How are the loss of biodiveresity, proceeding climate change, deforestation of tropical rain forest, food scandals and fair trade connected to our daily consumption and life style? These questions of interdependency and their social, ecological, economic and political aspects are central to Schools@University.
In order to reach out to students on an emotional level, the format links all senses to theoretical knowledge, thus enabling students to understand and act out topics on a deeper level. Story-writing, experimenting and handcrafting are only a few examples of the many engaging methods engaged to encourage children and teenagers to search for practical everyday solutions by themselves.
These six teaching methods are used in Schools@University:
|Interactive lecture or plenary discussion|
|Simulation games, theatre, quizzes, parciours, food|
|Writing, communication and future workshops|
|Experiments related to Renewable Energies|
|Art and creativity workshops|
Additionally, these five colour-coded key themes are part of our programme:
|Climate change and energy|
|Biodiversity and sustainable development|
|Consumption and Lifestyle|
Annual topic 2013: Mobility, Building, Housing, Transportation
