Greening the Campus and Community

The campus and the community will be used as a laboratory for identifying, evaluating and assessing indicators of progress toward greater sustainability. Using qualitative and quantitative research methods, projects designed to test criteria for sustainability in a variety of settings, both on and off campus, will be developed. Using 'real life' problems and issues, physical and social data will be collected and analysed drawing on a variety of tools including: systems analysis, environmental audits, field surveys, questionnaires, interviews and statistical analysis. On the basis of these analyses, recommendations for improvements will be made.

I had Paul Kay in Fall 2006. The course had basically entirely group work. If you had a good group, things were fairly easy. The lectures were straight-forward; he explained things very well. The final was also straight-forward- no surprises. The readings were interesting and felt more like leisure reading which is nice- but still the readings were important for the final. Overall, a very interesting, low-stress class.
