As the challenge to incorporate education for sustainable development (ESD) into higher education curricula grows ever more urgent, educational developers have a key role to play in empowering academics to become more effective ESD practitioners. In this chapter we discuss the extent to which such programmes could and should be modelled on active, enquiring and experiential pedagogies which are associated with best practice in education for sustainable development. We also examine the potential role for communities of practice to support professional development for ESD within institutions. In particular, we evaluate a professional development exercise at the University of Gloucestershire which experimented with such approaches and discuss its potential transferability.
