Learning and Teaching Standards for Environment and Sustainability

The Environment and Sustainability Learning and Teaching Academic Standards (LTAS) project is developing Threshold Learning Outcomes (TLOs) for the environment and sustainability field – documenting what students need to know and be able to do to upon graduation.

The project team has consultated with a wide range of stakeholders including tertiary educators and researchers, students, professional associations and employers to help develop the draft TLOs. After endorsement by ACCEDD, the Learning and Teaching Academic Standards (LTAS) Statement will be available here and on the OLT website (along with the Final Report).
