Inquiry-based teach­ing and learn­ing enables an inter­weav­ing of the­o­ry, method­ol­o­gy, analy­sis and inter­pre­ta­tion, and research rep­re­sen­ta­tion and prac­tice expe­ri­ences. Stu­dents par­tic­i­pate, observe, and con­tribute to research. In addi­tion, a ser­vice learn­ing approach relates to exchanges and col­lab­o­ra­tion with com­mu­ni­ties, cul­tur­al insti­tu­tions, and actors in var­i­ous design fields, putting our aca­d­e­m­ic work in the ser­vice for sci­ence-with-pub­lic events and efforts.

Urban Mat­ters

Doc­tor­al Course and Trans­dis­ci­pli­nary Peer-Work­ing Group (since 2020)

Uni­ver­si­ty of Basel, HGK FHNW

The aim is to build net­works among peers, fos­ter col­lab­o­ra­tion, and to strength­en and diver­si­fy the pro­duc­tion of knowl­edge. We bring togeth­er group across the Uni­ver­si­ty of Basel and the Uni­ver­si­ty of Applied Sci­ences, Acad­e­my of Art and Design Basel with the effect of crosspol­li­na­tion of ideas and schol­ar­ship and devel­op­ing sci­ence-to-pub­lic for­mats in col­lab­o­ra­tion with var­i­ous communities/institutions as part of a Ser­vice Learn­ing approach.

Our goals are three­fold:

Par­tic­i­pants share a com­mon the­o­ret­i­cal or method­olog­i­cal research inter­est in mat­ters of space and spa­tial issues as they inter­sect with their indi­vid­ual fields (Anthro­pol­o­gy, Design, Archi­tec­ture, Urban Stud­ies, Gen­der Stud­ies, var­i­ous Area Stud­ies, Media Stud­ies, Lit­er­a­ture, Arche­ol­o­gy,  Human Geog­ra­phy, Urban Stud­ies, His­to­ry, Polit­i­cal Sci­ence, Soci­ol­o­gy, Psy­chol­o­gy, Lin­guis­tics, Biol­o­gy, etc).

Play­ing Cul­tures

Seri­ous Games, Mul­ti­modal Sto­ry­telling, Play­ful Media

CoCre­ate Pro­gramm, HS 2023
Mod­ul­gruppe, CoCre­ate

In this course as a diverse com­mu­ni­ty of learners/players, we choose social­ly rel­e­vant top­ics and build on method­olog­i­cal approach­es (includ­ing but not lim­it­ed to ethnog­ra­phy, scenog­ra­phy, per­for­mance stud­ies and inter­ac­tion design) toward devel­op­ing seri­ous games. Key themes will be explo­ration, inter­ac­tion, and immer­sion. In ana­log, hybrid and dig­i­tal set­tings, we deep­en com­pe­ten­cies in play­ing from a social and cul­tur­al per­spec­tive, engage in mul­ti­modal sto­ry­telling (text, arti­facts, audio, video, olfac­tion, etc) and game design. The seri­ous game pro­vides a per­for­ma­tive frame­work with com­pre­hen­si­ble strate­gies and roles; it under­lines the immer­sive char­ac­ter of the nar­ra­tive: com­plex con­texts are made acces­si­ble, every­day life and dif­fer­ent real­i­ties are being enact­ed — from one’s own and oth­er per­spec­tives. Ways of know­ing are mem­o­rized when con­nect­ed with inter­wo­ven lev­els of embod­ied per­cep­tion and through affec­tive reac­tions to immer­sive moments. In the ambigu­ous, flu­id spaces between iden­ti­fi­ca­tion, empa­thy, dis­tance and reflec­tion, we take up the chal­lenge in a seri­ous and play­ful way.
