A Rounder Sense of Purpose (RSP) is a framework of 12 competencies for educators who wish to facilitate learning for sustainability. As the name suggests, RSP challenges us to embrace a wider awareness of the social, economic, environmental and emotional purposes of learning. RSP was developed through an award-winning research project involving over 1,000 educators, school leaders and student teachers across nine countries, coordinated by the School of Education and Humanities at the University of Gloucestershire. In this session, the project lead, Dr Paul Vare will share a little of the project story and highlight the three essential skill areas that we all need to enhance as we confront a shifting and uncertain future.
