The conference theme is

Global and local tensions. Challenges for Teaching and Learning in Curriculum Subject Studies

Globala och lokala spänningar. Utmaningar för ämnesdidaktik

 

The conference theme of Nofa7 focuses on global and local tensions which include possibilities and challenges such as immigration, multiculturalism, language debates and environmental problems. These topics concern teaching and learning in all school subjects and all levels of education, from compulsory education, to secondary and higher education.

The topics raise questions such as how do we make use of these possibilities and resources, and how do we meet these challenges and problems? What do they mean and how are they addressed in the local contexts of the various Nordic countries, both at the national and regional level? What are the implications for research?
