EdTech Professor Norm Friesen has received funding from the German Academic Exchange Service to spend the month of May undertaking translation and other knowledge exchange activities in Germany.
Based at Humboldt University of Berlin, Friesen will present lectures and workshops in other locations as well.
He has been invited to present a Lietz-Lecture in Education and Culture at Friedrich Schiller University in Jena, and will give a keynote address and host a workshop at a conference (Education is Relation not Output—Scenes of Knowledge and Knowledge Acquisition) at Linneaus University in nearby Växjö, Sweden. The title of the keynote address is: Education Reform and Educational Media, and the workshop will focus on Pedagogical Picture Interpretation in an Image-Saturated Culture.
Friesen will also complete the translation of a book that introduces an internationally-renowned German educational theorist to English language readers. It is titled Existentialism and Education: An Introduction to Otto Friedrich Bollnow.
