  3. 3. SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT NOW, AN INTERNATIONAL GEO-POLITICAL PRIORITY … “ we'll roll back the specter of a warming planet” … … “ we say we can no longer consume the world's resources without regard to effect” ... … “ new green jobs to reduce dependece from oil” … … “ the economy of alternative energies” … … “ will harness the sun and the winds and the soil to fuel our cars and run our factories” … … a NEW GREEN DEAL to exit the economical and finacnial crises Barack Hussein Obama, new president of USA
  5. 5. 2005-2014: UNITED NATION DECADE ON EDUCATION FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT integrate the principles, values, and practices of sustainable development into all aspects of education and learning. it should be a “must” even for any design university to establish courses on design for sustainability
  6. 6. LeNS is a 3 years project (Dec/2007 - Dec/2010) funded by the European Commission (Asia Link Programme, EuropAid), involving 7 design schools in Europe and Asia
  7. 7. LeNS partners Tsinghua University, Academy of Arts & Design Beijing, China Politecnico di Milano INDACO Department, Italy (coord.) TUD Technology University Delft, the Netherlands TAIK University of Art and Design Helsinki, Finland IIT Delhi Indian Institute of Technology, New Delhi, India Srishti School of Art, Design and Technology, Bangalore, India King Mongkut Institute of Technology Ladkrabang, Bangkok, Thailand
  8. 8. <ul><li>promote a new generation of Asian and European designers capable of design for sustainability </li></ul><ul><li>(through a new generation of design educators ) </li></ul><ul><li>by creating a (new) articulated, adaptable and free to use disciplinary ground and set of learning resources on Design for Sustainability focused on Product-Service System Innovation </li></ul>LeNS’ ambition
  9. 9. MAIN OUTPUT: Open Learning E-Package on DfS a platform allowing (any potential) teacher to download free of charge, open source and copyleft learning resources (slideshows, texts, audio-videos, etc.) that could be modified/remixed and reused , i.e. adapted according to his/her specific didactic needs, institutional requirements and local context particularities
  10. 10. MAIN ACTIVITY: 8 ( transcultural ) pilot courses: . an asian teacher is guest by a EU teacher (+ vice versa) and they are observed by a third teacher . EU students design for asian context (+ vice versa)
  11. 11. … build through a transcultural learning process
  12. 12. the same LeNS web platform is free to download, open source and copyleft; i.e. A REPRODUCIBLE WEB PLATFORM ! I TALY N ETHERLANDS T HAILAND F INLAND C HINA I NDIA BRASIL
  13. 13. OLEP: INTRO TO MAIN FUNCTIONALITIES a quick tour 1. download/view learning resources by teacher/course/year 2. download/view learning resources by content/type
  14. 14. STORYBOARD 1 downloadview learning resources by teacher/course/year e.g. a student wants to view/download learning resources e.g. a teacher wants to set-up/up-date a course on DfS and wants to search for appropriate learning resources to download, and then modify, integrate and reuse in his/her course
  15. 15. 1. a student/teacher wants to have access to the didactic materials (learning resources) of available courses / teachers a) student/teacher clicks on “Learning resources”

  17. 17. 3. the student/teacher can view and download learning resources by title and by format type c) …and download the selected learning resources a) she/he can view the learning resources … b) …select learning resources she/he want to download…
  18. 18. STORYBOARD 2 downloadview learning resources by content / type e.g. a student wants to view/download a learning resource related to a specific topic e.g. a teacher wants to add a content to his/her own course on DfS
  19. 19. 1. a student/teacher wants to access to all learning resources, with a desired content e) … once selected the learning resources it is possible go to view/download c) …and search with cross filtering by content, years, formats, license, authors, and resource title a) she/he clicks on “search by content / type”… b) …selects a desired language/s and this will automatically select existing content, year, etc.
  20. 20. 2. the student/teacher views and downloads resources with desired learning content section under construction c) …and download the selected learning resources a) she/he can view a learning resource… b) …select the learning resources she/he wants to download
  21. 21. network / join the network > fill in the record register as a member of the LeNS network to view/download open learning resources on DfS and PSS or generate your own issue/local related LeNS platform

  34. 34. why should ( YOU ) students design a sustainable concept for a far away context? THIS (“FORCED”) LEARNING PROCESS ENABLES: A. students (designing for other campus/contexts) to discover a context different from their own by a strategic analysis and by the direct critics of local teachers over their design. B. teachers (receiving the concept designed for their own campus/contexts) to discover the other’s culture interpretation (and be surprised by unusual ideas). C. to build an articulated and shared visions of possible changes (catalogue of sustainable ideas).
  35. 35. LENS STUDENTS AWARD . the 5 BEST PROJECTS, of each LeNS pilot course (8 altogether), selected by the teachers, will participate to the lens student competition . the competition opens also for the external registrants DEADLINE the selected projects must be sent (using a given format) to [email_address] 3 weeks after the course has ended
