Designing for Situated Knowledge Transformation, Hardback Book

Designing for Situated Knowledge Transformation Hardback

Edited by Nina (University of Southern Denmark) Bonderup Dohn, Stig Borsen Hansen, Jens Jorgen Hansen

Part of the Routledge Research in Education series


How can knowledge developed in one context be put to use in other contexts?

How can students learn to do so? How can educators design for learning this? These are fundamental challenges to many forms of education.

The challenges are amplified in contemporary society where people traverse many different contexts and where contexts themselves are continuously changing.

Designing for Situated Knowledge Transformation provides a structured answer to these questions, through an investigation of the theoretical, empirical, methodological and pedagogical design aspects which they involve.

Raising profound questions about the nature of knowledge, of situativity, and of transfer, transformation and resituation, it calls for and provides extended empirical studies of the forms of transformation that knowledge undergoes when people find themselves in new contexts while relying on existing knowledge.

Considering many avenues of practical application and insight, Designing for Situated Knowledge Transformation develops a coherent framework for developing learning designs for knowledge transformation that is crucial in today's educational settings.
