Review of sustainability terms and their definitions
Peter Glavič, Rebeka Kovačič Lukman, 2007, original scientific article

Abstract: Terminology in the field of sustainable development is becoming increasingly important because the number of terms continues to increase along with the rapid increase in awareness of the importance of sustainability. Various definitions of terms are used by different authors and organizations, for example, green chemistry, cleaner production, pollution prevention, etc. The importance of this topic has stimulated research into the problems of clarifying ambiguity and classifying terms used in the sustainability field. This paper provides results of the literature survey and summarizes the definitions of the terms, focusing on the environmental engineering field. In some cases, it proposes an improved definition. A hierarchical classification of the terms and their relationships has been based on a layer format that is presented graphically.
Keywords: chemical process design, sustainability, environmental protection, cleaner production, terminology, definitions, classification

The sustainable university as a system: The case of the University of Maribor
Rebeka Kovačič Lukman, Peter Glavič, 2007, published scientific conference contribution

Abstract: This paper deals with the university as an institution that responds to global problems, using creative, real-world problem solving, based on "learningby doing". Sustainability-oriented problem solving at the university require new approaches, based on interconnection and collaboration within a system (university) and with other systems (municipality, enterprises). The University of Maribor has been used as a case study to explore management changes and curricula improvements, based on the principles of communitarianism and improved ways of communication within the university.

Engineering education: environmental and chemical engineering or technology curricula - a European perspective
Peter Glavič, Rebeka Kovačič Lukman, Rodrigo Lozano, 2009, original scientific article

Abstract: Over recent years, universities have been incorporating sustainable development (SD) into their systems, including their curricula. This article analyses the incorporation of SD into the curricula of chemical and environmental engineering or technology bachelor degrees at universities in the European Union (EU) and European Free Trade Association (EFTA) states. Available textbooks of some courses were analysed regarding their content and pedagogical-didactical perspectives based on a revised Bloom's taxonomy of cognitive domains. The research showed that both the universities and textbooks reviewed have room for improvement regarding SD incorporation into their curricula.

Exploring non-traditional learning methods in virtual and real-world environments
Rebeka Kovačič Lukman, Majda Krajnc, 2012, original scientific article

Abstract: This paper identifies the commonalities and differences within non-traditional learning methods regarding virtual and real-world environments. The non-traditional learning methods in real-world have been introduced within the following courses: Process Balances, Process Calculation, and Process Synthesis, and within the virtual environment through the European funded Lifelong Learning Programme project at the University of Maribor. The results, based on qualitative research in both environments show the appropriateness of non-traditional learning methods in comparison with traditional ones, although collaborative learning in both environments causes several frustration based on conflicts (personal or disagreements during the learning phase), influencing the efficiency of the learning process. This presents opportunities for improving and overcome emerging barriers by fostering motivation and interactivity.
Keywords: non-traditional learning methods, collaborative learning, virtual environments, real-world environments

What are the key elements of a sustainable university?
Rebeka Kovačič Lukman, Peter Glavič, 2007, original scientific article

Abstract: Nowadays, the principles of sustainable development are becoming increasingly important and universities are acting as agents in promoting these principles within society. In the future, universities will inevitably play crucial role in propagating these principles. This paper highlights important documents and discusses definitions of the term education for sustainable development. Elements, based on continuous feedback loop (Deming spiral) are discussed, in order to incorporate sustainability principles into university activities. The University of Maribor has been used as a case study to test the effectiveness of the proposed integration of sustainable development principles.
