Transformative and Transgressive Learning for a World in Deep Trouble
David Selby has been invited to deliver the keynote address at the pan-European conference on InnovativeTeacher Training to support Sustainable Consumption and Production to be held at the University College for Agricultural and Environmental Pedagogy, Vienna, Austria, 29 November 2018. The overarching focus of the conference will be on innovative teaching for sustainable development, the umbrella theme being ‘Enabling-Provocation-Reflecting: Innovations for Future Education’.
David’s keynote title is as above. His brief abstract is as follows: David Selby will look at the ‘multi-crisis syndrome’ the world faces before going on to ask whether sustainability education as currently construed offers a sufficiently transformative (empowering, transgressive and restorative) response. He will go on to propose a curriculum and pedagogy that deepens and stretches what we learn, how we learn and what we do with our learning.
