Über dieses Buch

This book explores how higher education and sustainability interact in New Zealand, and argues that higher education at present may be contributing as much to unsustainability as it does to sustainability. It considers how education, and higher education in particular, works alongside a wide range of other life experiences to impact individuals’ attitudes and actions. In turn, it envisions a form of higher education that supports graduates to decide what their contribution to a sustainable future will be. This book addresses those aspects of higher education that are best suited to fostering the development of students’ abilities and dispositions to think deeply, critically and independently about the world, and how higher education will know if it is on the right track if it chooses this path.

Über den Autor

Kerry Shephard is Professor of Higher Education Development at the University of Otago’s Higher Education Development Centre. Kerry researches and teaches policy and practice in higher education with particular interests in sustainability, global citizenship and integrity. Kerry’s work has a particular focus on learning and teaching involving values, attitudes, dispositions and behaviours and argues that for higher education to make a serious contribution to sustainability we need to be interested not only in the knowledge and skills that we teach but also in what people choose to do with the knowledge and skill that they learn. Kerry’s work at Otago as educational researcher and academic developer is substantially informed by a previous academic career teaching and researching biology.
