Towards Knowledge Co-construction
This chapter focusses on cooperative processes of building knowledge in contexts such as learning, decision-making or design. Starting from individual perspectives, knowledge co-construction involves unique, creative ways of appropriating and interpreting existing knowledge, and integrating different views into common results. Knowledge projects unfold through self-organization, where each actively engaging participant at once contributes to and intervenes in the process. Thus, group work and organization, management and team leadership, as well as the roles of teachers and learners, appear in a new light. Drawing on experiences gained in organizing, teaching, and providing technical support for ifu, the discussion is centered on how knowledge projects can be guided, framed and supported.
