Embedding a Transformative Dimension in Teaching and Learning Climate Change
Join us for the International Workshop on Environment, Sustainability, & Education
Speaker: Giulia Tasquier
Date: Wednesday, Febuary 7, 2024
Time: 9:00 am EST
Dealing with the threatening challenges that characterise our era requires the development of knowledge and skills to navigate uncertainty and complexity of science as part of everyday life. How can we support school students in transforming the base of knowledge and experiences to become agents of transformative change as current complex societal challenges require? We address this broader question through a study framed within the Horizon2020 SEAS project (https://www.seas.uio.no), aimed at promoting new forms of scientific literacy and skills to empower students to become agents of change. The project conceives school science as involving learning and transformation across three spheres where both individuals and their institutional contexts change as participants gain agency. The presentation at the international workshop will introduce the approach and an exemplary study that have been illustrated in the paper titled “Scientific Literacies for Change Making: Equipping the Young to Tackle Current Societal Challenges” (freely available here: https://encr.pw/p5LtU).
