課程概述

As the teaching partnership outside of California, United States. This course is based on the model course, Bending the Curve: Climate Change Solutions course, which is designed and produced by a University of California education team that includes: Prof Veerabhadran Ramanathan of the University of California, San Diego who is the leading academician of climate change and also the award winner of Tang Prize in 2018.

“Bending the Curve” course focuses on scalable solutions for carbon neutrality and climate stability. The model course adopts climate change mitigation policies, technologies, governance and actions that California, the UC system, and cities around the world have adopted as living laboratories and challenges students to identify locally and globally scalable solutions. It also adopts the Ten Scalable Solutions as determined by fifty faculties from the 10-campus UC system under UC’s Carbon Neutrality Initiative.

This course is designed as a hybrid course that it combines with the best elements of a traditional in-person class with that of online learning environments and flipped classrooms via NTU-COOL system. This course on climate change solutions provides the tools to students for exploring practical, scalable solutions. Therefore, all students could learn knowledge across the globe and discuss with the local instructors.

Each unit of the course composes studying video lectures and readings, Q & A sessions, lab sessions, and presentations.

Video lectures and readings: The students are expected to have gone through each online videotaped lecture before the class and come prepared to discuss the lectures in the classroom, with in-person instructors. The students also need to study lecture material and complete readings at home before class.
Q & A session (~30 mins): During the in-person discussion session, course instructors and students will have a Q & A discussion of the video lecture and reading materials, or a discussion of the questions given in the video lecture, or the instructors can give their perspectives on the subject matter.
Lab session (~60 mins): The lab session allows students to prepare their final work for presentation and have opportunities to discuss their ideas and concepts with instructors and teaching assistants in class.
Presentations and Discussions (~75 mins): The students will be grouped into teams of about 4-5 each and, in an ideal setting, each team will have students majoring in natural science, engineering and social science. The student's groups will prepare to answer and elaborate on the discussion questions in lectures. The presentation of each group should respond to the discussion questions and elaborate on the solutions and ideas. All students should actively participate in the following discussion and conversation with the presentation group. 

課程目標
Climate change already impacted every individual on the planet. In order to prepare the knowledge on the related issues and carry out the solutions collectively, this course will introduce the six clusters and ten solutions framework created by Bending the Curve report and connect with the local and regional experiences in Taiwan. The framework provided tools to students, so they can bend the curve & preserve nature for future generations. 
課程要求
Every lecture begins with the required reading assignments. These reading assignments will connect with the video lectures and materials provided in the online course. It is important to complete assigned readings before you come to class to discuss weekly topics.

Core readings are 10 chapters from Bending the Curve: Ten scalable solutions for carbon neutrality and climate stability. Weekly lectures begin with required reading assignments. The reading assignments will connect with the video lectures and materials provided in the online course.
