The seminars are organized by RESET at Tampere University and CRADLE at University of Helsinki. They bring together scholars who use and develop cultural-historical activity theory and formative intervention methods to address acute societal challenges requiring transformations.
The seminars are open to all registered participants through a link sent after registration. Doctoral students are also welcome to attend: attending one seminar (with active participation in the discussion and a reflection written text on the contents and readings of the seminar) corresponds to 1 ECTS. Actively participating doctoral students receive a document as proof of attendance to be shared for obtaining the corresponding credit(s) in the participants’ own universities.
This academic year the seminars in November and in February are funded by the Global Innovation Network for Teaching and Learning (GINTL) for collaboration with China, and the seminar in April is funded by the GINTL for collaboration with Africa. The latter complements the 2-day seminar held in June 2022 “Implementing and Developing Change Laboratories: Lessons from Africa” also funded by GINTL Africa in collaboration with the Professional Education Research Institute, Cape Peninsula University of Technology, South Africa.
