Learning Activities

The following tasks are required of you for this section:

  1. Study the Seminar notes for this section and follow up with the additional readings until you feel you are ready to meet the learning outcomes for this section.
  2. Answer the study questions in your own notes. You can also post comments or queries on the study questions in the General Discussion Forum. Be sure to stay subscribed to this forum so that you do not miss posts from other learners.
  3. Submit an answer to one of the discussion questions in the Section 1.3 Discussion.
    Note: The forum is set up so that you have to submit your answer to a discussion question before you can read the answers provided by your fellow learners:
    1. Question: Identify the major uses of energy in your organization (or an organization of your choice). Include references to your sources of information (with links to any web-based information).

    2. Question: For your organization (or an organization of your choice), explain any recent examples of dematerialization, smart motor systems, logistics, buildings, and grids (up to three paragraphs).

    3. Question: Describe where dematerialization, smart motor systems, smart logistics, smart buildings, and smart grids are not being used, but could be used in your organization (or an organization of your choice).

  4. Post a response to the postings of at least one of your fellow learners.
  5. Add or edit at least one entry in the Student-created Glossary.
  6. Complete the self-test, which has randomized questions, as many times as you wish. You will get a slightly different set of questions each time.
