Towards Sustainable Practitioners

Posted on May 12, 2008


Nine months ago, Otago Polytechnic set a goal of “that every graduate may think and act as a “sustainable practitioner”.

This notion of sustainable practitioner very much puts what we are doing into the context of each discipline. We just had a review session where every head of department told us about progress towards this goal.

Here’s the slideshow based on detailed notes from each department (wiki).

The headline questions answered by each head of department are:

1. What does it mean to be a sustainable practitioner in your field? (and what progress are you making towards this)

2. How is this understanding being reflected in your programmes (Graduate profiles, learning outcomes etc)

3. Evidence of how this is making a difference in teaching and learning.
