Applied learning articles shared for public education

The applied learning articles in this public educational resource were produced from applied research and teaching and learning activities done with university students to educate them on how and what it takes to solve sustainable building value delivery problems and why. The articles are shared for public education only, not shared to communicate new scientific knowledge but to invoke readers’ critical thinking and reflection needed to develop engineering philosophy and technical knowledge and contribute to the human empowerment needed to improve industry and education practice.
