Open Conversations on the Potential for New Teaching on Sustainability at Campus Gotland

3-6 februari 2020

Som forskare, lärare eller student vid Campus Gotland är du inbjuden till en temavecka med fokus på hållbarhet inom utbildning!

Initiativet syftar till att bygga kunskap om hur pågående kurser och program skulle kunna utvecklas för att möta och hantera vår tids hållbarhetsfrågor, kartlägga befintliga kompetenser och kapaciteter inom området, samt arbeta fram förslag på nya kurser och metoder i syfte att stärka utbildningen vid Campus Gotland. 

Veckan leds av Keri Facer, klimatforskare och innehavare av Zennströms gästprofessur i klimatledarskap vid Uppsala universitet, tillsammans med Susanna Barrineau, projektkoordinator vid Swedesd.

Evenemanget genomförs på engelska

In acknowledging the complexity of our world, what kinds of flexible and responsive pedagogies could support and encourage our collective capacity to address sustainability challenges? How can education be organized differently?

The ESD Learning Lab, together with the Zennström Climate Change Leadership Initiative, invite researchers, lecturers, and students on Campus Gotland to a series of workshops and discussions to address these questions!

These workshops aim to build knowledge about how existing courses and programs may be developed to meet present and future sustainability challenges, map out existing competencies and capacities on campus, and also brainstorm what new courses and teaching methods may potentially contribute to Campus Gotland education. During a total of six sessions over four days, we will explore a number of approaches to ESD and discuss how these might be developed in the Gotland context.
