Development of a student resource for problem-based learning in Ecological Economics informed by student experience and reflection
MetadataShow full item record
Ecological Economics is concerned with linking human behaviour to the environment via the economy. An Ecological Economist aims to solve real life problems such as traffic congestion, excessive emissions levels and unsustainable consumption levels. This fellowship was needed in order to fill the gap in resources available to students by giving them active role in the creation of a resource to aid problem based learning (PBL) in the field of Ecological Economics.
To develop a student resource to improve the learning and teaching experience for problem-based learning in Ecological Economics.
To use student experience and reflection to inform the development of problem based learning (PBL) in Ecological Economics; To enhance the student experience by encouraging deep rather than surface learning. Students will become more flexible, self-reliant and innovative in practice and develop a deeper understanding of how to achieve sustainability through tackling local ecological economic problems firsthand; To employ appropriate technology where possible to increase efficiency and enhance the teaching and learning experience (Technology Enhanced Learning); To develop an innovative, digitally available student resource to guide students through solving Ecological Economics problems using appropriate local case study themes; To embed aspects of the CETL Centre for Sustainable Futures Education for Sustainability agenda.
