to facilitate student’s real-world laboratory projects to promote transformative and transdisciplinary competencies
The handbook shows how a TIL helps students to become change agents and how they can initiate change processes with a transdisciplinary and transformative research and innovation project of their own. Accordingly, the handbook contains:
A theoretical classification and contextualisation of sustainability, education, real-world labs and transformative research.
A detailed inside view of our projects and comprehensive description of all phases with their content, learning objectives, recommendations for academic implementation and ideas for suitable formats.
A step-by-step description of the implementation processes in a TIL complete with numerous tips and tricks, including suggestions for integration into curricula, notes on planning and preparing a TIL, and lessons from past TILs on topics such as peer learning, using a simulation game or incorporating issues like role awareness, ethics in transformative research and personal development.
The digital version can be downloaded free of charge in the left blue box. Would you like to display the handbook at your university?
