Abstract

This inforgraphic describes a collaborative- transdisciplinary higher education teaching project organised by Jade University of Applied Sciences and University of Applied Sciences Emden/ Leer in Lower Saxony, Germany interconnecting bachelor and master students of the following fields: a) early childhood pedagogy, b) geoinformation science, c) architecture and d) civil enginieering. The cross-disciplinary task of a kindergarden design proposal offers a comprehensive and practical example for all four participating professional disciplines addressing practise-based learning. The task requires professional knowledge input and a specific role by each of the individual discipline: Students of early childhood pedagogy provide the pedagogical concept by taking the role of a client. Combined with information on the site regarding ecology, demography, soil and climate by geoinformation science students, architectural students translate the requirements into a design proposal. The civil engineers act as consultants on climate-sensitive construction and construction site logistics regarding the location on an island. The project enables students to experience working in a transdisciplinary environment. Of particular interest are the challenges of integrating multiple perspectives based on expert knowledge in a design process task of a learning environment focussing on resource-efficient and climate-sensitive criteria. The project focusses on the following competences and learning outcomes: communication, cooperation and coordination, development of a scientifically reflecting habitus, flexibility and openness to unknown and foreign methodologies. Furthermore, learning in a protected and closed academic environment by realistic case challenges is a process that allows students to foster creative exploration, realistic simulations and feasible experiments. Due to the corona pandemic the module was conducted completely online, which surprisingly enhanced the cross-disciplinary group work. Evolving from content-based teaching to learning by knowledge consolidation and further development of individual skills enabled the lecturers to emphasize on independent, creative and responsible teaching to provoke intrinsic motivation and positive learning outcomes. This teaching module was conducted for the first time during the summer semester 2020 and will be offered frequently.
