STEM2020 - Embedding the Sustainable Development Goals within first year Biosciences skills teaching

Students undertaking Biological Sciences-related degree programmes should develop an awareness of how their discipline contributes to the UN Sustainable Development Goals, in order to recognise the importance of scientific evidence in decision making. First year Bioscience students undertake an Academic and Professional Skills module, which provides space in the curriculum to consider the importance of implementing the global goals. This presentation will outline our approach to embedding SDGs within the curriculum in terms of the delivery of workshop and tutorial sessions, and how this links to assessment for which students complete an individual written report and an oral group presentation.
