  • Module 6: two full days (in Stockholm, Sweden) when participants will present the results from activities performed during the course, to the course leaders and to their peers, with discussions and feedback (12-13 June)

Modules 1 and 6 will be physical meetings in Stockholm (Sweden), while Modules 2-5 are carried out as a distance course at the participants’ own institutions and with guidance from the course leaders. During the course, participants report their work and get feedback from the course leaders, both in written reports and at online meetings. Each module comprises five weeks. Expect a workload of an average of four hours per week.

The methods demonstrated during the course are based on modern educational concepts such as digital learning, blended learning, flipped-classroom, active learning and serious games. The course focuses on teaching tools for integrating sustainable development at the course and program level.

Together with your course colleagues you will be able to try a number of educational tools, both as a teacher and in the role of a student. During the course you will be given the opportunity to initiate a process of change at your institution, alternatively work on a concrete, reality-based case that simulates this.

Your own project work during the course is based on your work within teaching at your own institution (at course or program level, whichever is most relevant to you). You will receive personalized tutoring and feedback throughout the course.
