ITA Seminars

Inter- and transdisciplinary Seminars “ITA”

We offer a one to two-day seminar to work on Interdisciplinary and Transdisciplinary in Action. The ITA Seminars form part of an overall effort to expand our understanding of theoretical foundations and the praxis of inter- and transdisciplinarity by experiencing collaborative tasks in inter- and/or transdisciplinary teams.  The Seminars provide space for mutual learning and to reflect collaborative action. 

In all ITA Seminars, we provide an overview on current discourses on inter- and transdisciplinarity, as well as on methodologies for inter- and transdisciplinary research. Working with researchers, we experiment with methods of boundary work and integration, and provide guidance for researchers working in or planning to work in inter- or transdisciplinary research team constellation. The edu_ITA Seminar is a variation designed to support lecturers or developers of study programs. According to the particluar needs, it either offers an overview of learning formats in multidisciplinary teams, about Inter- and Transdisciplinarity and through inter- and transdisciplinary research based learning, or aims at examining possible pathways to transforming disciplinary and multidisciplinary courses or study programs into inter- or transdisciplinary learning environments. 

Past ITA Seminar experiences have shown the high value of making different understandings visible and share the different ways inter- and transdisciplinarity are defined and put into practice, either with or between teams and institutions.
