Making Global Citizenship Education for the Arts & Humanities Virtual Symposium September 28, 2022 11.00 a.m. – 2.00 p.m. (CET)

‘Making’ is a fast-growing trend in recent educational technology. So-called ‘makerspaces’ provide safe areas where students are encouraged to imagine, experiment, perform, and ‘make’. This initiative constitutes a foray into better understanding the value of ‘making’ with a special focus on the potential of maker education for the arts and humanities in the wider context of Global Citizenship Education (GCED).

This project addresses newcomers to ‘making technology’ as well as cordially inviting experts already working in this area to share and discuss their best practice examples. It reaches out to researchers, artists, teachers, and schools interested in empirical and cognitive cultural and literary studies, neuroscience, design, play, creativity, visual studies, and the visual and performing arts. Read the Call for Papers.

Confirmed international speakers include

Assoc. Prof. Stine Ejsing-Duun Ph.D. (Aalborg University) / Assist. Prof.  Magda Pischetola Ph.D. (University of Copenhagen): “Does it matter?”: Learning through aesthetic experiences in a higher education communication design course (abstract)
