Our goal is to strengthen and expand the existing partnership between the University of South-Eastern Norway (USN) and Savitribai Phule Pune University (SPPU) with a clear focus on ways to implement Agenda 2030 (sdgs.un.org) in education, with a particular focus on SDG 4.7 - Education for sustainable development and global citizenship.
As a result of TeachIN, we expect increased student mobility of high quality and relevance, both virtual, blended, and physical. We seek to lower the threshold for student participation in internationalization.
Students and teacher educators will explore diverse perspectives on teaching and learning for sustainable futures. Students from SPPU, USN and other universities will be given the possibility to enroll in two online courses (2 x 5 ECTS), jointly developed and implemented by the TeachIN team focused on 1) Sustainable Development Goal 4 (SDG 4) and 2) Global Citizenship.
The TeachIN team will organize regular webinars and workshops for knowledge exchange and the development of teaching materials. Both universities will include affiliated schools in TeachIN activities for bridging the gap between teacher education and schools.
Joint interdisciplinary research will focus on content and teaching methods for sustainable futures relevant to teacher education and schools in both
countries and elsewhere.
MA students will be included in the research community.
The TeachIN team will contribute to the international teacher education community with peer reviewed publications and other dissemination activities, in addition to two globally accessible online courses for teacher education students.
