Call for "Pods"
As part of the conference we call on educators and practitioners to contribute to the PodScape, a web-based platform to share Teaching & Learning resources for sustainable design education, piloted by DEEDS. Submitted Pods will be presented, displayed, and discussed at the conference, and become part of an online body of knowledge and resources in sustainable design education.
