Interloc Transdisciplinary Learning & Book Lauch
Alongside the rising status of interdisciplinarity as a learning experience across disciplines, transdisciplinary research alliances at the crossroads between science and society have rapidly grown in importance. Increasingly, knowledge resources which are cultivated beyond universities, such as practical knowledge, vocational knowledge, indigenous etc. are being incorporated into university research practices.
What does this transition imply for academic teaching and learning? Which educational perspectives emerge from it? How do we overcome still existing barriers? On the occasion of the publication of Handbook Transdisciplinary Learning, TU Berlin invites international experts, students, and teachers to exchange their experiences. The conference will focus on a critical appraisal of transdisciplinary education methods and evaluate their potential for future forms of cooperation between science and society.
Panelists include Sonia Massari (University of Pisa), Alhassan Yakubu (Agder University of Kristiansand), Gamel Sankarl (University of Accra), Juliette Cortes-Arevalo (TU Delft), Jimlea Mendoza (Cà Foscari University of Venice), Ulli Vilsmaier (Responsive Research Collective), Ines Langemeyer (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology), and many others.
