The Læra Institute holds regular workshops to support UArctic member faculty teaching Circumpolar Studies. These workshops focus on teaching about the Circumpolar world, rather than on researching it. Our workshops give UArctic member faculty the opportunity to share pedagogical best practice — educational innovation, teaching materials and techniques, and experience of different teaching styles and contexts, from traditional teaching in the classroom to alternative methods of experiential or on-the-land teaching. Our workshops also give faculty the chance to consider Circumpolar Studies in the round — its subject matter, methods and meaning.
Whilst the Covid-19 pandemic has delayed our plans for in-person faculty workshops, we hope to be able to announce future workshops here soon. Past Læra Institute faculty workshops have included:
- 12th March 2021 — 'Circumpolar Studies Is...' (online)
