Local context (specific)
The difficulty to overcome is moving the student from its comfort zone of academic learning to that of the real world where other factors, many times non-scientific, need to be taken into account.
New aspects covering ethics, democratic values etc. need to be considered.
Local CPD goals
Designing methodology where SDGs can be introduced into the syllabus. Activities could range from invited lectures from experts in the field, student projects, adapting exam questions to resolve SDG related problems. Etc.
