Resource Description

Greening The Campus Through Research-To-Practice: A Case Study in Experiential Education(Resource ID: 56)

This learning material is a case study about a project based learning framework which could be studied and adapted to any University setting. Students directly interact with residents as well as stakeholders in order to establish behaviours and practices related to sustainability.

Students are divided into small groups to evaluate resident behaviours within a specific area (e.g. housing estate and how they dispose of waste in this housing estate). Students established partnerships with stakeholders (e.g. Department of Housing, waste disposal companies). Each group develops an action plan for their topic area. Prior to selecting a method for assessing the sustainable strategies in each area (e.g. housing estate), students referred to industry standards and identified successful instruments to promote sustainability. The students present a report of their findings and recommendations to the stakeholders involved on completion of the project.

Stakeholder interactions should be given clear tasks well in advance of meeting with the students. They should also be clearly informed of the aims of the project. It will also be necessary to establish a set of general ‘rules’ before approach residence in order to adhere to a professional code of conduct.
