Session 3

This course takes departure in Scandinavian care, pedagogy, and teaching methods with a practicum immersion experience. By drawing on relevant research related to children, childhood, learning, and well-being, you gain insight into the challenges and possibilities present when growing up in a social welfare society. This knowledge is translated to engage with children to understand Danish pedagogy in a hands-on context. This class investigates topics such as: relationships between professionals and children, nature, achievement, bullying, gender, play and learning, and sex education.
