book contribution about design competencies

It’s almost here: the new book Inquiry learning: how teaching can be renewed in university and universities of applied science by Mieg & Lehmann (Ed.) will be published by Campus Publishers and is currently on the way to the printer!

Learning through research could revolutionize teaching at universities and colleges – and since the research project #Student Research teams at the HfG, which I directed until 2014, I always come across aspects of learning through research. But what it is exactly: The focus is learning by yourself. This requires rethinking, both of studying as well as teaching and management: from teachers to coaches. The books illuminates learning through research in more than twenty subjects, and of course design — as a new method of understanding and comprehension, the combination of theory and practice and also in preparation for complex tasks in professional life. The book benefits from the experience of the “Teaching Quality Pact”, in which nearly 200 universities participate. With this program, federal and state governments are investing billions to update and revitalize university teaching.

It will commercially available as of December.
