Teacher training: Implementing interdisciplinary projects

Enrolments are open!

Context:
Nowadays there is a lot of talk about interdisciplinarity, but what is actually happening in schools? How can we deal with the great challenges of our time (e.g. environmental and social problems) in the school context by doing justice to the complexity of the subject matter and going beyond the boundaries of the individual school subjects? What practical and content-related adjustments can we make to make our teaching efficient and truly interdisciplinary?

Objectives:
Knowledge

Participants:
– know the concept and effectiveness of problem based learning
– know different approaches to interdisciplinarity

Content
The Äerdschëff is a building and learning centre for sustainability and regeneration. It is an ecological building which is an example of circular economy in Luxembourg. We use the building, where the training takes place, as a starting point for the reflections on interdisciplinarity.
After a short presentation, the participants have the opportunity to exchange ideas, work together on teaching sequences and consider what possibilities there are in individual subjects to implement interdisciplinarity in practice.
