Keywords:Environmental education, Outdoor education, Faculty of Transportation Sciences, Road construction, Landscape
The paper is focused on teaching environmental subjects at the Faculty of Transportation Sciences at the Czech Technical University in Prague. Every transport construction affects the territory through which it passes and therefore it is necessary that the surrounding area has been taken into account already in the proposal itself. There are environmental courses at the Faculty of Transportation Sciences: the first (Landscape Protection) was opened in the academic year 1993/94, when the Faculty in Prague was established. The paper evaluates the course paying particular attention to the perception of landscape and its emotional impact in the context of transport structures. This contribution summarizes the various environmental subjects and their specific contents. Furthermore, the article looks at project-oriented teaching and the distribution of bachelor and masters theses based on their thematic focus. The text then discusses the benefits of outdoor lessons for students.
