media art space = open experimental learning space

Our laboratory at University of Cologne has grown from a regular classroom to a multi purpose learning space – MedienBildungsRaum (mbr). Dealing with concepts of multi-purpose learning environments and theories on learning spaces and knowledge building, physical and virtual space are equally important for present and future learning processes. We seek to prepare flexible core concepts for adjustable spaces of new learning culture and develop patterns for different settings of learning and knowledge building activities based on Christopher Alexander’s Pattern–Language (1977), finding solutions for their representation in our particular room. It is vital for Bildung* to allow technology and architecture to be unnoticed and extraordinarily flexible to the changing demands of learning. Adjustable, agile, corrigible installations, furniture and portable technology define distinct but temporary zones of action and enable diversifiable settings for learning. There will be a general introduction to learning spaces and Christopher Alexander’s pattern language with examples, and participants will then develop patterns for learning.

Mediology (after Régis Debray) cross-disciplinary method of investigating the cultural transmission of religions, ideologies, the arts and political ideas in society, and across societies, over a time period that is usually to be measured in decades or millennia. Debray argues that mediology... "would like to bring to light the function of medium in all its forms, over a long time span - since the birth of writing.

  62. 62. Patterns and Pattern Language in education and learningOn the basis of in Christopher Alexander’s Pattern Language we interpret the settings for learning environments aspatterns. In patterns, elements of our surroundings are captured. The identified patterns are more than the sum of itsparts. It is a definite and observable arrangement of elements. At the same time it is permeable and open. Patterns joinconjunctions with other patterns in certain associations depending on their level of complexity and abstractionEducation design builds on Alexander’s methodological opus (“A Pattern Language", 1976), and uses it as a toolkit for theconception of clear-cut, and however flexible, learning environments.
