The UArctic Læra Institute for Circumpolar Education will host a session entitled 'Innovation and pedagogy in Circumpolar Studies' at the 4th UArctic Congress, taking place 4-7 October 2022 at Lomonosov Moscow State University, in Moscow, Russia.
This session is devoted to educational innovation and pedagogical scholarship related to the Arctic or Circumpolar North at university or secondary school, including not only regular classroom teaching, but also online delivery (e.g. the UArctic Circumpolar Studies Programme) and other modes of learning (e.g. Model Arctic Council at secondary-school or university). Papers regarding innovation or pedagogy in the humanities, social sciences or natural sciences are equally welcome. One main goal of this session is to understand better how teaching of the Arctic or Circumpolar North is embedded within certain ‘framings’ or ‘imaginaries’. Another is to investigate critically the institutional structures in which this teaching takes place. It is hoped that this session will also go some way to promoting international linkages and the sharing of best practice between educators concerned with the Arctic or Circumpolar North.
Interested scholars or practitioners should please submit abstracts following the submission guidelines on the UArctic website.
The deadline for abstracts is 15 February 2022. We look forward to your submissions!
