Plenary sessions

How glaciers became an endangered part of the biosphere?

Krzysztof Zawierucha, Ph.D,

Glaciation accompanied our human ancestors throughout the Pleistocene and it is considered a major factor that triggered human evolution. For years glaciers have been considered as unproductive and mostly lifeless systems, which influence only climate and are sources of freshwater. Now, it is widely accepted that glaciers and ice sheets comprise unique habitats that host unique organisms and metabolically active populations. Despite the permanently harsh conditions of glacier/snow habitats, they support a remarkable diversity of life ranging from single‐cell microbes (e.g., Archae, algae, bacteria, fungi, ciliates) to sophisticated animals. Regrettably, glacier biome disappears, along with unique ecosystems and organisms. Therefore, it is timely and important that we should investigate the glacial dynamics, ecology, and biological diversity. We cannot forget that the recognition of our planet is a characteristic of natural Homo sapiens curiosity, thus the expansion of our knowledge base. We should learn about glacial organisms, their role in the biosphere, and biotechnological potential before they will be lost.

  • Krzysztof Zawierucha works at the Department of Animal Taxonomy and Ecology at Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznań, Poland. He is keen on polar and high mountain regions, especially he is interested in biodiversity and biological processes of glaciers and ice sheets. Krzysztof is an author and co-author of more than 50 scientific papers published in international journals, a leader of projects related to biodiversity and ecology of the surface of glaciers. Within the international cooperation frameworks and his own scientific projects, he conducted researches on Spitsbergen, Greenland, the Alps, Norway, and Iceland. Science popularizer, laureate of FameLab. More info …

Workshop sessions

Wednesday, 30th September,

Thursday, 1st October

eTwinning tools and TwinSpace: How to communicate and disseminate online (These are obligatory workshops scheduled at 2 levels of advancement - for details, check the agenda above.)

PL NSS, Marcin Hościłowicz - PL eTw Ambassador

eTwinning tools: eTwinning LIVE platform offers a unique environment for networking and international collaboration. It is a place where teachers can set up eTwinning partnerships and exchange resources and school practice. The workshop guides participants through its main features and tools including eTwinning profile, forum, search engines and communication tools.

TwinSpace: How to communicate and disseminate online: TwinSpace is an online place which allows teachers to communicate in an e-safe mode. Moreover, it facilitates the process of implementation and dissemination of project activities. During this session, teachers will learn how to use TwinSpace’s tools to run a desired project.

 

Oxford-Style Debate method for climate change topic

Martyna Dominiak-Świgoń

Probably Chinese philosopher Confucius said: "Tell me and I forget, teach me and I remember, involve me and I learn". One of the effective methods that involves students is a debate. Also to understand climate change, it is necessary to discuss it. Participants of the seminar will learn about the Oxford-style Debate method. They will receive tips on how to organize a debate at school, how to involve students in organizing and participating in the event. The Oxford-Style Debate can be a great, important adventure for the whole class.

  • Martyna Dominiak-Świgoń. Doctoral student at the Faculty of Biology of Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań, ecologist, popularizer of science. Martyna completed training in tutoring and leadership in education. Currently, she works at Poznań Supercomputing and Networking Centre as a specialist for educational platforms. In education, she focuses on STEAM, where she can combine science with technology and other areas. During COVID-19 outbreak, she ran an eTwinning webinar for teachers: “STEAM and climate change - Can fungi save us from climate change?”.

 

STEAM and climate change in practice,

Tomasz Ordza, eTwinning PL ambassador in cooperation with Helena Pires from Portugal, Seda Göçhan from Turkey

The workshop will present selected applications and ideas for their practical application in eTwinning projects. The presenters will present proven methods and ideas for the implementation of environmental and climate education issues based on eTwinning projects. During the meeting, attention will be paid to interdisciplinary issues in teaching and dissemination of good practices.

  • Tomasz Ordza. A teacher of biology and chemistry at Kazimierz Nowak Primary School in Dąbrówka (Poland), where he also serves as a deputy principal. A co-organiser of numerous eTwinning projects, as well as synergies between eTwinning and Erasmus+.  An ambassador of the eTwinning programme. The originator of the interdisciplinary "Science - I like it!" competition, as well as an initiator of numerous outdoor workshops for students, as well as meetings of pupils and scientists. He co-managed the module "Interdisciplinary research projects at school" for students of the Faculty of Biology of Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań. He cooperates with the magazine "Biology at School", to which he writes articles on school practice and STEAM projects. He belongs to the group "Superbelfrzy RP". He loves forest, mountains, cycling, Szymborska's poetry and traveling.
