TEACHING RISK MANAGEMENT AND SAFETY AS A TOOL FOR SUPPORTING SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT – A CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2011
Training of engineers as one of the main factors for implementing sustainability in industry is a key task. Due to this fact, the courses given in Chalmers should be adapted to the goal of sustainability. This could not be gained without integrating of risk assessment, as a tool of loss prevention, into different course curricula. To meet the demands, a course entitled “Risk Management and Safety” is offered two times a year to pre-service teachers that study in Chalmers master and doctoral programmes. This paper is concerned with present-ing a method for developing a course curriculum including designing, control and evalua-tion of the projects as an essential part of the course. Industrial patterns have an important role especially in designing and evaluating the projects. The learning outcomes and the work efficiency are also controlled and evaluated through a questionnaire and personal interviews.
