First announcement & Invitation
BUP Teachers Training Conference on Education for Sustainability
27-30 October 2014 in Rogow, Poland
The conference will deal with the challenges regarding education for sustainability in higher education: transforming information from knowledge to learning, enhancing competences for actions "in real life”, problem based, active learning environments and interdisciplinary approaches.
Based on the evaluations from our previous seminar in Turku, Finland November 2014* “hands-on tools”: pedagogical methods, creative, interactive and integrative learning environments should be the prioritized before too many keynote lectures during this up-coming conference. We are happy to announce that Dr. Mona Lisa Dahms from Aalborg University will share her long experience on the principles of Problem Based Learning. We encourage you to propose topics for workshops and short presentations via e-mail to: Ea Blomqvist
There is no conference fee, and accommodation (including all meals) is free for all participants.
Participants are kindly requested to apply for participation directly to their national BUP-centers as soon as possible. The national centers directors will propose a list of participants to the organizers at Åbo Akademi University by September 25, 2014.
