Conferece on Higher education Pedagogy
Tuesday 17'th of March 2020, 9:15-16:00, Humanities Theater
Similar to previous years, the Conference on Higher Education Pedagogy organized by the Faculty of Science and Technology, TUK 2020, gives the opportunity to meetings, discussions and presentations of the pedagogical development and educational projects that take place at our faculty. The conference is centered around presentations and discussions with our colleages around various pedagogical projects, including your own if you wish to present your ideas. This provides an excellent forum for pitching new projects and ideas, or make contacts with future partners about educationally relevant issues.
Keynote speaker will be Keri Facer, Zennström professor in Climate Change Leadership, who will give a presentation on
Rethinking Education in the Era of Climate Change.
Abstract: This talk will explore the profound civilisational challenges that climate change poses to universities - to what we teach and how we see our role. It will argue that universities have the potential to make a significant contribution to addressing the mitigation and adaptation challenges of climate change - as institutions and through our teaching and research. This talk will focus in on the role of teachers, the question of intergenerational trust and the strategies that might be developed for embodied, intelligent and wise education under these conditions.
