"Building an Ethical Learning Community in Swedish Schools: Bridging School Practice and Educational Research"
Presented by Ulrika Bergmark, Assistant Professor, Department of Arts, Communication and Education, Luleå University of Technology, Sweden; and Visiting Scholar, Education Policy Studies, Penn State (Fall 2011)
This presentation explores school practice and educational research within a reform process, Full of Value, in a school area in Northern Sweden (pre-schools and grades 1-9). The initiative started in 2006 with the goal of promoting learning through the development of an ethical attitude, involving the psycho-social and the physical environment of the schools. Many of the activities within Full of Value have been carried out in cooperation between the participating school districts and the local university, including instructional aid and research within grades 7-9. The research presented herein emanates from the dissertation “Building an Ethical Learning Community in Schools” (Bergmark, 2009).
In conjunction with International Education Student Association (IESA), Education Policy Studies Student Association (EPSSA) will be sponsoring this event.
