U.S. and international community-based sustainability projects for deep learning
This chapter uses a generic framework for deep learning to help evaluate how one such higher education program located at Worcester Polytechnic Institute fits this framework. Data on learning outcomes provides quantitative support from sustainability-related, community-based projects conducted on an international level. The use of such projects dealing with sustainability issues both locally and globally is detailed with potential application to similar programs as part of a sustainability education curriculum. This analysis provides an opportunity to identify and characterize community-based sustainability projects and their contribution to higher order, integrative, and reflective learning. We present lessons learned and directions for further research with their practical implications.
