Innovative Methods for Tertiary Education for Sustainable Development / ICEBE

536 views

Published on

Based on more than 10 years of experience on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) and on several projects of the UN ESD Decade, we describe several methods for ESD. The main focus is on experiential methods (planning games, projects) and Mathematical Modelling.
Presentation given at the 6th ICEBE conference, Windhoek, 2013-10-08

Innovative Methods for Tertiary Education for Sustainable Development / ICEBE

  1. 1. © Prof. Dr. Ulrich D. Holzbaur, AAUAS STZAM - 1 Methods for Education for Sustainable Development Innovative Methods for Tertiary Education for Sustainable Development International Conference on Engineering and Business Education  Ulrich Holzbaur 1,2  Gerrit Jordaan 2  Monika Bühr 1 1 Aalen University of Applied Science, Aalen, Germany 2 Central University of Technology, Bloemfontein, South Africa
  2. 2. © Prof. Dr. Ulrich D. Holzbaur, AAUAS STZAM - 2 Concept  Innovative Non-traditional  Methods Education Training  Tertiary University  Education ESD for Sustainable Development SD
  3. 3. © Prof. Dr. Ulrich D. Holzbaur, AAUAS STZAM - 3 Outline Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) has been identified by the UN as the most important measure to reach Sustainable Development. > Implemented ESD in tertiary education Why:  orientation towards the future, shaping competences  How:  innovative methods of teaching and learning  What examples  Experiential methods: Planning Games Success in Small Business, Eco² Project Learning PPM / ESPRESSO  Mathematical Modelling Modelling for Insight not for Numbers Science Education Explorhino
  4. 4. © Prof. Dr. Ulrich D. Holzbaur, AAUAS STZAM - 4 Sustainable Development  World Commission on Environment and Development, 1987  Integration of  Socioeconomic Development  Environmental protection  Integration of  Intergenerational Justice  Intragenerational Justice .. to meet the needs of the present without compromising the chances of future generations to meet their own needs .. .. to meet the needs of the present without compromising the chances of future generations to meet their own needs .. .. to meet the needs of the present without compromising the chances of future generations to meet their own needs ..

  6. 6. © Prof. Dr. Ulrich D. Holzbaur, AAUAS STZAM - 6 Planning Games  Learning by playing  Didactics  Situations  Planning Game:  Initial Conditions = Starting Position  Decisions to be made  Dynamics = Rule  Criteria  Conceptual Basis:  Dynamics  Decision  Goal  Didactics  Planning game is more than hard + soft - ware
  7. 7. © Prof. Dr. Ulrich D. Holzbaur, AAUAS STZAM - 7 Example: Success in Small Business
  8. 8. © Prof. Dr. Ulrich D. Holzbaur, AAUAS STZAM - 8  Development of modular set of planning games  From basic economic knowledge to the business plan  Foster entrepreneurship and economic knowledge (pillar of ESD)  Create employment and safe workplaces (impact on SD)  Joint project of Aalen University and CUT + VUT South Africa - faculty of management and economics - science park, technology transfer, entreprenurship/innovation/ center - sustainable development teams, communtiy development - teacher´s education with partners from industry and business Example: Success in Small Business
  9. 9. © Prof. Dr. Ulrich D. Holzbaur, AAUAS STZAM - 9  Students will be involved in the  Requirements Analysis and Development of game and manuals  Testing and training the trainers  Game can be adapted to tertiary and higher education (university: economics and general education, industry, administration) Example: Success in Small Business
  10. 10. © Prof. Dr. Ulrich D. Holzbaur, AAUAS STZAM - 10 Project Method (PPM)  Carry out projects that have  real-life training effect for the students  excellent chances of success  positive impact on community development  Treat projects like planning games
  11. 11. © Prof. Dr. Ulrich D. Holzbaur, AAUAS STZAM - 11 Ecology and Ressources Quality Entreprenurship Science and Statistics Transdisciplinary Work Documentation Literature Survey Team Work Communication Setting Targets Project Mangement Project Number P1 P2 P3 P4 P5 P6 P7 PN Project Portfolio
  12. 12. © Prof. Dr. Ulrich D. Holzbaur, AAUAS STZAM - 12 Experiential aspects of projects  Activation and Decision: Students plan and control, decide and act  Dynamics: as the projects evolves, problems arise and are solved  Didactics: the supervisor considers didactical aims and principles  Skills: Soft skills and competences are supported  Experience: the supervisor considers didactical aims and introduces activation  Model orientation: the project can be seen as a real world model of real problems  Success: the preparation and control by the supervisor ensures training success and achievement of project results  Shaping competences: Project portfolio convers subjects and competences for ESD
  13. 13. © Prof. Dr. Ulrich D.

  19. 19. © Prof. Dr. Ulrich D. Holzbaur, AAUAS STZAM - 19 Mathematical Modelling as ESD  Shaping competences are general  Sustainable development needs also the competence to assess the consequences of our activities  The basis for SD was a mathematical model and a simulation
  20. 20. © Prof. Dr. Ulrich D. Holzbaur, AAUAS STZAM - 20 Modelling and shaping Competences  Modelling is essential for perception, communication, knowledge creation and planning. Hence, modelling supports the following shaping competences:  foresighted thinking;  interdisciplinary work;  planning and implementation;  reflection on individual and cultural models.  Shaping competences and modelling:  1. ethics as a very abstract level of thinking.  2. knowledge: competency to acquire and integrate new knowledge  3. planning as a model of the future  4. action: competency to implement plans  5. reflection: competency to analyse and reflect on processes
  21. 21. © Prof. Dr. Ulrich D. Holzbaur, AAUAS STZAM - 21  The optimal use of renewable energy needs models on several scales of  Space  Time  Number  Reliability  Decisions  Carriers Example: Modelling for Renewable Energy
  22. 22. © Prof. Dr. Ulrich D. Holzbaur, AAUAS STZAM - 22  Problems in Sustainable Development are too complex to be modeled with one formal mathematical model (Network, differential equation, …)  Important aspects need to be modeled:  Structure and relations  Dynamics and feedback loops  Decision and behavior  Uncertainty  The Atlas covers all aspects with common semantics and compatible syntax Modelling Atlas
  23. 23. © Prof. Dr. Ulrich D. Holzbaur, AAUAS STZAM - 23 Science Education by Teaching: Explorhino  Explorhino has a focus on young learners  Students learn by contributing to teaching units and classes. examples:  Water analysis  CO2  Acids  Paper recycling  Cooking skills  Biogas plant  Brewing beer  Soap production  Cleaning  Energy  Fire and safety
