Togetherness as motivation

Togetherness as motivation - a 21st century skill?

An international conference held in Denmark thursday 24th November 2016. The theme of the conference was: How can togetherness link individual freedom and shared responsibilities, pupil autonomy and societal aims?

The aim of the conference was to present and share both theoretical and practical reflections on the concept of togetherness both from a Danish and an international point of view. How can togetherness be understood and how does it work? Central to the conference are discussions of the value of togetherness as a potential source of motivation raising the question: By developing a sense of togetherness can we realign pupil motivation?

The division aims to enrich the international evidence base on schools and early childhood settings in order to develop targeted policy advice to countries for improving the quality, equity and efficiency of learning opportunities. Key resources are the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) and the Teaching and Learning International Survey (TALIS).

Professor Dr. Thomas Ziehe, Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz University, Hannover

Thomas Ziehe is known for his analyzes of contemporary cultural expression; especially among youth. His work has been extensively used among educators and schools. Thomas Ziehe is regarded as the originator of the concept of the narcissistic youth where he analyzes the opportunities and challenges that are opening up in modern society.
Ziehe sees the increased opportunities for youth today as the cause of a so-called contingency problem: The more options and the more freedom, the greater the experience of a lack of solid ground. In response to this the individual targets four different cultural orientation experiments that the individual can perform to achieve a happy life despite the constant sense of insecurity.

Panel discussion of togetherness as motivation within education

Professor Noemi Katznelson, Professor, Center for Youth Research, Aalborg University

Noemi Katznelson's research is based on a broad sociological view of youth life as it unfolds in light of prevailing social conditions and processes of change. Based on this, she is especially interested in young people in the education system and the gray areas between education and work, but also in other areas of youth life. Noemi Katznelson's research projects include for example young people's motivation and desire for learning and education.

Dr. Ove Korsgaard, Professor of educational theory at DPU, Faculty of Arts, University of Arts, Aarhus University.

Jonas Lieberkind, lektor DPU, Danmarks institut for Pædagogik og Uddannelse

Jonas Lieberkind’s research has contributed to the study of young peoples’ civic and citizenship education and the complex aim of primary and lower secondary schools to prepare students to undertake their roles as democratic citizens. A crucial aim of his study has been to explore and identify the major educational and political tendencies that have emerged in late modernity, and, most importantly, which challenge young people’s political socialisation
