Transdisciplinary Education

The complexity of major research questions, such as those examining megatrends like climate change, migration, and urbanization, requires universities to take a collaborative and participative approach. In addition to interdisciplinarity, it is increasingly important to create strategic research alliances between university and society: this is the core of transdiscplinary education.

Transdisciplinary teaching includes the many attempts to shape research and reflection processes together with society through dialog and to integrate the plurality of knowledge resources - including professional knowledge, everyday knowledge, and implicit knowledge - from politics, civil society, business, and culture into the research and learning process.

Transdisciplinary education provides students with the framework to distinguish between knowledge-based resources, consider their use for specific issues, and find ways to integrate these sources of knowledge into their studies and research. At the same time, students learn about their responsibility to communicate with society and to open avenues to allow them to share their own learning experiences and research results with society. The spectrum of relevant teaching methods at TU Berlin ranges from project laboratories, real-life laboratories, and service learning, through to various forms of exploratory student research.
