Societal learnings in the real-world laboratory: Transdisciplinary searches using the example of the participatory students project in:takt
Keywords:transformation, real-world laboratory, higher education, societal learning, technology assessment
Real-world laboratories are receiving increasing public attention and have established themselves as a relevant research format in technology assessment. They appear particularly suited to address current challenges through social learning. However, references to educational implications have remained largely unexplored theoretically to date. Against this background, we consider learning processes in real- world laboratories in terms of their contribution to social learning. To this end, starting from critical education theory, the article reconstructs three dimensions of learning in the real-world laboratory using the Magdeburg student project in:takt as a case study. As a result, learning processes in real-world laboratories prove to be an experimental and spatial appropriation of the world that contributes to overcoming societal challenges.
