Bæredygtighed i ’glokal’ uddannelse
Professionshøjskolernes årlige internationale konference vil derfor i 2019 have fokus på, hvordan vi som uddannelsesinstitutioner bidrager til bæredygtig udvikling i et globalt-lokalt perspektiv.
Dette inkluderer, hvordan vores samarbejde med internationale institutioner, studerende, og efterfølgende arbejdstagere bidrager til en bæredygtig fremtid i og uden for Danmark – både inden for uddannelse, jobs og økonomisk vækst, sundhed og trivsel samt ligestilling.
Målgruppen til konferencen er både medarbejdere på professionshøjskolerne samt eksterne interessenter, der samarbejder med internationale institutioner, studerende og medarbejdere
Pris og tilmelding:
Pris for hele konferencen (inkl. middag og overnatning): 1.780,00 kr. ekskl. moms.
Pris for dag 1 (inkl. middag): 820,00 kr. ekskl. moms.
Pris for dag 2: 352,00 kr. ekskl. moms.
Tilmeldingsfrist 15. marts.

Key-note presentation ”Creating Sustainable Solutions for Lifelong Learning in Higher Education”
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development sets ambitious goals to transform our world, balancing the economic, social and environmental dimensions of sustainable development. The Agenda encompasses all aspects of our lives, which implies that learning must be both life-long and life-wide. (See e.g. sustainable development goal Nr. 4: Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all). It clear maps out that prosperity in both social and economic terms of human societies around the globe will depend on the opportunities individuals have to learn and develop throughout their entire life. Individuals, organisations and nations have to ask themselves how suitable learning ecologies to allow this growth can look like and can be achieved. This becomes even more challenging because lifelong learning (LLL) is not a clearcut concept but rather a leitmotiv which comes with multiple forms, shapes and realities. We cannot create it but will notice if it is not supported. For higher education institutions this poses a serious challenge: While they seem to have a survival guarantee as they possess the socially granted privilege to be degree-awarding, it more and more becomes clear that,if they want to defend their place as main source of innovation and places for competence development for future graduates, they have to rethink their key work processes in the light of new lifelong learning necessities. Universities have to push for a change of long-standing values, habits, believes, of both management and faculty level. If we take a look at HEIs, the field of LLL is too often still underdeveloped, and it will take total systems efforts to turn them into vibrant centers for higher lifelong learning around the globe.

Paul Warwick, Associate Professor and Centre for Sustainable Futures Lead, University of Plymouth, Storbritannien
Dr. Paul Warwick’s role at the Centre for Sustainable Futures at the University of Plymouth is to direct the integration of sustainability education into the heart of the student experience, working across all faculties and with a wide range of community partners. Paul has worked for twelve years within Higher Education taking a leading role in developing a variety of educational innovation and reform initiatives primarily concerned with Citizenship Education and Education for Sustainable Development (ESD).
Key-note presentation ”Flightpaths to Sustainability Education during turbulent times”
Paul Warwick’s keynote will share some of the key lessons learnt from Plymouth's 12-year journey of re-purposing towards a vision of the sustainable civic university. In so doing he will present the case for empowering students as 'compassionate critical creatives' who learn through making a difference within their local, national and global communities. Connecting such a mission to the UN Sustainable Development Goals agenda and UNESCO's Global Action Programme of Education for Sustainable Development Paul will argue that this can provide Universities not only with community and institutional support but crucially enhanced levels of student engagement. But with this, also comes a number of key challenges for institutional change.

Nicholas Krouglicof, Professor, Faculty of Sustainable Design Engineering, University of Prince Edward Island, Canada
Dr. Nicholas Krouglicof is a Professor and the inaugural Dean of University of Prince Edward Island’s new Faculty of Sustainable Design Engineering (FSDE). The FSDE provides students with a unique learning environment that is hands on, team focused, project based, and industry linked. Starting in their first year, students put their skills and knowledge to work designing innovative, targeted, and sustainable processes, products, and solutions that improve people’s lives and better society. Dr. Krouglicof came to UPEI from Memorial University of Newfoundland where he was Head of the Department of Mechanical Engineering. He also served as the Principal Investigator (PI) for the Inspirus Project, a five-year, $3.6M research and development project led by Memorial University of Newfoundland in collaboration with Boeing Phantom Works, the advanced prototyping arm of a Boeing Defense, Space, and Security.
Key-note presentation ”The Transformation of Engineering Education: Instilling an Awareness and Understanding of Sustainability Principles”
Today’s engineers are problem solvers. They serve the public interest by delivering innovative solutions to a wide range of modern-day problems through the skilled application of scientific knowledge, mathematics, professional experience, and ingenuity. In arriving at a solution, they must consider a range of factors including practicality, ethics, sustainability, safety, and cost.
The University of Prince Edward Island’s Faculty of Sustainable Design Engineering is devoted to developing engineers with exceptional design and professional skills combined with a global perspective; engineers who are broadly capable, globally and socially aware, creative, communicative, and entrepreneurial.
This presentation outlines the ongoing transformation of engineering education from the traditional narrow focus on “form, fit, and function” to a broader perspective that emphasizes innovation and achieving a balance between environmental, social and economic factors while contributing to healthy surroundings in the built and natural environment. Several case studies will be presented where sustainability and economics were successfully balanced by applying an innovative problem solving approach.
