Two Geography senior lecturers from the University, one of whom Dr Greg Spellman is from the School of Science and Technology, along with Dr Faith Tucker (School of Social Sciences) have developed a level 4 module called 'Learning for Sustainable Development'. This has involved a range of innovative methods.such as:
- UN style role-playing
- Producing a video documentary on a sustainability research project.
- Blogs to enable students to think about sustainability in their daily lives.
Spin-offs from this include a project working with a northamptonshire school on sustainability, fitting with the other projects involving sustainability and school's (e.g. Junkbots) that are on going within the School of Science and Technology.
