The Graduate School of the Environment (GSE) in the Faculty of Science (FoS) at Macquarie University has undertaken a project entitled “Climate Change Adaptation Skills for Professionals” in the Small Grants Program of the Australian Government Department of Climate Change. Its aim is to improve and increase learning about climate change adaptation in undergraduate and postgraduate environmental management and planning programs (among others) within the FoS. This involved the following activities: identification of professional capabilities needed for climate change adaptation from several sources; review of the planning programs and constituent units; consideration of course content for incorporation of recommended professional capabilities; and consideration of the implications for teaching and learning approaches. The results of this research will be presented highlighting new themes arising in teaching and learning in planning education for climate change adaptation.
