    Danish/Nordic Approach to Transformative Pedagogy and Learning

      For the last 5-10 years the holistic Danish approach to teaching, learning and forming democratic minded and responsible citizens has generated significant international interest. This is due the fact that there is a rising worldwide realization that education in the 21st Century should focus on more than just preparing students to be part of the work-force, it also needs to facilitate the formation of responsible and reflecting members of society. The Danish understanding of education is guided by the concept of "almendannelse" . A concept that entails that the purpose of teaching is to form "whole" human beings, who are willing and able to become active, reflecting and responsible members of society, and has formed an approach to teaching  that focuses on academic competencies such as independent and critical thinking, "soft" social skills such as empathy and "understanding of the other,  and also strives to make sure that  learning is driven by inner student motivation.   In this course, the instructors will concentrate on the best features of the Danish approach to transformative learning, focusing on:      - Teaching independent and critical thinking      - Teaching democratic dialogue - including respect for fellow students      - Teaching students´ ability to reflect on their own identity as citizens      - Teaching working with inner motivation     During the modules the attendees will presented to pedagogical assignments/approaches to teaching, which they can try to implement in their own classes - on assignment approach related to each of the modules.

    Digital Safety

    The use of digital media and platforms has become a seamless extension of everyday life for many people across the world, and, in response to the global pandemic, this has become even more deeply entrenched. While vast inequalities exist, digital platform use is steadily increasing across the globe. Safe navigation of these digital spaces is a critical issue.Whereas many digital safety programmes are focused on digital security, a term which mostly takes into account the protection of digital assets and information, it is vitally important that young people are given tools to maximise their digital safety, a more holistic approach that covers all aspects of potential dangers and harms might encounter in the digital space. There is no point in encouraging young people to limit their digital engagement, as traditional safety programmes have tended to do. This course will be a practical resource that takes into account the realities of our digital world.

    Media and Information Literacy for Empowerment and Advocacy

    The media, in its broadest sense (including all forms of published information across all formats) dominates our lives and informs our decision making, It is therefore essential that young people are able to recognise the many ways this content influences and impacts us, and that they have the tools and skills required to become active and critical, rather than passive, consumers of information. In turn, it is important that young people who want to make an impact on the world around them and become advocates for positive change are able to harness the power of the media and content as a tool for influence. By the end of the course, learners should be able to better evaluate the information that they consume as well as be able to identify opportunities to contribute content to regional and global conversations.
