MetadataShow full item record
This paper describes the development of a consistent sustainability education approach at the Bochum University of Applied Sciences by introducing sustainability content and practice into existing and new teaching approaches on six levels of education. Since 1999 the Problem Based Learning approach is used in the Mechatronic Teaching. The experiences gained there can be perfectly used to build up the sustainability education which is student centered, concentrating on the big transformation challenges our society is facing and searching for socio-technical solutions. Three examples of sustainability education practiced already at the Bochum University of Applied Sciences are discussed here together with their theoretical foundations.
