Master in Education: Learning, Pedagogy and Assessment - Máster en Educación: Aprendizaje, Pedagogía y Evaluación
This programme was originally developed in collaboration with World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), Oxfam and the EU. The programme draws on the expertise of environmental and development NGOs as well as the academic and educational communities. It deals with the theory and practice of Education for Sustainability (EFS) and enables you to explore and expand the role that EFS can play in educational, social, political and economic change. We have been recognised internationally for our contribution to the field of EFS. The existence of the programme at LSBU has been instrumental in the development ofLSBU as a United Nations Regional Centre of Expertise in Education for Sustainable Development.
