Our Position on Education for Circularity
The Circular Learning Objectives (CLO) List
The challenge of integrating circularity in the built environment studies has been two-fold: the first difficulty relates to circularity being a concept in-the-making and therefore elusive. How can one teach something that is continuously evolving and transforming? The second challenge is setting learning goals: what would be expected from students? What would be the objectives an education on circularity should pursue? In this regard, our research on the matter has taken both directions: on the one hand we needed to build on the input from the CBE Hub ongoing research and make sense of what we have learned so far and also identify our future research agenda. On the other hand, we needed to create a vision on where we thought this input could take us. In this video, Olga explains the building blocks of the Circular Learning Objectives (CLO) list. This list has been guiding our efforts to integrate circularity in our Faculty’s education. It is also the canvas onto which this present module has been built upon.
