, has introduced the project of the Sustainable Development Goals Toolkit, which aims to foster the development of globally-minded and action-oriented citizens who are empowered to help create solutions for a sustainable future.
Having that idea in mind, the SDG Toolkit project has developed and curated resources to support staff in integrating sustainability into learning and teaching using the lens of the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Resources in the SDG Toolkit were informed by student and staff consultations.
The resulting SDG Toolkit emphasizes active learning pedagogies, including project-based learning, problem-based learning, and case studies.
The project offers mapping tools either for the professors to be able to map their module to the SDGs using the Interactive Mapping Tool, or mapping a course or study to the SDGs with the Course Mapping Tool but also identifying the direct linkages between research and SDG Targets/Indicators with the Research Mapping Tool. Student engagement is also important to this, with students being able to map their module to the SDGs using the Student Mapping Tool.
