Option 3: Revise or Redesign an Academic Program for Circularity

Learning Design

Revising or redesigning an academic program for circularity may be easy, or it may  require a significant effort depending upon the natural fit of the curriculum. All courses in the program will require  a course review to identify the natural windows in the curriculum to incorporate Circular Economy content and assignments that also support disciplinary goals. The programmatic approach lends itself well to focus on a particular industry sector or a particular CE challenge.
