Project Management Meeting - Stockholm
On Thursday June 1st and Friday June 2nd, TEC partners Aislinn O’Donnell (Ireland), Lovisa Bergdahl (Sweden), Patricia Kieran (Ireland), Stephanos Cherouvis (Greece) and Elisabet Langmann (Sweden) met in Stockholm, to engage in a collaborative review of the methodologies and approaches presented in the Swedish and Irish Induction Training Schools 2017. The Induction School in Sweden took place at Södertörn University, based in Stockholm. Södertörn University offers profiled courses and programmes in the Humanities, Social Sciences, Natural Sciences and Technology. A number of the university's programmes are multidisciplinary and include subject combinations that cross traditional subject boundaries. A great deal of Södertörn University research is in the fields of religion, culture, migration and integration. In 2015 and 2016, special funding from the vice-chancellor was announced as a means of boosting research, innovation projects, and seminars linked to the reception of refugees. This investment allows Södertörn University to use knowledge to influence and bring change, helping us understand how to build sustainable societies for a diversity of people.
At this Stockholm meeting the TEC partners engaged in a detailed outline and analysis of TEC’s conceptual and methodological framework.
While at Sodertorn University the group engaged in detailed planning for the first TEC Summer School. They drew up the Summer School programme and selected dialogical, lived values, arts and philosophical enquiry based methodologies appropriate to the key themes and content of the Summer School in Marathon, Greece. TEC Summer School takes place from July 9th to the 14th, 2017.
