For the InstructorThese student materials complement the Coastal Processes, Hazards and Society Instructor Materials. If you would like your students to have access to the student materials, we suggest you either point them at the Student Version which omits the framing pages with information designed for faculty (and this box). Or you can download these pages in several formats that you can include in your course website or local Learning Managment System. Learn more about using, modifying, and sharing InTeGrate teaching materials.
Goals and Objectives
Students will develop an understanding of smart building, building with nature, and approaches to smart building that were historically and are presently used for flood control, hazard mitigation, and risk/energy reduction.
By the end of this lesson, you should be able to:
- understand the benefits of building with nature, and distinguish smart building approaches;
- implement smart building approaches to aid in the expansion of one city that is threatened by sea level rise and storms, and employ building with nature and layered defense approaches in the design;
- integrate concepts of resiliency and coastal flood protection through massive nourishments, and how these new methods are setting trends in smart building along coastlines.
