GREENING OF E-LEARNING CHECK OUT (GECKO)

Gilly Salmon

Abstract


GECKO, an exploratory pilot project, found there was no significant difference between total carbon emissions created by students during a blended learning module, i-Science, and those emissions created by students during a face-to-face Physics module and that establishing individual carbon emissions by a particular student is very challenging. However, GECKO developed a Learning Carbon Footprint based on four key parameters (ICT, paper, energy and travel) to inform the University’s policy on environmentally sustainable learning and teaching. To promote discussion of this policy, the report includes hypothetical examples of Learning Carbon Footprints from each of the University’s four Colleges.
