Ng, Betsy Ling-Ling – Asia-Pacific Forum on Science Learning and Teaching, 2012
Learning of science has been traditionally conducted in classrooms or in the form of lectures. Science education is usually context-specific learning as students are taught a particular module of content in class. In problem-based learning, they are provided with examples of problems in which they learn how to solve these types of problems.…

Lund, Chris; Biswas, Wahidul – Bulletin of Science, Technology & Society, 2008
The lifecycle concept is a "cradle to grave" approach to thinking about products, processes, and services, recognizing that all stages have environmental and economic impacts. Any rigorous and meaningful comparison of energy supply options must be done using a lifecycle analysis approach. It has been applied to an increasing number of conventional…
