Event Details

The FSLCI’s Working Group on LCA in Higher Education published its first paper on “Teaching life cycle assessment in higher education” in the International Journal of LCA earlier this year. Now the working group is organizing this open-access webinar to present the paper and engage with the Life Cycle Community on next steps. 

The paper is an outcome of multiple working group workshops and frames five LCA learning and competency levels that differ in terms of study program integration, workload, cognitive domain categories, learning outcomes, and envisioned professional skills. It furthermore provides insights into teaching approaches and content, including software use, related to these levels.

The paper will be presented by the Working Groups’s co-chairs Prof. Tobias Viere and Prof. Guido Sonnemann together with other working group members. In contrast to other FSLCI webinars, this webinar will be open to anyone interested in participating. Simply create a free account if you don’t have one yet and rsvp here to join us on April 27!
