The Irish Journal of Academic Practice (IJAP)  has issued a Call for Papers for a Special Issue in 2022-2023 – Education for Sustainable Development: Pedagogical Innovations Empowering Transformation towards a Resilient and Regenerative Future

IJAP is published online once annually at Technological University Dublin. IJAP is a peer-reviewed journal that welcomes scholarly and practice-based articles, case studies, opinion & reflective pieces and reviews relating to learning, teaching, assessment and technology within higher education.

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) envision a future of social justice and economic prosperity within environmental limits, with education as an agent for transformation. Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) is premised on learning being repurposed from one with a primarily economic focus to one encompassing global citizenship, social responsibility and environmental stewardship. SDG 4.7 mandates higher education institutions to prepare graduates for this renewed purpose and is measured by the extent to which ESD is mainstreamed in higher education.

In line with these priorities, this call for papers (including original research articles, reviews, commentaries or reflections) for a special issue of the Irish Journal of Academic Practice is aimed at capturing pedagogical innovations, underpinning institutional strategy and capacity building across higher education that are contributing to SDG 4.7. IJAP is particularly interested in articles that share lessons learned from emergent practices in ESD as well as contrasting views on the future direction of academic scholarship and professional practice, across the disciplines, in this field.
