LEARNING AND TEACHING METHODS
The subject is based principally on presentations by experienced industry professionals who present case studies in their area of expertise. In addition each student prepares and presents a tutorial research paper on a topic of their interest selected from an extensive list. A computer laboratory is used to investigate the potential environment impact of a landfill due to leachate movement. Several site visits to industrial and waste management facilities form the basis of journal entries where students reflect on their changing understanding of waste avoidance and management.
