New Survey on Energy Education - We Want Your Views!
22 Nov 2018
The Whole Systems Energy – Sustainability and Energy Education Network (WSE – SEEN) are proposing to build an online community of practice, repository of teaching/learning materials and database of experts/expertise specifically dedicated to interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary teaching and learning in energy. This survey is to gauge feedback from the wider community to help steer the direction of this community of practice. The soft deadline for survey responses is Friday the 14th of December.
They welcome input and membership from across the energy field from people with a diverse range of experience including industry, policy makers, third sector as well as researchers, lecturers, module leaders and managers of education programmes.
We are not aware of a network like this at the moment - and believe that encouraging a multi-disciplinary environment for learners who will be involved in changing energy systems around the world is important.
The Network would therefore be very grateful if you could take the time (10-15 minutes) to undertake the survey - or perhaps even email any thoughts to Dr Grant Wilson at: firstname.lastname@example.org
The survey is comprised of 10 questions, divided in the following pages:
- About you
- About your teaching and learning experience
- What works as an online community of practice?
- Access and contribution of information / content through the community of practice
- About a multidisciplinary energy teaching and learning workshop
The Whole Systems Energy – Sustainability and Energy Education Network (WSE – SEEN) is a collaboration between the Universities of Birmingham (Dr Grant Wilson, Dr Claudia Favero, Omar Saeed), Manchester (Dr Carly McLachlan), Edinburgh (Dr Dan Van der Horst) and Leeds (Dr Catherine Bale)
The project is funded through the UK Energy Research Centre's Whole Systems Networking Fund.
The Network have used onlinesurveys through JISC as a secure environment for the survey data. In order to adhere to EPSRC’s expectations for data management, they will ensure that data is securely preserved for a minimum of 10 years from the "date that any researcher ‘privileged access’ period expires or, if others have accessed the data, from last date on which access to the data was requested by a third party" and that "all reasonable steps will be taken to ensure that publicly-funded data is not held in any jurisdiction where the available legal safeguards provide lower levels of protection than are available in the UK"

As we approach the end of this year’s teaching, we are counting down to the inaugural TeachEnergy workshop to start to create a community of practice around teaching energy.
Decarbonising heating systems in the UK presents a major challenge. UKERC and University of Exeter researcher Richard Lowes offers 10 steps to make it a reality.
A UKERC-funded workshop brought together researchers with expertise in energy, environmental and behavioural economics, stakeholders and industry to understand the role of age, latency, gender and how to empower the next generation of elderly women for a transition to low-carbon technologies at the household level.
Many countries are realizing the enormity of the Energy Transition. This has been prompted by commitments made in Paris COP21 Agreement. In this energy transition, whatever the timeframe, the fundamental part of it is justice. Society needs this just transition. And the momentum is gathering.
