The class of CIVE230 (Engineering and Sustainable Development) have been trailblazers in this remote learning environment in the Spring 2020 term. Learning about sustainability requires systems-thinking and a curiosity to explore. In the COVID-19 edition of the course, there were many chances to create new learning opportunities not only from the course content, but also from the world around us, the media and news, and from each other.
Students in the course were tasked with making a contribution to sustainability efforts. They have been hard at work throughout the term to share a sustainability idea that were compiled in an e-book “The Sustainability Contribution Project” which showcases their ideas that cover all course topics as they apply to cities around the world. This activity encouraged students to explore sustainable cities, infrastructure, solutions and technologies globally to generate an enriched learning experience and create an opportunity for peer-to-peer learning. Together, they co-created content.
This e-book serves as a contribution by the class for the class, and for the wider UW community. I encourage you to have a look through.
