This project introduces Phenomenon Based Learning (PhBL) as a pedagogic vehicle to build on the Education for Sustainable Development Guidance published by Advance HE and QAA. Having drawn upon global sources of evidence, including Universities of the Future, this project enabled collaboration between Staffordshire University and Harper Adams University, two providers with very different approaches, to test Phenomenon Based Learning within subjects and beyond, across programme areas at different academic levels.
The toolkit supports the use of Phenomenon-based Learning as a pedagogic vehicle within Higher Education for the implementation of Sustainable Development Goals and equitably within the curriculum, via Phenomenon Based Learning modelling.
The toolkit is based on the artefacts generated from working with students from the two collaborating institutions over a series of six workshops. That format enabled students to engage in a micro-experience of phenomenon-based learning and provide critical reflection on its value as a pedagogic approach. The tools are informed by dialogue with international educators and scholarly outputs concerning the embedding of phenomenon-based learning.
