Human-Animal Studies in didactic and pedagogic contexts
SE 2
every 2nd year

A deepened understanding of the academic field of the human-animal studies, teaching competences for this discipline in various educational contexts such as schools, nonformal settings (e.g. youth work) and adult education.

The human-animal relationship as a complex phenomenon increasingly attracts interest in the academic field, not only in the natural sciences but notably in the arts, humanities and social sciences. The human-animal studies analyse the human-animal relationship in an interdisciplinary and critical way. They thereby connect society and science and provide possibilities for knowledge transfer and social change.

In this course we will develop possible options on how to approach topics like the various human-animal relationships in the classroom and other educational contexts.

The participants develop teaching concepts which are presented and discussed in the seminar. Teachers and pedagogues will support the process as coaches.

A term paper based on the student’s presentation and shared reflection in the seminar.

Attendence of the lecture series „Human-Animal Studies – Critical Perspectives on Human-Animal Relationships“. If you couldn’t attend to this lecture series please send us a detailed summary of the principles of the Human-Animal Studies (3-5 pages) by 31 March 2015. You will find the therefore needed material on OLAT (for registration please contact: gabriela.kompatscher@uibk.ac.at).

The seminar mainly addresses students training to become teachers or educators in other pedagogic fields as well as students of educational science. Concerning the administrative recognition of the seminar within the particular discipline/course please refer to your course administrator.
