Workshop # 1:

I am serious, let’s play! How to teach and learn future skills for the 21st century.

This workshop explores best practices from an interdisciplinary University course and insights from innovation, improvisation, and creativity research. Facing 21st century challenges, we need students and teachers in every field to learn certain skills: being open minded, thinking critically, acting responsibly, finding sustainable solutions, re-thinking problems, thinking out of the box, engaging, cooperating, being both empathic and self-effective. This workshop wants to inspire, give space to explore, and provide you with hands-on methods for your own teaching (and learning) in a playful manner.

Workshop # 2:

Art and Research-Led Teaching. A Workshop on Artistic Research and Education for Everyone

This workshop focuses on innovative didactic formats, interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary bridging, new technological tools, employability, as well as qualification profiles for professions that do not yet exist. As part of two fairly large thematic block sessions, this workshop will explore what kind of artistic research can contribute to better understanding the topic and creating courses. Can research-led education supplemented by an almost infinite repertoire of artistic work methods help us to rethink prerequisites? Perhaps it would be better to talk about artistic research-led education to lay the groundwork and help new things become possible?

Workshop # 3:

Einführung in die Entwicklung agiler, kompetenzorientierter Lerndesigns

In diesem selbstgesteuerten Online-Kurs werden Sie in die Grundlagen der Entwicklung agiler, kompetenzorientierter Lerndesigns eingeführt. Mit Hilfe eines interaktiven Skriptums und verschiedener Aufgaben mit formativem Feedback, die im interaktiven Skriptum angeregt werden, können Sie Ihr Verständnis prüfen und sich mit KollegInnen austauschen. Im Online-Kurs reflektieren Sie, inwieweit die agile, kompetenzorientierte Lerndesignentwicklung in Ihrer Lehre (bewusst oder unbewusst) bereits Anwendung findet und welche Teile des Ansatzes für Ihren Lehrkontext geeignet sind. Sie diskutieren mit KollegInnen Lernergebnisse im Spannungsfeld zwischen „Plandidaktik“ und agiler Planung und bekommen die Chance, Lernergebnisse kriteriengeleitet zu formulieren, die eine echte didaktische Funktion im Lerndesign einnehmen und nicht nur lästiges „Muss“ für den Syllabus sind. Dabei lernen Sie, Lernergebnisse als „Enabler“ für Ihr kompetenzorientiertes Lerndesign zu nutzen.
