Successful funding decision for a new project called “New Northern Pedagogies: Conversations across the Arctic”


University of Strathclyde was awarded a grant for a project titled "New Northern Pedagogies: Conversations across the Arctic" from the Arctic Connections Fund 2022-2023. University of Lapland is a project partner and the project is part of the UArctic Thematic Network Teacher Education for Social Justice and Diversity activities.

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.
