Abstract

Abstract title

Online Sources for Translating Anthropology into Teacher Education - Insights and Outcomes from a European educational anthropological research project

Abstract text

Teacher education is a sphere crucial for framing future generations of teachers, citizens and thus society as a whole. There is a pronounced diversity of how teacher education is structured in different European countries, especially with regards to ways in which anthropological knowledge is (not) part of the teacher education curricula and subjects. In our paper we will present a multilingual (English, German, Danish, Greek, Croatian) and multimodal online project platform we designed together with teachers with the aim to accommodate the diversity and particularities of teacher education in Europe (focus: Northern, Central and Southeastern Europe). The paper will present two core and interrelated modes of knowledge part of the online platform (a Concept Book to make anthropological concepts and perspectives accessible to teacher educators, teachers and pedagogues alike and a Whiteboard Animation on the topic "Worldmaking") by focusing on their development together with teachers and their subsequent evaluation by teachers of different profiles (with and without anthropological training). The paper will offer the opportunity to discuss digital accessibility of anthropological knowledge across two different modes of knowledge transmission - text/concepts and whiteboard animation.
