Join us for the International Workshop on Environment, Sustainability, & Education
Speaker: Thomas Hoffmann
Date: Wednesday, Oct 19th, 2022
Climate change and many other global challenges do not only determine our presence but especially our future throughout the 21st century and therefore are rightly thematized at school all around the globe. But how do we teach these topics and should we teach these topics best? Lesson and teaching analysis show that most of the lessons on these topics start with destructive pictures of starving polar bears, burning forests or heavy industrial emissions and focus on the problem while suggested solutions are hardly discussed. Against this background we do have to ask what we might cause with this problem focused teaching culture. Therefore the presentation will discuss whether we might reach more students with a solution focused teaching approach.
