Dear colleagues,

We're excited to announce a new offering of Sustainable Building Design on edX, June 23 - September 22, 2020! The course is a free online version our introductory course on bioclimatic design, daylighting and energy use in buildings at MIT. During the first run we had over 16k participants. Please share with your colleagues and others who might be interested.

[Sustainable Building Design]

By the end of the course, you will:
* understand and apply the scientific principles underlying the thermal and luminous behavior of buildings,
* learn to evaluate the pros and cons of a range of technologies for creating comfortable indoor environments,
* conduct a series of design analysis workflows regarding climate, building energy use and daylighting,
* acquire the knowledge required to critically discuss/present the environmental concept of a building.

A downloadable timeline and syllabus are available as well. For those of you that have audited the course in the past, please note we have changed the assignment due dates to be more flexible.

We look forward to working with some of you,
