Symposium “Theory and Practice: Global Learning in Excursions in the Context of South-North School Partnerships”

In German


Theory and Practice: Global Learning in Excursions
in the Context of South-North School Partnerships

02.-03. May 2016
in Kassel, CVJM-Conference House

International school exchanges with partners from countries in the Global South have gained importance over the last few years. But how can school exchanges in the context of South-North school partnerships become places of Global Learning? Which opportunities and difficulties does the particular learning setting of school North-South exchanges offer? Answers to these questions about theory and practice shall be discussed during the symposium.

After the good feedback on our Call for Participation and numerous submissions we are now working with our cooperating partners on finalising the programme. The registration form for our symposium will soon be available on this website.

What is particular about a „Theory and Practice Symposium“?
A Theory and Practice Symposium aims to connect theoretical and practical perspectives. Practitioners shall have the opportunity to reflect their work, academics and funding organisations shall get to know the demands of the practice. Hence, a Theory and Practice Symposium is far more than a network meeting of a certain „scene“ (here: people that organise or fund excursions in the context of school partnerships), but it has the goal to reflect its experiences in the light of theoretical perspectives – in this case those of „Global Learning“.

Why a „Call for Participation“?
With our Call for Participation“ we enable every contributor an active, costless participation. The guidelines facilitate the preparation process and shall provide information and support for the contributors to focus their submission on the subject of the symposium.

Support circle
The symposium is conceptualised and implemented with support of our cooperating partners, that are also responsable for the selection of the submissions. In our support circle all relevant stakeholders are represented: represtantives of NGOs, an academical and a funding perspective and representatives of the Global South.

Participation fee
The participation fee for regular participants without a submission is 60,00 €, for students, unemployed and freelancers with a meagre income 40,00 €. The costs include all fees for the symposium, the accomodation and catering.
