Higher Education: University Teaching & Research
Compared to all other forms of education, the specific feature of Higher Education is its interrelationship with research: In academic education, learning subjects and forms of teaching are geared to scientific knowledge production and are based on the current state of scientific discussion.
However, science is currently undergoing a fundamental transformation process under the conditions of digitality, medialisation and the reorganisation of disciplinary structures. The New Production of Knowledge
(Gibbons et al., 1994) is accompanied by new forms of science and thus also of Higher Education.
New scholarly learning settings outside the institutional boundaries of the university emerge, such as FabLabs, Service Learning, Augmented Reality or Citizen Science. In turn, these new forms of transdisciplinary teaching and learning
have a specific impact on research.
The series is a forum to exchange views on current influencing factors, framework conditions and implementations of university education in the 21st century.
