Metsi a Sekhala (fast water) Metsi a Phallang Butle (slow water): Report on community project outcomes BNB301 field studies in sustainable development
Thomas, Glenn S. (2005) Metsi a Sekhala (fast water) Metsi a Phallang Butle (slow water): Report on community project outcomes BNB301 field studies in sustainable development. Queensland University of Technology.
This report documents the activities of staff and students from the Faculty of Built Environment and Engineering (BEE), Queensland University of Technology (QUT) in Morija, Lesotho. These activities focussed on a community project associated with the inaugural Faculty Elective Unit. The aim is to provide the opportunity for students from across the Faculty to undertake a program of study through direct immersion in a host community in a developing country. It will have a core focus on issues of sustainable development in environments that are outside the core experiences studied in participants’ chosen disciplines. It requires engagement with very different cultural beliefs and practices and the trans-disciplinary exploration of alternative technologies and development ideologies appropriate to the cultural context. The unit involves exploration of relevant theory and practice in the built environment and engineering field guided by the research and practice experience of staff and other specialists. In this context they also support the University’s teaching and learning goal.
