The 2022 LAHC Annual Conference will take place in Punta del Este from October 19th to 21st.
Educating for Humanity
Major global events and trends in recent years have raised many questions about both the purpose of education and the way in which it takes place. The COVID-19 pandemic, together with increasing geopolitical tensions, widespread acknowledgement of ingrained inequities and injustices in society, and a failure to make an impact on global warming, to name a few, have highlighted an urgent need to broaden the scope of education beyond academics and give central importance to individual and collective wellbeing. At the same time, the seismic pedagogical transformation sparked by the need to take teaching and learning into a remote, online world has opened up a wealth of opportunities which can help us reimagine the educational process even on a return to face to face teaching and learning.
The LAHC Annual Conference 2022 will address two key themes - Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, and Environmental Education - through the lens of an enriched pedagogy that recognises and applies what has been learned during the pandemic.
