HE is ideally positioned to make a critical contribution to sustainable development through its core academic functions of research and teaching (HEFCE 2009). However, while sustainability research has accelerated in recent years, curriculum development to date has been limited in scope and impact, due to the complexities of sustainability when applied within the existing academic structures and processes of HE. The field of education for sustainable development (ESD) has the strategic aim of reorienting entire educational systems, which in HE means the challenging goal of achieving large-scale shifts of curriculum priorities, policy and practice. This Guide was developed through an investigation into aspects of this strategic impulse to bring about institution-wide changes to teaching and learning.
