Teaching the Role of Materials in Sustainable Development: Crossing Disciplines and Student Engagement 
October 4, 2016   12:00pm - 2:00pm
  Synced Audio / Video / Slides

Materials enable technologies and infrastructure that play a crucial role in worldwide development and that increasingly impact the earth’s climate, water, and resources. To identify pathways towards sustainable development, students and researchers must appreciate the multiple factors involved using a systems perspective. What is the balance sheet of impacts considering material sourcing, manufacturing, operation and end of life? What are the direct, indirect and unintended consequences? Understanding these issues requires insights across disciplines and effective means to engage participants in topics that are often outside their “comfort zone” of knowledge. This webinar presents effective means to teach these approaches, and should appeal to today’s materials scientists, engineers, and technology managers who seek to identify, articulate, and implement changes that improve sustainability.
