Keynotes of the event “New Northern Pedagogies: Conversations across the Arctic” are now published
Project "New Northern Pedagogies: Conversations Across the Arctic" held a three-day symposium in January 2023, bringing together teacher educators from the arctic to debate how the principles of Arctic Pedagogy can support teacher education provision across Scotland. The project is part of UArctic Thematic Network Teacher Education for Social Justice and Diversity activities.
Four keynote speeches were held at the event by Professor Tuija Turunen (University of Lapland), Professor Gry Paulgaard, Associate Professor Kalpana Vijayavarathan-R and Professor Hermína Gunnþórsdóttir. The keynotes are now published, watch the speeches below or on network's YouTube channel.
About the project
The project will provide opportunities for HEI-based teacher educators from UArctic, The Nordic Educational Research Association (NERA) and the digital, open access peer review journal Education in the North (EitN) to explore Arctic Pedagogy within teacher education across various cultures, communities, and curricula.
Through an in-person, three-day symposium we will debate how the principles of Arctic Pedagogy can support teacher education provision across Scotland. Symposium findings and reports will be published in EitN on how the principles of Arctic Pedagogy can support and develop teacher education pedagogy for all learners in Scottish schools.
The project is funded by Arctic Connections Fund is to help Scottish organisations and communities collaborate with partner in the Arctic. See more on the Arctic Connections Fund website.
