Article
Full-text available
In this paper, we attempt to show some consequences of bringing the body back into higher education, through the use of performing arts in the curricular context of scientific programs. We start by arguing that dominant traditions in higher education reproduced the mind-body dualism that shaped the social matrix of meanings on knowledge transmissio...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The ASCOPET project studies the performing arts as a pedagogical tool in Higher Education. At EPFL, the practice of improvisation and the creation of a collective performance presented on the stage of the Arsenic theatre, allow to work on the imagination and the expression of ideas in engineering design. It leads to revisiting the collective work,...

This paper focuses on the learning processes of students involved in a pedagogical design bridging in-class and out-of-class activities. As academic teachers–researchers, we designed a semester-long course in which academic and out-of-university activities interact and overlap. The data were collected at the end of the course from student reports (...

Article
Full-text available
Switzerland, like other countries in Europe, has long depended on migration and mobility for its economy. Facilitating the integration of migrant children in school, primarily through the acquisition of the local language, has therefore been a priority for policymakers. In recent years, mobility has been on the increase and mobility trajectories ha...

This paper introduces two courses making use of performing arts at university level. The first course, taught by Prof. Simon Henein and his colleagues, called Improgineering, aims to teach collective creation through improvisation to master’s degree students in engineering at the EPFL (Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, Switzerland). The sec...
Chapter
Full-text available
Citizen science is a promising field for educational practices and research. However, it is also highly heterogeneous, and learning happens in diverse ways, according to project tasks and participants’ activities. Therefore, we adopt a sociocultural view of learning, in which understanding learning requires a close analysis of the situation created...
Chapter
Full-text available
The chapter gives an account of both opportunities and challenges of human–machine collaboration in citizen science. In the age of big data, scientists are facing the overwhelming task of analysing massive amounts of data, and machine learning techniques are becoming a possible solution. Human and artificial intelligence can be recombined in citize...

Article
This paper discusses the project of concrete psychology, anchored in vital human drama, both for Vygotsky and Politzer, and its methodological implications, especially from an interventionist, developmental, and transformative perspective. How are the concepts of concrete psychology and drama related for Politzer and Vygotsky? How can we push the a...
Article
Countries deciding on deconfinement measures after initial lock-downs in response to the COVID-19 pandemic often include the continued confinement of those most vulnerable to the disease in these plans as a matter of course. Such continued confinement, however, is neither innocuous nor obviously justified. In this paper, we examine more systematica...
Article
Full-text available
Bringing together perspectives is rarely an easy task. By assembling researchers from cognitive and cultural traditions to discuss their reciprocal research in the field of psychology of religion, we thought that we will end up with an ecumenical conclusion, everyone being convinced that the other perspective will enrich her or his approach in the...
Article
This paper highlights three main points. Firstly, it argues that despite the positioning of mainstream psychology as “objective research” i.e. disengaged from taking action in public life, there has always been in psychology a (quantitatively) minor but (qualitatively) strong tradition of intervention, defined as a joint practice engaging researche...

In this article, VET-related collaborative research is discussed as a potential transformative experience for workers/work collectives/work organizations. Three main ideas in the creation of dialogical frameworks for collaborative research are presented: (a) Vygotsky’s research focus on provoking development in order to study it (Vygotsky, 1934/198...
Article
Full-text available
The psychological impact of atrocities endured by refugee populations is clear, with the literature reporting significantly high prevalence rates of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Given the numerous criticisms surrounding the use of PTSD, we argue that cultural-historical psychology allows for a unique perspective in which to examine trauma...
Article
Full-text available
The need for culturally relevant treatment interventions for refugees focusing on post-migration factors is clearly of no small concern. To (i) explore culturally informed perspectives on trauma from an individual, qualitative perspective and (ii) track the trajectory of post-traumatic responses in relation to processes of social integration, we pr...

In the context of citizen cyberscience, creativity is generally thought to be positive and should be encouraged. When volunteers think “outside of the box” they bring their own unique perspectives to scientific problems and generate new ideas. In some cases, creativity can even lead to new scientific discoveries. However there are still many unansw...

Article
Full-text available
A growing number of work analysis methodologies demand a developmental approach, i.e. they aim to change workers and/or work situations. Some assume that this change can best be achieved by closely involving people in the analysis of their own work activity (e.g. Clot, 2008; Engeström, 1987, 2000; Béguin & Cerf, 2004; Pastré, 2005). However, resear...

Project
To investigate educational responses to children in repeated mobility through an exploratory study with teachers. The project aims to answer the following questions: 1. Have schools observed and/or documented such an increase of mobile children? 2. What specific challenges do teachers meet when they have such children in their classes? 3. What positive or negative consequences may result from these new class compositions for children, both mobile and local? 4. What strategies do schools and/or teachers develop to handle these new realities, and are there “good practices”? 5. What could be done to facilitate the potential issues observed – in terms of teacher training, teaching support, communication to families, school programs, etc.?
