An AURA mini-fieldtrip organized by Maria Dahm and Heather Swanson, Monday, April 7, 2014
|Date||Mon 07 Apr|
|Time||12:40 — 21:00|
As curiosity is one of the key concepts for the AURA project, this fieldtrip aims to explore curiosity-in-action at the Randers Rainforest, a science education facility located about 30 minutes by car from Aarhus. We will receive a tour of the rainforest, while also learning about its pedagogical practices from its staff.
During our time at the rainforest and over dinner afterward, we’ll explore relations among curiosity, noticing, and imagination in science education. We’ve listed some of our questions below in order to get us all thinking. We hope to pay special attention to questions of genre.
