Scope Integrating sustainability work in the traditional disciplinary degree curriculum is important to advancing the field and training the next generation of material scientists. Also, transitioning knowledge from the research and academic sectors into applied work is critical to realizing sustainability. Papers here are encouraged in novel educational approaches like blended learning, flipped classrooms, MOOCs, etc. as well as approaches for integrating sustainability into traditional disciplinary curriculums like material science. Technology transition, applied learning, and workforce development initiatives will also be highlighted.

Other REWAS 2019 Symposia include:

- Disruptive Material Manufacturing- Scaling and Systems Challenges

- Secondary and Byproduct Sources of Materials and Minerals

- Rethinking Production

- Cast Shop Recycling Technologies
