EduChange Compendium 2018

EduChange is a short name for project titled „Making Knowledge Together – Addressing Climate Change Through Innovative Place Based Education and Blended  Learning“.

Our aim is to innovate our way of teaching about Climate Change in both local and global perspectives via the field course methodology. Teaching and learning in the field is often rather traditional and teacher-led. Through EduChange we aim to transform field courses into innovative, creative learning environments in which teachers, students and pupils create knowledge together.

We strive for field courses that stimulate deeper learning. We achieve this by a student-centred approach and a well balanced mix of innovative teaching methods for field- and place-based education, such as blended learning or modern playful and multimedia methods. Our students experienced both roles – being students during the field-courses and being teachers during their local activities with upper secondary school students. These activities are presented in this compendium.

All the teaching materials that will be created during the project by both teachers as well as students are published online under open licence (creative commons or Open Database License for geodata).
