FEDORA has just produced three pocket-size documents that summarise the research work done by its 3 first work packages, working in Interdisciplinarity, New languages and Futurisation.
Two frameworks were developed, representing the underlying principles of the work done for New Languages and Futures' education.
The first main action, led by the University of Oxford, will generate recommendations for producing policy briefs. We will extensively use a Delphi methodology throughout its tasks to assess policy makers’ attitudes and arrive at a general consensus based on their understanding of needs in light of the input about the findings from the first work packages of the project. The recommendations will be further discussed with the RRI community through interviews and research and education institutions representatives in the dissemination activities. The second main action, led by Kaunas University of Technology, concerns the analysis of the RRI frameworks and aims to revise the MoRRI indicators.
This policy brief draws on the first progressive reports elaborated during the first half of the project by WP1, WP2 and WP3. They inform about the preliminary approach to address the alignment of science teaching/learning in formal contexts, the exploration of new languages, narratives and arts and the futurisation of science education.
The recommendations are divided into three types: Institutional, Teaching & Learning and Curriculum recommendations. These findings will be revised on the basis of the results of the Delphi study.
The key points of each recommendation are the following:
Institutional: To foster interdisciplinarity, institutions should consider:
Teaching & Learning: To enhance and support schools and teachers to explore new collaborations with artists and creative professionals, teaching and learning practices should capitalise on:
To enhance curriculum content, national curricula should provide opportunities for integrating futures-thinking in school subjects and programs by:
