Abstract

Interdisplinary learning units with focuses on science and environment can help learners develop critical thinking skills and act in responsible ways. This project will focus on concepts and action competence as the crucial elements for the complex interdisciplinary issues that involve the environmental and scientific aspects of the society. The project will work on the construction of a framework to support the development of learning units with reference to contemporary societal issues and closely related to the local school curriculum. Emphasis will be put on developing integrated units (focusing on the 4 dimensions of Effects, Causes, Change and Visions) that empower learners who are in our teacher education or education-plus progammes to promote critical thinking, democratic processes and action-oriented knowledge.
