In January we will launch the next round of our popular course in Education for Sustainable Development: Pedagogical Methods for Integrating Sustainable Development in Education. The course starts on Wednesday 9 January 2019 with a two-day session here in Stockholm where we will have a series of interactive exercises and workshop seminars. Most of the course is then run as a distance learning course from January through June and ends with another two-day session in Stockholm on 12-13 June.
The methods demonstrated during the course are based on modern educational concepts such as digital learning, blended learning, flipped-classroom, active learning and serious games. The course focuses on teaching tools for integrating sustainable development at the course and program level.
We will go through a number of educational tools, not least the educational games that I have been involved in developing and using in my own classroom. Those include DILEMMA, FishBanks, Clime Out and In the Loop. Naturally, we will also be using the Snowflake Education online Toolbox for sustainability education, both as the learning platform used during the course itself and as an online reference resource for teaching material that participants could use in their own classroom during and after the training course.
During the course all participants will be given the opportunity to initiate a process of change at their own institutions, alternatively work on a concrete, reality-based case that simulates this. All participants will also receive personalized tutoring and feedback throughout the course.
I hope that you’ll join in and register! See you in Stockholm! 😊
