Technological literacy and innovation education – Designs for Learning 2014May 5, 2014
I am really looking forward to be spending quality time with inspiring researcher colleagues at the Designs for Learning 2014 conference in Stockholm – 6.-9. maj 2014.
Friday I will be presenting some of my own research on “Technological literacy and innovation education – how new technologies changes and challenges the profession and the professional relationships”.
We look forward to receiving other people’s perspectives on our work. The paper presents research related to our large ongoing professional education development project at University College Zealand (UCSJ) in Denmark. The project is called Welfare Technology, Innovation, Care and Learning (In Danish: Projekt Velfærdsteknologi, Innovation, Omsorg og Læring). It runs from January 2013 December 2014, and includes developing welfare technology related teaching and learning practices in and across eight professional bachelor programs at UCSJ. The project’s ambition is to further develop educational programs in order to better raise students’ “technological literacy” – that is students acquiring “competencies for using, assessing, and innovating new welfare technological solutions in their professional field” (Source: Project application).
