Active and collaborative teaching and learning techniques on energy and climate change issues in GEES disciplines

The teaching and learning techniques presented in this toolkit are based on the experience gained from the implementation of the InTreAct project, funded by the Higher Education Academy. The aim of the toolkit is to promote active and collaborative teaching and learning techniques of energy issues in GEES disciplines. The toolokit is planned as an open and interactive document that will be reshaped and further developed in accordance with activities aimed at promoting active and collaborative learning in the energy field within higher education institutions.
