Challenges and chances of university lecturers’ heterogeneity regarding education for sustainable development
Topic Moving from learning about to learning for and as sustainability
Format Research lab
Authors Teresa Ruckelshauß Teresa Ruckelshauß Florian Kohler Alexander Siegmund
Description University lecturers play a key role in the holistic implementation of education for sustainable development (ESD). In order to provide adequate professional development for them, their predispositions need to be taken into account. In this research lab, we will therefore look at a study among lecturers in Germany that examined the lecturers' prior knowledge and individual attitudes regarding ESD. We compare the results with the participants' experience. How can heterogeneity be addressed and how can we best profit from this heterogeneity?

How to acquire Future Skills within student life cycles? The necessity of curricular adjustments – from mission statements for teaching to practical implementation on the basis of ‘ESD key competences’
Topic Co-creative, transformative learning environments
Format Action atelier
Authors Alexandra Wolf Dr. Josefa Scalisi & Alexandra Wolf
Description Based on a short introduction of our inter- and transdisciplinary module “Introduction to Sustainable Development” for all our first-semester students of the bachelor´s degrees, we would like to discuss with the participants what it means to train change agents as a university and how to enable to acquire Future Skills within the student life cycle (SLC). On the basis of the education for sustainable development and the Doughnut Economics, the aim is to work on a study model for an exemplary inter- and transdisciplinary approach. We will also address the challenges of implementing inter- and transdisciplinary teaching formats in higher education. By means of creative methods, solutions are jointly developed and discussed. With the help of the SLC model, the participants can develop and visualize (competency) models and future skills for the different study cohorts/semesters. The group should actively engage in action and exchange and learn from the examples of others. Therefore the Eberswalde study model, which is currently being developed, can serve as a first orientation.

Institutionalizing transdisciplinary learning on different levels
Topic Moving from learning about to learning for and as sustainability
Format Research lab
Authors Lina Bürgener Lina Bürgener Marie Weiß Annika Weiser
Description In the session, we would like to address the following questions as well as our approaches: i) How can we as a higher education institution embed the idea of transdisciplinary learning systematically into our curriculum? With the module “Science transforms” we follow an interdisciplinary, research-based learning approach, … ii) How can we address the different dimensions of learning in our research? In a cross-faculty research center, we research and support transdisciplinary learning processes for sustainable development in various research projects, putting the dimension of mutual learning between Global South and North at the core of the activities. iii) How can we build capacities on transdisciplinary learning and ensure mutual learning across institutions and countries? With the project tdAcademy, we develop a platform to share insights on transdisciplinary research, offer capacity building formats, as well as provide a space for exchange, reflection, collaboration, and new ideas. During and after the presentation, we would like to engage the audience in conversation about experiences, approaches, potential challenges and coping strategies regarding our questions and transdisciplinary learning in general.

Description Critical Service Learning is a promising format in the context of Education for Sustainable Development. But how can it be introduced at universities? What institutional change might be needed for this? What role can it play within the framework of a whole institution approach as well as for universities contribution to a ”futur-proof economy”? How can the university as a whole benefit from such teaching and learning approaches? How can we create an exchange at eye level between lecturers, students and practice partners? We will discuss these and other questions in this Action Atelier. The workshop will be jointly led by a lecturer, a student and a practice partner.

What students learn in 'Econ101': Time for Change
Topic Rethink the (economics) curriculum
Format Research lab
Authors Michael Mietz Michael Mietz
Description First impressions are everything. Most students who take up an introductory economics course are taught a basic, and standardized story. Econ101 students are expected to learn to 'think like an economist' but this intuition can prove treacherous. There is a growing chasm between Econ101 and the research frontier. This has led to a global movement of students seeking change. In this keynote we present a technique that uses natural language processing to track the changing face of introductory textbooks. The evidence shows that the time has come for a critical and pluralist revolution.

Curriculum design for a sustainable future: the case of the new master in materiomics
Topic Rethink the (economics) curriculum
Format Action atelier
Authors Sarah Doumen Sarah Doumen Jolien Notermans Katleen Denolf An Hardy Dries Vandamme
Description In the new Master of Materiomics, students are trained in conceptualizing and developing alternative, sustainable materials that may contribute to solutions for societal grand challenges and which may help the world to remain within planetary boundaries and not to overshoot. To obtain these goals, interdisciplinary competences are required: while taking the larger societal context into account, students need to cross boundaries between chemistry and physics, as well as between experimental and theoretical/computational methods. During our action atelier, we will further elaborate on how we hope our curriculum design will lead to transformative learning by our students and we will also go deeper into some specific courses and their teaching and assessment approaches. Participants are invited to a) reflect on advantages and obstacles of interdisciplinary competence development for sustainability education and for their own education and b) to design interdisciplinary learning activities for their own courses/educational program according to the four learning mechanisms of boundary crossing theory (i.e. identification, coordination, reflection and transformation; Akkerman & Bakker, 2011).

How to implement education for sustainability at the core of an higher education institution
Topic Moving from learning about to learning for and as sustainability
Format Research lab
Authors Marie Weiss Dr. Marie Weiss Dr. Ingrid Mulà Dr. Anne Zimmermann Mario Diethardt
Description The aim of the research lab is to collaboratively design actions to transform higher education institutions. The research question is: How can individual leadership be supported to “transform and redesign” (Sterling & Thomas 2006) higher education institutions (HEIs) and provide education (and research) “as sustainability”? As a basis for such a discussion, we will briefly present results from two studies. First, results of a meta-study (case-survey analysis) of 131 HEIs around the world showing six distinct implementation patterns: (1) collaborative paradigm change, (2) bottom-up, evolving institutional change, (3) top-down, mandated institutional change, (4) externally driven initiatives, (5) isolated initiatives, and (6) limited institutional change. We will also show what drivers and barriers can be derived from these implementation patterns. Second, to illustrate some drivers, especially individuals taking leadership to transform their HEIs, we will present results from a qualitative study based on interviews with sustainability champions from six different European HEIs. These insights illuminate how individuals help transform their HEIs and how they cope with barriers. Participants will be invited during the presentation of the results to contribute through interactive reflection tasks.

Description Rethinking teacher education - researching and teaching heterodox and pluralist economics - Network studio We are researchers in educational sciences and ecological economics in Sweden with an interest in establishing a research environment that could be the home of courses on different levels, a research school and research projects in strands of economics that do not yet exist. We have a particular interest in the teaching aspect of researching and developing heterodox and pluralist economics. We would like to meet at the Higher Education Summit to find allies with the same interests of researching both heterodox and pluralist economics and new ways of teaching economics, i.e. teaching that enable students to grasp the complex and dynamic relationships between economic, social and ecological dimensions of sustainability. More specifically, in this network studio, we would like to use the time to discuss four different themes. Sharing of experiences for successful building of new research environments? Is there a need for a network? Scanning of other similar networks? Is there a need for a network focusing on the teaching aspect of heterodox and pluralist economics, or are current networks sufficient? Courses for teachers (secondary, upper secondary) Research-school (postgraduate) The agenda for the network studio Go-around: who is here and why? (15 min) Presentation of our suggested topics for discussion (see above) - Presentation of an example of a current course we developed at Stockholm University for upper secondary school teachers (15 min) Choice of topics that are of most interest to be discussed - Discussion/work (30 min each) Summary of outcomes (potential outcomes): - Network-theme: Application for funding, or a start for an application. - Online-course-theme: Outline for an online course for teachers. - Research-school-theme: Identification of funding opportunities, formulation of purpose and content. Anyone with an interest in discussing these themes are welcome. Although we are working in Sweden, we are also interested in getting into contact with people who are or want to do similar things in their contexts.

Description Our study is related to the ongoing project „Circular Design TOOLS for product integrity“ (ŽIEDIS). Most companies are currently profoundly rooted in a linear approach to growth - make, use, dispose, researchers and entrepreneurs, individual innovators – the generators of new knowledge and innovative product ideas, lack the design and circular capabilities. As a result, they meet serious challenges while developing them into products in line with circular economy principles. The project proposes to empower the CE supportive environment by developing CIRCULAR DESIGN TOOLS – CD TOOLS tailored for today's innovators from different industry sectors to create products with higher integrity. If you have ideas how to engage participants of the pre-acceleration program pilot or you have experience how to evaluate the impact of the digital learning tools, maybe you will want to share your thoughts with us?

Authors Maristela do Nascimento Rocha Maristela do Nascimento Rocha Ivã Gurgel Katrien Struyven
Description In this research lab we are going to explore a possible way of decolonizing the curriculum by studying the history of disciplines and comparing them to the knowledge as it is presented in textbooks inside higher education courses. The idea is to try to see that the formal knowledge from today is a selection of meanings that were before connected to actual practices and subjectivities, and in this way, to search for the world-pictures sustaining the language that created this knowledge. The current selection of knowledge favours the values and interests of powerful groups and in order to escape this, we argue that there should be a focus on the teaching of world-pictures instead of knowledge. This would allow for the insertion of the student’s subjectivity – as for creativity and critical thinking, in the Wittgensteinian sense. We defend our argument through an analysis of the Newtonian mechanics as understood by Isaac Newton and what we call “marginal scientists”: Julio Garavito Armero (Colombian, 1865-1920), André Koch Torres Assis (Brazilian, 1962 - ), and Ernst Mach (Austrian, 1838 – 1916). We will invite the public to explore and problematize the presented ideas by trying to apply them to sustainability- or other types of knowledge.

Description DESIDERATRA is a collaboration between the Koning Boudewijnstichting and the VUB. Our aim is to increase climate commitment among young people in Brussels. First, we provide our students with a global view on the causes and consequences of climate change, We focus on 3 particular topics: air pollution, urban farming and circular economy. We start from the dreams, wishes en needs of our students. In order to be able to achieve real transformation regarding sustainable development, we use the methodology of design thinking. By doing so, we give our students a voice in the climate issue, which will also have an impact on their well-being in general. Fed with this knowledge our students get to work with artists from audiovisual and performing arts. Sitting in an imaginary whale belly, our students and artists philosophize together. Their dreams, wishes and needs form the basis of a collage of voices and thoughts.

Transformative learning in the economics course
Topic Rethink the (economics) curriculum
Format Research lab
Authors Lise Janssens Tom Kuppens
Description The topic sustainability has gained increasing importance in recent years, among companies, the government and citizens. Initiatives such as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the European Green Deal should stimulate the transition to a sustainable society. Also education plays a crucial role in making society more sustainable. The modernisation of secondary education in Flanders shows that sustainability is given an more important role. Attention to sustainability is important within various disciplines and should not be limited to science courses. The theme is also important in economics education for example, as it are often students who study economics that later have job positions by the government or in companies that allow them to make policy decisions. At the 'Unesco World Conference on Education for Sustainable Development in 2021', transformative learning was cited as one of the approaches to ‘teach’ about and for sustainability if we want to ensure our survival and that of future generations. But how to teach in a transformative way in secondary education? What is the impact of teaching in a transformative way? And how to measure transformative learning? In our project ‘Transformatie in de klas’ we try to figure it out together with seconday school teachers. Do you want to join this research workshop to investigate it together with me?

Economy Studies: (re)designing economics courses and programs
Topic Rethink the (economics) curriculum
Format Action atelier
Authors Sam De Muijnck
Description Economy Studies is a practical guide for (re-)designing economics courses and programs (www.economystudies.com). The book offers a road map for effectively connecting core academic material to real world events and the great questions of our time, helping professors to engage students and prepare them for the world of today. It emerged from the worldwide movement to modernise economics education, spurred on by the global financial crisis of 2008, the climate crisis, and the COVID-19 pandemic. This workshop is for anyone who is involved in economics education, whether it is as an academic economist, high school economics teacher or student. During the workshop, participants will become familiar with the core ideas and tools of Economy Studies. Furthermore, they will learn in an interactive way how to apply this to their own courses and how they can help change the way economics is taught.

Curriculum Change not Climate Change
Topic Rethink the (economics) curriculum
Format Action atelier
Authors Vivek Gilani
Description Irrigated and informed by the lived experiences of the Fairconditioning Program’s Architecture Academic Curriculum Change Project, this workshop attempts a harnessing of the catalytic potential of a head-heart-hands balance approach to ‘imagine (in place)’ and articulate alternate undergraduate architecture pedagogy paradigms in specific academic contexts (i.e. specific colleges) in Europe. These ‘alternative’ pathways will be defined by learning environments that engender empathy, curiosity, and cultivates skills so that students design sustainably cooled buildings for a heat-wave dominated Europe, as a non-negotiable value (and not a value-addition) as future architects. Participants will deliberate upon and examine a spectrum of possible responses to subvert a largely ‘reactive’ academic culture, subservient to the parochial and short-termism fetishizing patterns of the construction industry. They will be called upon to collectively co-create plausible theories of change and high-level action plans (including illuminating possible pathways to grant-funding) to act in consonance with the Indo-Swiss Fairconditioning Program, undergirded by a beginning-of-pipe approach (as in India), to bend the likely trajectory of the built space economy in Europe: one which is likely to wake up too late to the reality of a failed building stock that is unsuited for a hotter Europe and then lurch towards intensive energy-guzzling and climate-wrecking air conditioning as the new destructive climate-injustice perpetuating ‘default’. The ‘work’ of this workshop will be predicated upon the wholesome wisdom of a systems-thinking approach and will integrate body movement, mindfulness-in-practice and an ‘and-vs-or’ approach to subvert the classic dialectic of the thesis-antithesis and synthesis approach to conceive hybrid system-transformation responses that harness the merits of evolutionary as well as revolutionary means.

Description In this session, we will share the story of our course I-week on Sustainability and how we transformed it into an international hybrid conference with students and speakers from 5 different continents. We will go into the goals we try to achieve with the course; to teach about sustainability, to develop our students intercultural skills and to also trigger personal development around sustainability. In the second part of the session we will go into the challenges we face, ask for feedback and suggestions on our setup, look for dimensions that are missing, and discuss possible extension of this course with additional partners.
