Designs for transformation of situated knowledge

2 August 2017

A Centre for Research on Learning and Innovation seminar.

The discussion about the transfer of knowledge and learning seems to be ongoing and without any conclusion as to what "transfer" is, when or how it occurs. Since the late 1980s, research into "transfer and learning" has focused on how identity, situatedness, affordances of resources and crossing between sites of learning have a mutual impact on the nature of how and what is being transferred or transformed. In this talk, Danish guest speaker Roland Hachmann will present an overview and perspectives from a preliminary analysis of the data from his ongoing PhD research, for which he is investigating how students engaged in a teacher-education program transfer and transform situated knowledge between contexts of education and practice, and how educational designs can support these processes. For six months Roland has been following students participating in a course where specific design principles for transformation were developed and investigated through a design-based research approach.

  • Speaker: Roland Hachmann is a senior lecturer in the field of ICT and learning at University College South Denmark associated with the Centre of Excellence for General Education and PhD student at the University of Southern Denmark affiliated with the Institute for Design and Communication. His PhD project is an empirical study which is part of a larger national research project called "Designing for Situated Knowledge in a World of Change", directed by Dr Nina Bonderup Dohn. The project aims to develop contributions, both philosophical and pragmatic for the development of new theoretical assumption for designs for learning, that support transformation of knowledge.
