PRME Champions is a group of leading business schools with an ambitious commitment to collaborate to advance responsible management education. Here are some projects that IBS RANEPA was engaged in:
THE BLUEPRINT FOR SDG INTEGRATION
The main outcome of the previous 2018-2019 PRME Champions Cycle is the blueprint for SDG integration.
The SDG Blueprint for SDG Integration aims to provide a practical guide, concepts and frameworks to support business schools as they integrate the SDGs into their curricula, research and partnerships.
The resource starts with an overview of the purpose of the SDGs including their origins before looking more deeply at the main contributions that business schools can make to achieve the SDGs. A basic framework (the PRME SDG Compass) is presented that can be used by faculty leading SDG integration and some practical guidance, tools and examples to help business and management schools engage with the SDGs in a systematic way. While it acknowledges that no “one size fits all”, the resources in the book provide inspiration and guidance for schools to create their own SDG pathways.
CREATING DIGITAL LEARNING CONTENT ON SDGS
In the previous Champions cycle, Hanken School of Economics, ISAE, Audenica Business School and La Trobe Business School created digital learning material on SDGs. The videos can be found here. The learning material also served a groundwork for the MOOC on SDGs that was launched on Future Learn Platform in February 2020.
In the 2020-2021 Champions cycle a group of schools, including IBS RANEPA, decided to further build on the existing video/digital material with the aim of drawing in more geographical diversity and expertise on SDGs. It would also evaluate new online pedagogies for SDG Literacy. This project can be extremely relevant given the current COVID-19 pandemic, where learning has moved online. Apart from IBS RANEPA, the other schools participating in the project are INCAE Business School, Hanken School of Economics, Copenhagen Business School, IESEG School of Management and T A PAI Management Institute.
The project is now underway and more information will be available within the coming weeks.
