What, how and where we prepare for today's innovation society is a new question for educational practice, research and policy.
- How can young learners work together and make creative solutions for societal issues?
- Which knowledge and which methods support teachers and learning facilitators in this process?
- How can these be integrated into the educational landscape?
Under the patronage of the Austrian UNESCO Commission, the organizers of this symposium invite to exchange experiences and strategies and to test new innovation methods for a sustainable future. In working groups, the participants will have the chance to deal with the challenges, experiences, and potential of initiatives and methods around "innovation education for young people".
Additionally, a small marketplace offers on-site practical experience by presenting various teaching and learning materials of the participating initiatives. There will also be the opportunity to participate in a train-the-trainer workshop on social innovation and entrepreneurship for the young generation.
The conference is aimed at practitioners, multipliers, teachers, researchers and those interested and responsible in education, innovation and educational research and politics.
Time: Thursday, September 24th, 2020, 8.30 - 17.00.
The event is free of charge.
