Abstract Design graduates must be capable of responding meaningfully to an increasingly complex world. Student learning must provide a holistic and collaborative design practice that is both flexible and creative and authentically incorporates complexity. Within this context it is critical that sustainability, in its broadest definition, is embedded into the curriculum. This enables students to explore sustainability, grapple with issues concerning the interconnectedness of social, economic and environmental considerations in the local and global context, and to better understand the implications of their own actions in the real world. Appropriate teaching strategies are needed to support such learning.
