The first edition of the magazine “Citizens for change”, a messenger of the Civica Mobilitas program for support of the civic society of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC), but also, a messenger of the civil society in general. The name of the magazine is taken from the slogan of the program which, we believe, clearly reflects the efforts of Civica Mobilitas, and more widely as well.

(a) taking responsibility for learning, 

(b) active involvement in learning, 

(c) purposeful manipulating of objects, 

(d) making links between exhibits and ideas, 

(e) sharing learning with peers and experts, 

(f) showing confidence in learning by asking questions and explaining to peers, and

Reduced public budgets and greater health needs of the aging population call for new solutions for health.

Teamwork and collaboration

For too long education has been predicated on hierarchical, linear pathways with a focus on creating articulation routes to support this form of progress. The pace of change since the year 2000 puts this 20th Century model under great stress as the need for a different form of Lifelong Learning becomes essential.

How can we work differently to address the new context we are working in?

Vicky Duckworth and Rob Smith discuss the Further Education: transforming lives and communities research project that involved interviewing learners on camera to build a picture of their personal and education stories. The stories allow the researchers to understand how an individual's narrative relates to socio-economic, political and historical contexts. A teacher's perspective shows that a shift away from an instrumentalist approach to teaching allows for better rapport with learners and encourages them to engage.

A small team is the most important unit in working life. One needs many kinds of skills when working with different colleagues towards a common goal. Communications must be smooth. Everyone must be able to manage their own performance and some must also manage others. What kinds of skills are needed in this and how can one develop them?

Országos Könyvtári Napok

2019-ben az Országos Könyvtári Napok tematikája az ENSZ fenntartható fejlődési keretrendszerére épül. A "Könyvtárak az emberekért  - felelősségünk a Földért" projekt keretében a kapcsolódó témák közül igyekeznek könyvtári környezetben, sajátos eszközökkel alaposabban körüljárni néhányat a szervezők, bízva abban, hogy az információk átadásával egy-egy apró lépést tehetünk közösen a megoldás felé.

Tinkering creates a bridging point between a learner’s personal interests and experiences and a broad range of possible learning outcomes. It offers valuable opportunities to engage all students in STEM and fosters a more inclusive STEM education. In this way, it is very much aligned with a Science Capital Teaching Approach: fundamentally, it is a highly personalised pedagogy, which allows the learner to follow their own interests and set their own goals.

The Education and Training Foundation (ETF) has launched a toolkit that can be used to utilise students’ digital capabilities to support teaching, learning and assessment. Both the toolkit and a report that details the researcher’s findings can be downloaded from the ETF Excellence Gateway website.
