    Eventbrite - Doing Things Differently: Intercultural Research and Learning for Sustainability

    ‘Sustainability’ is commonly perceived as environmental issues by another name – an unhelpful editing of a concept where environmental and social issues are inextricably linked. At the root of every environmental issue you will find issues of justice, equality and power relationships. Culture and ecology are mutually dependent and inseparable in achieving sustainability.
    Our perception of what we can or cannot do is shaped by deeply held cultural attitudes, dependent to a large extent on how we think collectively – as a social class , a circle of friends, an ethnic group or an academic discipline. Cultural discourse is as much a part of our collective journey towards sustainability as the natural sciences and technological innovation.
    This interdisciplinary seminar is organised jointly by Learning for Sustainability Scotland and Heriot-Watt University’s Intercultural Research Centre. Together we will look at challenges arising from different cultural perspectives on sustainability. This seminar will explore areas where intercultural research – research that takes place between and across different cultures – can support learning for sustainability in a wide range of spheres: from the natural and built environment to social and economic issues.

    Practical support that will enable school leaders to address Learning for Sustainability

    Practical insights from leading experts in Learning for Sustainability: a key Scottish Government, GTCS and schools priority for successfully implementing Curriculum for Excellence and raising achievement and attainment across the school.

    Programme Summary

    A whole school approach to Learning for Sustainability is as an effective way of successfully implementing Curriculum for Excellence and raising achievement and attainment across the school.  It is also an entitlement for every pupil in Scotland as well as a central aspect of the GTCS Professional Standards for teachers at every stage of their career.  However delivering this effectively is a key challenge for school leaders and their colleagues faced with an ever increasing ‘to do ‘list.

    This highly interactive programme will highlight simple steps that school leaders can take to develop an effective whole school approach to Learning for Sustainability. It will enable you to effectively plan for and implement Learning for Sustainability requirements in your school in ways that will significantly enhance the educational experience of your pupils. A free follow-up twilight course is available to provide the opportunity for continuing collaboration with colleagues and for sharing insights from critical self-evaluation, reflection and enquiry.

    You will:

    • Develop your understanding of Learning for Sustainability and examine its context in Scotland’s schools
    • Participate in approaches to leading Learning for Sustainability in the context of Curriculum for Excellence
    • Receive take-away materials that will be of practical value to you as a school leader
    • Understand the key steps to take in developing an effective whole school approach to Learning for Sustainability.
    • Collaboratively develop a practical Learning for Sustainability Action Plan for use in your school

    Who is this course for?

    Head Teachers, Depute Head Teachers and Principal Teachers in primary or secondary schools, and local authority officers with a key role in supporting Learning for Sustainability development.

    Who will run this course?

    This course is delivered by Scottish Learning for Sustainability experts Betsy King and Morag Watson of Learning for Sustainability Scotland; Scotland’s UN Regional Centre of Expertise on Education for Sustainable Development.

    Cost:  £125

    Making durable, long-term change happen through a values-based approach     

    • How does change happen in groups, organisations and societies?
    • What are cultural values and why are they important to making lasting change happen?
    • How can we use our understanding of change & values to address social & environmental issues?

     

    In this participative workshop you will appreciate how change happens and recognise the importance of values when addressing social and environmental issues.  You will explore the individual, social and material factors that shape our behaviour and look at the different roles individuals and groups can play to create durable, long-term change that addresses problems such as climate change, global poverty, inequality and more.

    The workshop will show how we sometimes inadvertently employ tactics that undermine our efforts, creating a vicious cycle. You will discover alternative approaches you can use instead to create a virtuous cycle that reinforces our collective efforts.

    The Wholehearted Approach to Change draws on Common Cause, the ISM Tool, and diffusion theory

    Lunch & Tea/Coffee: A vegetarian lunch and refreshments will be provided. 

    Cost: £43.50 click here to book

    What does an education system based on “values” and “character” look like? How do we enable good values-based learning? What resources can help us do this?

    We will address these questions and others over two days of workshops and talks, inviting anyone who is interested in, or already applying, a values-based approach to education.

    Day 1 is practice focused, inviting people to share their experiences working on values across the education sector, including primary, secondary and tertiary education; outdoor education and youth work. We will discuss what has worked, and what hasn’t, and identify where we can share resources and offer support.

    Day 2 is a policy focused event to develop a consensus position on values in school education, what a values approach brings to education and what resources/sources of support already exist in this area (both North and South of the border).

    This event is hosted by the Public Interest Research Centre (PIRC), Character Scotland, Learning for Sustainability Scotland and Lifeworlds Learning. You can apply to either day, or the full conference, and there is a small fee to help us cover the costs of food and hosting.

    Date: November 20th–21st, 10–4 pm
    Cost: £25 for one day, £40 for both

    We are hosting two member events on 21 May 2015 which look at developing funding strategies. Feedback from our AGM showed that fundraising is becoming a bigger part of LfS Scotland members' day-to-day working lives. We found that many of us have limited or no experience of the fundraising process; or of how to tailor our language so we speak effectively to funders; or even how to be confident and ask for the money we need to move our projects forward.

    As a result, we've developed two fundraising workshops on Thursday 21 May 2015 at Moray House School of Education, Edinburgh.

    Workshop 1: The morning session - Getting The Basics Right is aimed at staff, volunteers and Board members who are new to or starting to fundraise and wish to build their knowledge, skills and confidence

    The objectives are:

    • To understand the things that need to be in place before you start to fundraise
    • To gain an overview of the current funding landscape in Scotland
    • To look at the elements of a effective case for support – the basis for all successful fundraising

    Click HERE for more information on this workshop.

    Workshop 2: The afternoon session - Approaching Funders Effectively - is aimed at staff, volunteers and Board members who are seeking support for their organisation and wish to explore a range of sources – It is useful to have attended Getting the Basics Right, but not essential

    The objectives are:

    • To review the range of sources of support available – who has the money, how much do they have, who gets it and how much does it cost to raise?
    • To identify what part of the organisational work should be matched with what funding source
    • To look at a variety of approaches and formats for a range of funders
    • To discuss sustainability and full cost recovery

     Click HERE for more information on this workshop

    How to book:

    All workshops can be booked by clicking HERE. Each workshop can be booked as single sessions at a half-day rate of £60 or both can be booked as a full-day event for £100.

    This event is for members of LfS Scotland. Sessions are fully participatory and provide practical skills to take back into the work place. Spaces are limited to please book your place to avoid disappointment.

    A light lunch & refreshments will be provided and a detailed agenda will be supplied nearer the time, although the morning session is likely to start at 10am and the afternoon session likely to end around 4.30pm.

    If you have any questions about the workshops or anything else in connection with LfS Scotland please Abi Cornwall, Development Officer

We’ll show you how to develop a simple social media strategy, how you can measure your success and how you can protect your staff with a robust policy and guidelines.

    Even if you are currently using social media in your work, this training session will develop knowledge you already have and give you a stack of new ideas to boost your output, whilst reducing the amount of time you spend on it.

    This is a full-day, interactive training session. You will leave the session with lots of new practical skills to take back into your workplace and you will have access to resources online to use for a long time to come.

    • EXPLORE the contribution of Education to the new UN Sustainable Development Goals,

They set a challenge for every country to tackle poverty, inequality, climate change and sustainable development with Education, and learning as a central component.   In Scotland, Scottish Government ministers accepted in 2013 that all learners in Scotland’s schools should have an entitlement to Learning for Sustainability supported by practitioners, a whole school approach, school buildings, grounds and policies. Learning for sustainability incorporates global citizenship, sustainable development education, outdoor learning and children’s rights.   Contributors include:

    • Professor Charles Hopkins, UNESCO Chair of Education for Sustainable Development,
    • Professor Pete Higgins, Chair of The Scottish Government’s LfS Implementation Group

    Building Connections with Nature

    Tuesday 1 December, 10am - 4pm

    Perth Museum & Art Gallery

    The 'Connected to Nature' task group is delighted to announce an exciting full day event in Perth, which will bring together academics, practitioners and other professionals from teh field of outdoor environmental learning together to share an understanding of the latest research on teh value and impact of connections to nature.

    The focus will be on children's connections whilst also recognising the important role that adults have in influencing opportunities for connecting to nature, as well as fostering their own lifelong connection.

    This will be an interactive day, looking at how connections to nature can be facilitated through some practical sessions and discussions on how they can be measured.

    Whilst the value of connections for children is well documented, there is less on how we can measure and assess its impact for the longer term. Key outcomes of the day therefore will be:

    • to identify research opportunities to further develop and enhance how we can measure the impact of connections to nature
    • strengthen links between practitioners and researchers
    • foster a wider understanding and recognition of the importance of connection to the natural world

    This event includes refreshments throughout the day and a lunch. The cost is £25 to cover costs.

    If you would like to attend, please click HERE to complete a booking form. If you wish to be invoiced for £25 please ensure you complete the new customer form available HERE.

    Social Media has changed the way we all communicate. It's a powerful tool that connects us to our members, promotes our events and services and engages us with people we've never had the opportunity to meet. It's fast, it's effective and best of all - it's free.

    Many of us know that harnessing social media is a fantastic way to get our message out in to the ether and start making meaningful and successful connections. With the click of a few buttons new audiences are reached, key decision makers are influenced and new partnerships are developed. Job done!

    And then there's the rest of us...

    There are many barriers to using social media in the workplace - time, confidence, know-how to name a few. The trouble is - these barriers are not going to go away so why not join us on our Social Media training course to learn how to jump over the hurdles and embrace social media for yourself?

    Hosted by Ross McCulloch, Founder of Third Sector Lab & Be Good Be Socialthis interactive & informative workshop cuts through all the hype and jargon, helping you think strategically about social media and how it can work for you. We’ll show you how to develop a simple social media strategy, how you can measure your success and how you can maximise on your message whilst reducing the time you work on it.

    Even if you are currently using social media in your work, this training session will develop knowledge you already have and give you a stack of new ideas to boost your output.

    This is a full-day, training session. You will leave the session with lots of new practical skills to take back into your workplace and you will gain access to resources online to use for a long time to come.

    The session costs £60. Refreshments will be provided throughout the day.

    A more detailed agenda will be available in the very near future.

    Spaces are very limited, so please book your place ASAP. To book your place, please complete the form HERE.

    If you would like further information, or have any queries about this workshop please contact Abi Cornwall, Development Officer.

    UHI Inverness College - 9 week fully funded online course

    Develop your practice, deliver the curriculum

    Connecting Classrooms is offering a new professional learning opportunity for primary and secondary teachers in Scotland to develop their practice in relation to Learning for Sustainability.

    This professional learning initiative by the University of Edinburgh and Learning for Sustainability Scotland in partnership with the British Council, is a timely opportunity for teachers to grapple with what LfS means, what existing and new core skills, values  and knowledge are required, and how this might all look in your school context. The professional learning is fully funded.

    Tailored to your professional learning needs

    Learning for Sustainability is about building the values, core skills, knowledge, and confidence needed to develop practices and take decisions for a sustainable future. It is also a core approach to delivering Curriculum for Excellence, enabling you to build links across subjects through themes such as children’s rights, global citizenship, and learning for a better world.

    What is being offered?

    This programme offers teachers the opportunity to engage and collaborate over a ten week period which includes a day-long participative face to face session at the beginning and at the end of the period, supported by fortnightly inputs from online materials and support from facilitators.

    This professional development opportunity aims to ensure you:

    • Critically consider the nature of teaching and learning within the context of Learning for Sustainability which includes Sustainable Development Education, Outdoor Learning and Global Learning.
    • In the context of the British Council’s Core Skills, reflect critically on developing the skills and dispositions required of teachers and learners related to Learning for Sustainability.
    • Apply in practice, and reflect upon the impact of, principles and practices of and approaches to Learning for Sustainability.
    • Work together towards the development of a Learning for Sustainability professional network for practitioners to support teacher learning and practice in Learning for Sustainability.

     

    Scotland is unique internationally in having a requirement for all teachers and education professionals to address Learning for Sustainability (LfS) in their practice to conform to the General Teaching Council for Scotland (GTCS) Professional Standards

    In addition, the Scottish Government signaled its intent to take a ‘whole school approach’ to LfS by accepting all 31 recommendations of the Ministerial Advisory’s Group ‘Learning for Sustainability Report’.  It also features as a priority in the recently revised Education Scotland ‘How Good Is Our School?’ (2015, HGIOS 4), being the only subject area mentioned in the list of priorities. This makes LfS development in Scotland one of the highest priorities in Scottish Education.

    What is asked of you?

    We will ask you to make a clear commitment to participate throughout the ten week programme.

    Before starting, we recommend you find a learning partner who can offer you support and advice throughout the training course. This could be an existing colleague who you meet with regularly to discuss your progress.

    We will ask you to try out some activities and ideas with your learners during the ten week period and before attending the final session.
