Education for Sustainable Development: The Role of Ethical Argumentation
Instructors: 
Dr. Uta Müller

(Tübingen),

Dr. Simon Meisch (Tübingen)

We are confronted by ethical reasoning in all sorts of concrete societal discourses, such as the debate concerning sustainable development. As Education for Sustainable Development is a compulsory part of basic education in Germany, it is our aim to equip future teachers with core knowledge and professional abilities for their future work. Ethical arguments consistute the basis of evaluating actions and assigning responsibility. They can help answer the question of what we should do in order to ensure that as many people as possible can lead good and autonomous lives – today and in the future. For this reason, it is important to be able to recognize ethical reasoning and respond to it. In this introductory seminar course (Proseminar), we will discuss the main theoretical approaches to ethics, such as philosophy of happiness, deontological ethics, utilitarian ethics, and  moral relativism. In selected sessions, the various theoretical approaches will be applied to concrete current examples from the discourse surrounding sustainable development. The goal of the seminar is to provide an overview over the various approaches to ethics, to become familiar with ethics terms and types of ethical reasoning. In the last part of the course we will focus on educational settings: We will analyse, create and discuss teaching material on sustainable development under special consideration of their implicit and explicit ethical argumentation, and learn to develop and evaluate concrete ethical issues in educational settings.

La médiation est une compétence indispensable pour que nos élèves sachent communiquer et agir dans des situations communicatives de la vie réelle. L’importance est également reconnue par le Bildungsplan de
2016 et par les réformes du baccalauréat.
Dans ce séminaire, après avoir étudié les bases théoriques afin de comprendre la complexité et le fonctionnement de cette compétence, nous analyserons et essaierons nous-mêmes différentes méthodes permettant à l’enseignant de pratiquer cette compétence, tout en tenant compte du niveau des apprenants en question ainsi que des sources différentes qui sont à la base de la médiation. Nous découvrirons également différents moyens d’évaluer cette compétence.
Par la suite, tout en tenant compte des principes méthodologiques, les étudiants élaboreront dans de petits groupes des activités de médiation (= des tâches). En fin de cours, les étudiants présenteront leur tâche.
