This work-in-progress paper addresses how to include sustainability in higher IT-education. We consider the challenge of modifying a course by adding sustainability content to underpin the existing learning outcomes in the course. Based on a case from a user-centred design course we show that existing sustainability frameworks can be used to connect learning tasks and outcomes to sustainability competences and aspects. We conclude that further work is needed on how a similar approach can be used to include sustainability in other courses in the IT-curricula.
