A new kind of societal knowledge creation?
Blekinge Institute of Technology, School of Engineering, Department of Mathematics and Natural Sciences.
2007 (English)In: Von Umgang mit Differenz. Globalisierung and Regionalisierung im interkulturellen Diskurs / [ed] Fichtner, Maria Benites & Bernd, ATHENA-Verlag , 2007, 241-256 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

The chapter outlines some theoretical and practical implications for “joint ventures” by re-thinking learning as an activity-transforming activity. In addition, it presents a “joint-venture” project in some detail. Finally, it briefly explains what it means, as stated in the title, that there might be a new kind of knowledge production that goes beyond individual projects and makes up a societal creation of knowledge. And here higher education is the key. It is suggested that, when suitably organised, university students might form a mighty R&D resource, which is tremendously underestimated today. For example, the students could be organised as parts of research teams, which in turn could participate in joint ventures of interaction research - or in some other way that enables them to make contributions to research, to artefact development and to the development of work activities. In short: manpower intensive research.

Abstract [sv]

I texten argumenterar jag för att generering av kunskap kan ske genom ssystematisk amverkan mellan forskare och högskolestudenter, och att ett sådant arrangemang kan göras positivt för såväl FoU-verksamheten som för den högre utbildningen.
