Une semaine de formation en géographie à Utrecht financée par l'U.E.
L'université d'Utrecht, aux Pays-Bas, organise en juin 2017 une formation destinée aux enseignants de géographie dans le secondaire. Les frais sont pris en charge dans le cadre d'un projet européen à hauteur de 275 € pour le déplacement et 500 € pour l'hôtel à Utrecht. Les professeurs français sont les bienvenus, de préférence par binômes venant d'un même établissement.
Les professeurs de collège et lycée maîtrisant l'anglais seront invités à découvrir Geo future school, un programme éducatif destiné au second degré et s'intéressant aux enjeux du monde contemporain : énergie, changements globaux, soutenabilité, smart cities, gestion de l'eau, citoyenneté européenne et mondialisation. Ce projet s'inscrit pleinement dans les programmes des collèges et lycées et dans les priorités de formation continue des enseignants fixées par le ministère français de l'Éducation nationale.
La formation a lieu à Utrecht du lundi 12 juin au vendredi 16 juin 2017.
Les candidatures sont à envoyer en anglais à Tine Béneker, professeur associé à l'université d'Utrecht (adresse dans le cadre déroulant ci-dessous) avant le 30 mars.
L'appel à candidatures en anglais :
With this letter we would like to introduce you to the Geo Future School concept. Perhaps you are interested in participating in a special training week for (geography) teachers about this program. Geo Future School (GFS) is a new, innovative program in secondary education that focuses on future-oriented education. In the program, funded by the EU, students are encouraged to think about major (European) issues of today and the future, such as:
- Energy, natural resources, climate change issues
- Sustainability and health geography (‘smart cities’ concept)
- Water abundance and scarcity
- European citizenship and globalization
Geography as a multidisciplinary subject is at the centre of these important themes, but other subjects such as history, biology, and informatics play an important role as well. The program emphasizes cooperation between schools, companies and knowledge institutes. This is important for young people, because it encourages their understanding of the daily work at these companies or institutions, and their relevance. Students learn by doing, inside and outside the school. This is done through (international) fieldwork and meeting important actors in the field, for example through guest lessons. Students are challenged to think in terms of solutions and scenarios. Another major aspect in the program, is Geo-ICT. There is a huge demand of well-qualified Geo-ICT professionals who can adequately deal with geo-information. Are you curious to know more? Could this be something to start up in your own environment? For the third time, we are organizing a week for teachers who are interested in the Geo Future School concept. During this week, we will give you input on the content of the program and the important themes. We will introduce you to some important Dutch schools in the field and we will equip you with tools and ideas that you can apply in your own environment. The week will take place from 12th-16th of June 2017. We have an EU budget for ten (geography) teachers to join the program. The budget is to pay your flight up to a maximum of 275 euro and a hotel in Utrecht up to a maximum of 500 euro. From every country two teachers are welcome. At least one of them must be a geography teacher. Both teachers should be teachers that teach regularly in a secondary school with 10-18 year old students.
We prefer to invite pairs of teachers from the same school. Participants should be fluent in English reading, writing and speaking. Preliminary programme
