    1. 1. carlo vezzoli Head of LeNS EU Asia-link project Design and system Innovation for Sustainability (DIS) Politecnico di Milano - INDACO dpt. - Faculty of Design Learning Network on Sustainability course Product-Service System Design for Sustainability subject 1. Curricula development in design for sustainability learning resource 1.1 LENS, THE LEARNING NETWORK ON SUSTAINABILITY
    2. 2. <ul><li>CONTENTS </li></ul><ul><li>. LeNS scope and ambition </li></ul><ul><li>. LeSN areas on concern of DxS focused on PSS </li></ul><ul><li>. main output: OLEP, the Open Learning E-Package </li></ul><ul><li>. main activities: transcultural learning pilot courses </li></ul><ul><li>. a “replicable” open source and copyleft web platform </li></ul>
    3. 3. 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
    4. 4. 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
    5. 5. <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 an open source, copyleft and replicable learning platform , with an articulated set of didactic materials ( learning resources ), being a disciplinary ground on Design for Sustainability focused on Product-Service System innovation, free to use and adaptable by (any) teacher </li></ul>LENS’ AMBITION
    6. 6. LeSN areas on concern of DxS focused on PSS
    7. 7. a platform allowing interested teachers to download open source and copyleft learning resources (slideshows, texts, audio-videos, etc.) that could be modified/remixed and reused , i.e. adapted according to each teacher specific didactic needs, institutional requirements and local context particularities MAIN OUTPUT: Open Learning E-Package on DfS
    8. 8. MAIN ACTIVITY: 8 transcultural learning pilot courses: . a EU teacher is guest by an Asian teacher (+ vice versa) and they are observed by a third teacher . Asian students design for EU context and are criticised by EU teacher (+ vice versa) . All lectures are recorded: videos, slides, ... are uploaded (OLEP)
    10. 10. OLEP, Open Learning E-Package a quick tour to main functionalities 1. downloading/viewing learning resources by teacher/course/year 2. downloading/viewing learning resources by content/type 3. uploading a course (learning resources collection)
    11. 11. STORYBOARD 1 downloadview learning resources by teacher/course/year e.g. a STUDENT wants to VIEW learning resources related to the course she/he is attending 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 modify/remix and reuse in her/his course
    12. 12. 1. a student/teacher wants to have access to the didactic materials (learning resources) of available courses / teachers a) the student/teacher clicks on “Learning resources” …
    13. 13. 2. the student/teacher wants have access to all learning resources of a particular teacher/course/year c) … click on the desired teacher/course/ year to access the related learning resources collection … a) …and selects the “teacher” section … b) …selects a desired language/s filtering the available learning resources…
    14. 14. 3. the student/teacher can view and download learning resources by title and by format type d) … FINALLY THE TEACHER CAN MODIFY/REMIX AND THEN REUSE IN HER/HIS COURSE c) …and click on download … a) she/he can view the learning resources … b) …select learning resources she/he want to download…
    15. 15. STORYBOARD 2 downloadview learning resources by content / type e.g. a STUDENT wants to VIEW a learning resource related to a specific topic even related to other courses she/he is not attending e.g. a TEACHER wants to add a content to her/his own course on DfS, and wants to DOWNLOAD specific learning resources, and then modify/remix and then reuse in her/his course
    16. 16. 1. the student/teacher wants to access all learning resources, with a desired content e) … once selected the learning resources it is possible go to view/download … c) …then 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 filtering available learning resources...
    17. 17. section under construction 2. the student/teacher views and downloads resources with desired learning content d) … FINALLY THE TEACHER CAN MODIFY/REMIX AND THEN REUSE IN HER/HIS COURSE c) …and click to download the selected learning resources a) she/he can view a learning resource… b) …select the learning resources she/he wants to download
    18. 18. STORYBOARD 3 uploading a course (learning resources collection) e.g. a TEACHER wishes to upload her/his own course, a learning resource collection
    19. 19. 1. A teacher wants to upload his own course a) she/he clicks on upload/modify b) …clicks on “Upload a new course” ... e) …and click on “Go to upload/modify”
    20. 20. 2. the teacher starts the setting-up of the course structure d) … FINALLY THE TEACHER CAN BROWSE FOR UP-LOQDING c) ... may inserts a “learning subject” the learning resource belong to a) …inserts the “learning resource title” of the didactic material she/he wants to upload ... b) …inserts the set of “contents” dealt in the learning resource d) … clicks on “Upload”
    21. 21. <ul><li>SO FAR AVAILABLE LECTURES FROM: </li></ul><ul><li>1. pilot course at Technical University of Delft </li></ul><ul><li>2. pilot course at Politecnico di Milano </li></ul><ul><li>with video and slideshows of lectures from more than 15 key teachers from Asia, Europe, America, Australia, Africa </li></ul><ul><li>OTHER CONTRIBUTIONS ARE EXPECTED FROM OTHER 6 PILOT COURSES (IIT BEING THE NEXT) </li></ul>
    23. 23. <ul><li>opportunities: </li></ul><ul><li>. facilitate knowledge dissemination </li></ul><ul><li>. facilitate continuous and rapid knowledge upgrade </li></ul><ul><li>. facilitate collaboration between researchers/teachers </li></ul><ul><li>. facilitate knowledge adaptation in relation to different contexts </li></ul><ul><li>... </li></ul><ul><li>threats: </li></ul><ul><li>. scientific un-reliability of contents (review is time consuming) </li></ul><ul><li>. set up of dispersive web platform </li></ul><ul><li>... </li></ul>LEARNING OF SCIENTIFIC KNOWLEDGE BY SHARING IT IN OPEN SOURCE AND COPYLEFT LOGIC
    24. 24. <ul><li>> BUT THIS RESTRICT THE KNOWLEDGE (UP-LOADING) DISSEMINATION AND SHARING </li></ul><ul><li>> BUT THIS RESTRICT THE KNOWLEDGE (UP-LOADING) VARIETY AND CROSS-FERTILISATION </li></ul>LENS APPROACH TO SAFEGUARD OPPORTUNITIES AVOIDING THREATS IN A OPEN SOURCE AND COPYLEFT LOGIC 1/2 . only the LeNS partners can up-load learning resources and they respond personally to the scientific quality of contents, i.e. partners constitute the “ scientific board ” . LeNS is a “lens”: it is focused on design for sustainability, focused on PSS innovation, i.e. contents are not dispersive
    25. 25. <ul><li>LENS AS “REPLICABLE” PLATFORM </li></ul><ul><li>THE SAME LENS WEB PLATFORM IS DOWNLOADABLE AS OPEN SOURCE AND COPYLEFT </li></ul><ul><li>> any educational institution, teacher, sustainability-focused network, can generate a new LeNS-based web-platform , reconfiguring it by re-defining partners (the scientific board), the sustainability focus, the geographical representation </li></ul><ul><li>> any new generated web platform upload learning resources independently, thought any is linked with the others </li></ul>LENS APPROACH TO SAFEGUARD OPPORTUNITIES AVOIDING THREATS IN A OPEN SOURCE AND COPYLEFT LOGIC 2/2

    27. 27. go to www.lens.polimi.it and register to join the network 1. if DfS on PSS IS your focus: join and become a member of the network (free), download open learning resources and tools on SPSS; you will receive the lens news letters 2. if DfS on PSS IS NOT your focus or if it is but you want to set up a LOCAL network, download the LeNS site and adapt it to be a support platform for your own issue/local related networking activities, produce your own learning resources and make them publicly available in open source and copyleft
