Formatted Abstract/Summary
In support of the urgent call for climate change mitigation and pursuing the vision of sustainable, circular economy, increasing number of universities have been developing courses to prepare students in meeting the growing demand for green and sustainability related jobs, which require systems perspective training in Industrial Ecology (IE) and Life Cycle Assessment (LCA). LCA analyses emissions and resource extractions from mining and processing of resources (cradle) to disposal of wastes and residuals (grave) and even back to cradle. This paper plans to contribute in developing an online-based information system which provides an interdisciplinary approach to teach IE and LCA for sustainable industrial development. Specifically, the aims of this e-learning project are: (1) To develop innovative teaching and learning materials in line with flipped classroom strategies and (2) To create a one-stop Blackboard in support of learning the principles and concepts of IE and LCA for Sustainable Production and Consumption. Though the developed materials are used first to support face-to-face learning, this is being leveraged to meet demand for distance/online LCA education in the near future.
