ABOUT THE COURSE:
Sustainable development is a national and international interdisciplinary research field and policy area that includes not only sustainable development (in all its perspectives) as subject content and as complex problems (wicked problems), but also pedagogical and didactic principles (ESD, social learning, transformative learning), learning environments, sustainability competencies and social transformation.
Implementation science is a new and expanding field of research that focuses on how evidence can be translated into practice. The subject studies strategies and approaches for translating knowledge into application, so-called 'Knowledge translation'. For this to happen, changed attitudes are required and that the 'way we do things' is challenged. One area where implementation research is in focus is sustainable development as it is largely a matter of changing habits and patterns and using evidence and experience to do so.
The course is a continuation of Implementation Science and Sustainable Development I and the first part consists of a method and design course that aims to give the student tools to translate theory into practice. The second part of the course focuses on leadership and leadership.
