Abstract: A broad set of multidisciplinary and domain-specific skills is required to create sustainable architecture. Of particular significance are the skills needed for sustainability appraisal and collaborative decision making - highlighted by the construction industry and the government. The development of skills for effective integration of sustainability concepts into the management of architectural projects is vital for the Initial Professional Development (IPD) and Continuing Professional Development (CPD). The Higher Education (HE) is now faced with the challenge to address skills gap and to create a learning environment suitable for IPD and CPD. To reflect the changing needs of the industry, a flexible distance-learning based postgraduate programme on sustainable architecture has been developed at the Department of Built Environment, University of Central Lancashire. This paper reports on the philosophy, course structure and teaching and learning methods of the course.
Description: This paper was presented at GBEN2006: Global Built Environment: towards an Integrated Approach for Sustainability held at the University of Central Lancashire, Preston, UK.
