While the course was very short, it did allow for some great content relating to the Life Cycle of Products and the potential environment impact that all things may have. it provides very good extension activities.
LCA resources are difficult to find and when you do find them sometimes they are too technical for effective student engagement. This course was pitched a level that I could use some of the ideas straight away with my students and the resources are easily accessible.
The activities, videos, resources and strategies provide a wide variety of ideas for teachers to use in a range of specialisations.
Very useful course with some enlightening information presented on sustainability. Also some valuable resources gained to use to incorporate in lessons.
