BE-SIG Webinar: Technology Enhanced Responsible Management Education
11 May @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am AESTFree
Singapore/Hong Kong 8am | Auckland 12pm | Other time zones
Webinar jointly co-hosted by ASCILITE Business Education SIG, PRME ANZ Chapter and ABEN Ethics Education SIG
Presented by Assoc Prof Harsh Suri & Mr Vivek Venkiteswaran (Deakin University) along with Assoc Prof Christian Schott (Victoria University Wellington)
This presentation will commence with Harsh and Vivek who will discuss how TPCK framework (Mishra & Koehler, 2006) offers a useful theoretical lens for harnessing the power of digitalization for scaffolding meaningful integration of SDGs into mainstream business curricula. TPCK framework is commonly used in educational technology to adopt a holistic, nuanced and context-sensitive approach for integrating technology, pedagogy and content knowledge to achieve deep transformational learning. We will discuss how SDGs should become a pervasive context within which we transform Business Education using affordances of digitalization.
Next, Christian will discuss why he sees a place, and indeed a need for technology, to support education for sustainability and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). His presentation will promote experiential education as a key pedagogy for a VUCA world and make the case that situating learning in its appropriate geographical, cultural and social context is an important ingredient. Utilising gaming software and digital immersion technology Christian and his team have developed two sustainability-focused learning tools, one ‘taking’ students to an island in Fiji and the other to Machu Picchu Pueblo in Peru. Although the latter was developed for Secondary schools it will be used as an example during the presentation.
