ECoP 8: Innovative pedagogical practices to embed sustainability in the accounting curriculum

Location: University of St Andrews Business School

The CSEAR Education Community of Practice (ECoP) will host an in-person half-day workshop on the theme of ‘Innovative pedagogical practices to embed sustainability in the accounting curriculum’ at the University of St Andrews on Monday, 26 August 2024. 

Workshop attendees will hear from leading educators and will have a chance to try different activities and share experiences from their own work. Attendees are encouraged to spend around 30mins preparing for the workshop to get the most out of the workshop.  Please note that you must register for this event separately from the main conference.  

Consider arriving a day early to join stimulating discussions, network, and shape CSEAR’s ECoP!

Overview of the workshop:

Learning with board games, with Fernanda Cerreira:

Fernanda (FGV EAESP, Brazil) will introduce us to a board game she developed in 2012 “Celsius: The 2 Degrees Challenge”. The game aims to develop players’ knowledge on climate change, illustrate the array of choices and decisions involved in climate change mitigation and adaptation (and their different impacts and outcomes), demonstrate corporate measures of mitigation and adaptation and the role of stakeholder collaboration and engagement throughout.

Learning with drama-based pedagogies, with Ann-Christine Frandsen and Nick Bailey:

Ann-Christine and Nick (both from University of Birmingham, UK) will introduce us to drama-based pedagogies.  They have been using improvised role play, with great success in Ann-Christine’s module on Professional Integrity and the Reflective Practitioner. With improvised role play, students are immersed in a context with a skeleton scenario and their have to improvise to navigate the challenge they face, embracing the role they were attributed in the situation.

All participants will have a change to experiment extensively with each pedagogy and will have room to reflect on their application in their course setting.

  • 11:00 Welcome
  • Experiment 1
  • 13:00 Lunch (included in the registration)
