Is academia becoming interdisciplinary? Or do disciplines still condition our research and teaching in profound ways? Is disciplinarity perhaps even an inherent operative mode of modern academia? If so, how and to what extent should our institutions provide for interdisciplinarity?
InterMedia invites to the seminar "Learning with and through representations – moving between the concrete and abstract! with professor Wolff-Michael Roth University of Victoria, British Columbia.
Curriculum, as distinct from the narrower term learning, is concerned with forming the person (values, dispositions, social relationships) as well as building capacities, abilities, achievements. In the past half-century global developments have significantly influenced national and regional curriculum activities on both fronts: by Millennial Goals and projects related to a ‘global citizen’; and by the pervasive influence of OECD-led assessments and rankings as authoritative measures of what is being achieved. At the same time, recent curriculum reforms in different countries suggest tensions in the resulting reforms: for example, a concern to build stronger national identifications in the context of global pressures; and a desire for new global ‘21st century skills’ coming up against audit culture conservative testing regimes, and the problem of what are the real foundations for knowledge today. The lecture will illustrate the tensions outlined by reference to the new national curriculum framework being developed in Australia
In this lecture Lyn Yates will discuss changing agendas of curriculum research over the last half century, and some of the theories and social movements that have been particularly influential over that time. She will give particular attention to the ways they have formed or challenges assumptions about knowledge and curriculum.
InterMedia invites to a talk by visiting professor David Diez, on interaction technologies, emergency management and civil protection.

Professor Kerstin Sahlin will give a presentation on two recent and interrelated global themes that permeate and reshape the global university landscape; the dramatic expansion of rankings and the reshaping of universities into organizational actors.
The research group for Curriculum Studies, Educational Leadership and Governance (CLEG) is proud to present an open seminar with Professor Gordon Stobart from Institute of Education in London.
The seminar will address how to conceptualise the organisation of student interests in cross-European perspective and explore the question of ‘institutional change’ in representative student organisations.
The CHANGE research group is happy to announce two talks by our guest researchers Jim Slotta, University of Toronto and Andreas Gegenfürther, University of Turku.
Linked to a NRC-funded Utd2020 pre-project on learning outcomes ”Learning about Quality” (LEAQ) , the research group HEIK (Higher Education: Institutional dynamics and knowledge cultures) is arranging a seminar linked to the topic.
The research group CHANGE and InterMedia invites to an open lecture with dr. Masanori Sugimoto, Interaction Technology Laboratory, University of Tokyo.
What does professional responsibility entail in an increasingly insecure, unpredictable and de-regulated world?
The FALK and CHANGE research groups invites to an open lecture with Professor Stephen Billett, Griffith University, Australia
The symposium presents research that explores learning across school-museum boundaries, and reflects on the implications of 'semi-formal' learning research for teacher education.
The seminar presents work in progress by Nordic experts on ICT and learning.
Digital representations and technologies that create new arenas for social interactions are some of the ‘design tools’ explored as means to support learning and meaning making across sites. The InterMedia Research Seminar "Designing Bridges" presents current work by leading international experts on the conceptualization and design of learning activities and technologies in schools and museums.
