The HOOU project Lectures for Future (LFF) developed at the Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) produces digital lecture series dealing with current global environmental challenges, such as those related to water, energy, soil and waste resource management. By collaborating with a heterogeneous scientific community, the lecture series tackle these challenges in an interdisciplinary approach. They also present the influence of the topics on the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The aim is to promote digital literacy and carry the Open Science idea forward, which opens new ways of scientific communication. For this, different interactive elements are used to enhance the learner experience such as short videos, quiz questions and links to further reading material.
Additionally, learning materials created by the LFF Team on how to create interactive lecture series can be accessed here.
The Lectures for Future project consists of the following lecture series:
- Project Introduction
- Resource-Optimised Treatment of Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment in the Global Context
- Sustainability in Plastic Waste Management
- Measuring Sustainability
- Residue- and by-product based Bioresources
Each lecture consists of 4 parts, which are produced by researchers in collaboration with the LFF Team. Additionally, there is one learning material about the making of Lectures for Future.
Current global environmental challenges are many times complex and encompass diverse aspects; therefore, they need to be tackled with interdisciplinary approaches. The Lectures for Future (LFF) project aims to do this by producing interactive lecture series dealing with some of these challenges. Lecture series are produced as Open Educational Resources (OERs) by researchers at the Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) in collaboration with the LFF Team. They are created using the open-source tool H5P, which allows creating course presentations that can be enhanced with interactive elements such as videos, audios, quiz questions and links, among others.
LFF aims to spread knowledge on current global environmental challenges by producing lecture series dealing with these issues.
