Using the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals to Implement Problem-based and Inquiry Learning replay
Content presented by Leonie McIlvenny, Director, Studyvibe


The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals provide an excellent opportunity to implement problem-based learning in the classroom and an authentic context in which to address many of the outcomes from the Australian Curriculum. This presentation will provide background information to the goals, explore links to the Australian Curriculum and the UNESCO Transversal Competencies and identify the growing range of resources, programs and initiatives that support the achievement of the goals. It will also describe a challenge website that has been created to help teachers and students engage with the goals individually and as a class. Students achieve digital badges as they progress through the 10 challenges. Teacher librarians will be provided with strategies for how to support the implementation of the goals within the school library and the school.


At the completion of the webinar attendees will be able to:

  • Identify the UN Sustainable Development Goals
  • Identify and access a range of resources that support the development of the goals within a school context
  • Identify which outcomes from the Australian curriculum support the UN Sustainable Development Goals
  • Establish how the UN Sustainable Development goals can be used to implement problem-based and inquiry learning in the classroom.
