Learning for Sustainability (LfS), or Education for Sustainable Development (ESD), is a wider agenda that has emerged in the UK and internationally at all levels of education. LfS is defined in multiple ways, for example as ‘a process of learning how to make decisions that consider the long-term future of the economy, ecology and equity of all communities’ (Martin et al. 2013: 1523). As such, how courses are taught is as important as what is taught.
Our work covers a range of areas within the field of philosophy of education, including theories of teaching and learning, moral education, theories of discipline, curriculum theory, virtue epistemology and education, theories of inclusion and social justice. Our members have backgrounds in diverse traditions of philosophy, including Analytic, Continental and American Pragmatism.
We are a group of researchers from across Moray House School of Education and Sport, and beyond, who engage in physical culture research in the context of education: schools, curricula, teacher learning and ITE. Together our research aims to enrich practice and improve the experiences, learning and lives of young people and their teachers.
The Research-led Teacher Education Network (RTEN) is an interdisciplinary network for dialogue and collaboration in research on teachers, teaching and teacher education, knowledge Exchange between academic and non-academic partners, research-led development of teacher education, drawing upon the wide range of research at the University of Edinburgh and internationally.
We are a diverse group of educators, researchers and activists working across Moray House School of Education and Sport's four institutes, who have come together to understand and address Sustainability in Education. We encourage new faculty and PhD students to join us.
