"Teaching and Studying in a Globalized World"
Lecture series of the Center for Teaching and Learning / CTL in cooperation with the OeAD - Austrian Agency for International Cooperation in Education and Research
The friday lectures discuss strategies in higher education on how to prepare students at their “home-university” to meet the challenging demands of globalisation. What kinds of knowledge, skills and attitudes are needed to learn and work in a globalised knowledge society? What are possible social goals of university education in order to advocate global responsibility? Another important focus is on the analyses of the relationships between globalisation, higher education and the labour market from an intersectional gender perspective.
Respondence and Moderation
The thematic connection of the friday lectures to both the state of the international discussion and the requirements of the University of Vienna is ensured by the contributions of experts from other inter/national universities and organisations as well as by the response of scholars and students or student representatives of the University of Vienna. The moderators of the friday lectures – mostly journalists on science, politics and social topics – offer a professional view from outside of university.
"turn it digital"
All contributions to the friday lecture will be published as audio recordings on the website of the Center for Teaching and Learning / CTL. Students and student representatives of the University of Vienna prepare themselves for the friday lectures in the seminar Rethinking Studying: processes to generate knowledge and audiovisual practices They will contribute with responses to the friday lectures, conduct interviews with the lecturers and produce videocasts which will be published on the website of the CTL and on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/ctlcasts) provided that the lectures give their approval.
