Active Citizenship as Habitus for Teaching – an Utopia?

Doreen Cerny

To recognize and interrogate social responsibilities professionally verges an ideal which recurs in the history of pedagogy. For this reason the workshop deals with a classic question and an major element in the learning culture at Salzburg University of Education Stefan Zweig. Different traditional lines of ACTIVE CITIZENSHIP will be presented in front of the mirror of history. In a second step essential characteristics of the concept will be explained and proffered for discussion with the participants:
• Which experiences do the participants of the workshop have with the theme of social responsibility in professional fields?
• How can one come from Citizenship Thinking to Citizenship Doing and which actors are involved?
• Why is active citizenship a current topic for teacher education?
• Finally: How much utopia needs an attitude which is oriented on active citizenship?

The Global Education Monitoring Report 2016 monitors progress in education within the new sustainable development goals (SDGs) framework adopted by the UN-General Assembly in 2015. Goal 4 which commits all countries to “ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all“. It advocates, among others, the promotion of global citizenship education and education for sustainable development. We will discuss the report’s main conclusions and recommendations on three different aspects:
• Globalisation can be seen as a threat. How do sustainable development goals, especially SDG4, help to improve globalizing societies?
• How can individuals be supported by taking responsibility for society?
• Global citizenship as a means of taking responsibility for society?

Migration and Exile

Manfred Oberlechner · Robert Obermair · Patrick Duval (Université de Lorraine, F)

Following a conference in Salzburg in May 2016 and a subsequent conference in Metz/Strasbourg in December 2016 this workshop will discuss current approaches to research concerning migration and exile. We will show examples of concrete research in the field, focussing on these three questions: How can „exile“ be taught? In which way can exiles be taught? How are exiles influenced in their teaching by experiences of exile? Our approach is a multi-perspective one, including pedagogical, sociological, socio-psychological, historical, literary, linguistic and artistic aspects.
