ENVI1126 Challenges in SustainabilityDr. Judy RogersONLINE Elective
Challenges in Sustainability is made up of two fully on-line modules: a ‘core’ or theoretical module and a ‘practice’ module. The core module aims is to exposeyou to varying definitions and approaches to sustainability and to consider and debate the ways in which these definitions are informed by different politicaland philosophical orientations along with divergent understandings about the ‘environment’. The ‘core’ module becomes an area for conversing between thesevarious views.The core module prepares you to engage with the practice of ‘sustainability’: your own practice and ‘sustainability’ approaches in professional practice. Theaim is for you to apply knowledge learnt in the Core module to examine, critique and reflect on the practice of sustainability. It is only by exploring the as-sumptions, biases and limitations of existing approaches to practice that debates about sustainability can be moved forward to provide a foundation for a criti-cally informed, constructive and reflexive approach to practice.Assessment is made up of participation in on-line forums (30%) and a series of exercises that ask you to reflect on both the discussion forums and required read-ings.
