|Description of the Dataset||The resource consists of a well-structured course curriculum for the English-as-a-foreign-language classroom, packaged in a Moodle file and accompanied with teaching notes and a Moodle overview. The course is designed to explore and understand the topic of renewable energy in the community and provide a robust framework for a renewable energy course. The course centers around the fictional town of Leinwig, where students are presented with the opportunity to contribute to the town's transition to renewable energy sources. The teaching notes provide teachers with in-depth explanations and essential teaching points as well as suggested approaches for interactive activities. The Moodle overview serves as a tutorial offering a step-by-step walkthrough of Moodle's various features and functionalities. As a culminating project outcome, students are tasked with presenting their solution in a concise 3 minute video and pitching their approach to an expert commission. This project-based learning approach encourages students to integrate their knowledge, showcase their creativity, and demonstrate their understanding of renewable energy concepts in a real-world context. By immersing the students in critical thinking, data analysis, and problem-solving exercises, they are empowered to develop an action plan that encompasses the key elements of economic viability, ecological sustainability, and technological feasibility.|
