This book develops a "green pedagogy" and a mindset in Higher Education by using approaches based on innovative design thinking, arts-based practices, digital transformation, and entrepreneurship for sustainable development. New pedagogical methods and educational solutions are developed throughout the book to offer pedagogical support both to students and university/college level instructors.
The book leads students through an artful and experimental way of thinking and in doing so, will be much more creative and innovative and more responsible by allowing them to take ownership of the creation process.
An educational toolkit including human-centric design methods, digital tools, creative and arts-based practices, innovation-related skills and nascent and social entrepreneurship competencies is provided for higher education instructors. This method-kit will help instructors to support students in the process of creating new knowledge for addressing real-world problems and to enhance their societal involvement, foster entrepreneurial spirit, and reach opportunities for a sustainable future.
