Around the world, an increasing number of university courses are offered these days on Life Cycle Assessment (LCA). While this is a positive development which needs to be further strengthened, these courses often differ substantially in terms of comprehensiveness, length, learning objectives and style. As a result, there is a huge variation between students’ LCA literacy and experience, resulting sometimes in a miss-match between employers’ expectations and students’ qualifications. It is thus not only important to enhance the overall availability of LCA courses at universities around the world, but also to develop clarity on competencies that are taught by these courses.
Objective of the 2ndworkshop on Life Cycle Education is to further develop a common understanding of learning objectives for LCA courses. The workshop builds on the results of the 1stworkshop organized in 2017, will provide a space for participants to exchange on teaching methods and programs and lay ground for the development of a scientific paper on Life Cycle Teaching.
The meeting will convene all Academic Partners of the FSLCI and focus on following up on the discussions started during the last two meetings on life cycle teaching, levels of competencies, teaching material etc. If you’re interested in participating at the workshop and join our Academic Partnership program, please get in touch with us: [email protected]
