The Role of Science in a New Science IEnvironmentI Health Pedagogy

Chairperson: Prof. Dr. med. A. Zeyer and Prof. Dr. Kerstin Kremer

Time: 9.00 – 13.00

Location: DCU – Gallery

This interactive workshop calls on researchers and practitioners interested in Science IEnvironmentI Health pedagogy. The focus will be on the role of science in the mutual relation between the three educational fields of science, environment, and health/medicine. Often, in health and environmental education, scientific issues only play a peripheral role. The Science IEnvironmentI Health pedagogy understands its role in emphasizing the critical role of science in the mutual benefit of the three fields. Health/Medicine and environmental issues are seen through the lens of science and science education. In this context, participants will determine research priorities, discuss teaching and teacher education strategies, identify funding sources and publication venues, propose innovative methods for studying Science IEnvironmentI Health issues and pedagogies, and establish potential collaborations. In order to foster participants’ reception, promotion and acquaintance with current SIG work, salient publications of SIG members will be the basis for group work, presentations and discussion. The target audience includes all professionals whose work touches upon environmental and health aspects of science. The workshop discussion notes will provide foundation for the next intermediate SIG 4 conference in Kiel, Germany, and a related book project. Goal: The goal of this interactive workshop is to call on researchers interested in Science IEnvironmentI Health to determine research priorities, debate teaching and teacher education strategies, identify funding sources and publication venues, propose innovative methods for studying Science IEnvironmentI Health issues and pedagogies, and establish potential collaborations. The workshop is organized by the Special Interest Group Nr. 4, Science IEnvironmentI Health. The target audience includes all professionals whose work touches upon environmental and health aspects of science. The workshop discussion notes will also provide foundation for a SIG-authored white paper.
