First announcement


Re-thinking of pedagogy for implementing education for sustainable development in the Baltic University Programme countries

Dear BUP colleagues,220px The Baltic University Programme logo

We would like to invite you to participate in the EduBUP project  which is aimed to address university teachers in the Baltic University Programme countries and focused on the personal devlopment of each specific teacher, as well as transformations at university level (on implementing Education for Sustainable Developmetn (ESD) by changing the curriculum and teaching and learning methods).The project will illustrate pedagogical principles and processes that need to be integrated in teaching and learning to achieve ESD learning principles.

The Change project Approachwill be used for the EduBUP project. The approach consists of several phases: Preparatory Phase in which participants develop a pre-course assignment which highlights what needs to be changed;  The First Regional Workshop (Workshop 1) during which the project groups and projects titles are defined; Intermediate  Consolidation Phase when participants work on the projects at their respective universities; and  The Second Regional Workshop(Workshop 2) when the reports on the project progress are to be presented and peer reviewed.

Participants will need to allocate certain time for taking part in two workshops and working with the projects. We estimate that full participation in the course would be equal to 10 working days including workshops 1 and 2. After successful participation in the whole course the certificate confirming participating in 20-day course will be awarded.

Application process:
Application is open to a team of  2 or more persons from the same insitution/ faculty/ etc, not for the individuals because it is important to work in collaboration in order to implement changes. Gaining skills of team building, groups dynamics, improvement skills for cooperation and communication will be added values of participation.The First Regional Workshop (Workshop 1) will be held  28-30 January, Tallinn, Estonia

The objective is to give PhD students from the BUP network’s countries the possibility to meet and discuss scientific problems with focus on sustainable development in an interdisciplinary, international, multicultural, and regional context. In this way, students will also get the opportunity to become acquainted with other universities and their scientific traditions. The training program will be based on an interdisciplinary approach.

This international training program will enrich the students’ own perspectives on sustainable development with experiences and perspectives from other countries. At the same time it will serve as a platform for the development of a common understanding of the regional problematique and open avenues for future cooperation on these issues. Interdisciplinary training at the PhD-level is essential for creating an understanding between scientists and researchers with different backgrounds (Western and Eastern European cultures), and for their future collaboration for a sustainable future.

Methodology of the training

The training will take place 25-29 November 2018, with the participation of 30 PhD–students and an expert team.

PhD-students will be offered training in interdisciplinary research cooperation with the guidance of an international group of experts composed of (other) senior scientists working on interdisciplinary research, benefiting from the interaction with them.

Program of the conference contains: lectures, workshops, students’ presentations of PhD work, individual consultancies of PhD work with international experts.
