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.
