    Join us on August 3rd, when we restart our Centre for Research on Learning and Innovation (CRLI) Wednesday seminars for semester 2, with a presentation by Associate Professor Nina Bonderup Dohn; "Designing for transformation of situated knowledge.

    Nina-267.jpgNina will present on her and her colleagues’ current project, Designing for Situated Knowledge in a World of Change, supported by the Danish Council for Independent Research. Today's world is characterized by diversity, frequent change, and globalization, which requires people to traverse a range of different settings and to often use knowledge, learnt in one setting, in new contexts. But research in practice theory and situated learning has shown that knowledge is situated, i.e. acquires form and content from the context in which it is learnt. In this talk, Nina will focus on philosophical and design theoretical aspects of this challenge, discussing:
    :: What is involved in transforming knowledge from one context to another?
    :: Is it possible to design learning opportunities for others to support them in learning to transform knowledge across contexts?
    :: If yes, what would be design principles for such learning opportunities?

    Nina Bonderup Dohn is an Associate Professor in Humanistic Information Science at the Department of Design and Communication, University of Southern Denmark.
