Teaching for Sustainability: Exploring campus venues to promote experiential learning

30 augusti 2024 09:00 till 12:15 Seminarium

Join us for an engaging and immersive seminar on experiential learning, where we will explore the vast potential of our campus and its surroundings as dynamic learning environments. Explore teaching venues and approaches that incorporate place-based learning, object-based learning, and imaginative pedagogy to enrich your pedagogical practice.

Experiential learning offers unique opportunities to engage students in learning through direct interaction with their environment. By leveraging the diverse environments and facilities of our campus, educators can create impactful learning experiences that promote deep learning and sustainability.

This seminar is designed to introduce educators to the principles and practices of outdoor pedagogy, place-based education, object-based learning, and imaginative learning. Speakers will showcase their teaching practice and share various venues and approaches to support participants in considering how to utilize campus resources to create enriching learning experiences. The event will blend informative presentations with interactive workshops and guided tours, offering both active listening and hands-on participation from those in attendance.

Note on Accessibility: During the seminar, we will move between LUX, Skissernas Museum, and the Botanical Garden. As such, the seminar involves walking between venues and is most suitable for individuals who can move easily between these locations. We recommend wearing comfortable footwear suitable for walking. If you have mobility concerns or require assistance, please contact the event organisers in advance so that we can make appropriate arrangements to support your participation.

The seminar will be in English.
