I’m just back from the first of six workshops I will be facilitating at universities around the country about how to embed sustainability in undergraduate civil engineering courses. The ICE and Royal Academy of Engineering commissioned Think Up to design and deliver these workshops to disseminate the findings of our sustainability teaching report.

Today’s session in Bristol was a great starting point, with representatives from the University of Bristol, University of West of England, University of Portsmouth and University of Wales Newport. Following each session I will write a short summary over on the Workshed blog. Over the course of six workshops I think we are going to build up a reasonably comprehensive picture of the way sustainability is being taught, and hopefully, we will be able to help good ideas travel further for everyone’s benefit.

If you are interested in signing up to one the workshops, then there are still some places remaining. Check out Think Up’s Eventbrite page for more information.

Note you can read notes from all of these workshops on the Expedition Workshed Blog by following this thread: http://workshedblog.wordpress.com/category/sustainability-workshops/
