The objective for this phase of the Circular Skills program focuses on the professional development of the teacher in relation to environment and didactics. The solicitation states that teacher development should focus on two areas:
- The close collaboration with the environment and how to facilitate this as a teacher
- Development in the field of new forms of knowledge transfer and instruction.
Windesheim University of Applied Sciences - Community Of Practice
Following the above goals and contact with members of the SDG impact LAB Windesheim, we have chosen to collaborate with the Hogeschool Windesheim in Zwolle. Through the LAB's contacts, in April 2021, we held exploratory talks with several people from various disciplines/educations to raise awareness of the Circular Skills program and ask out needs.
Based on these discussions, we got in touch with the Community Of Practice (COP). The COP consists of different disciplines from the Engineering domain, namely; mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, technical business & logistics engineering and industrial product design. Together they are developing the minor "sustainable technology" in which the ambition is to integrate sustainability and circular skills into the assignments of the minor. This ambition has in advance the challenge in the complexity of interdisciplinary collaboration from the different content needs of the separate disciplines in designing the minor.
Developing the minor
After exploratory discussions with the mechanical engineering team leader, a teacher with sustainability portfolio and the COP lead, the need for support on this development process was identified. The request to O3-effect was: Supervise a number of development meetings of the COP in which to work on the development of the new minor. The guidance should focus on:
