Sebastian H.D. Fiedler Together with Dr. Emanuele Bardone and Dr. Terje Väljataga we received funding through the BEST programme at Tallinn University for the design of a “course” offer titled “Developing Personal Learning Environments for Professional Growth”.

We plan to address the following issues and topics:

  • the unfolding transformation of work and learning within the creative economy
  • the rising role of networked autodidaxy and personal learning
  • chance seeking and its digital mediation
  • the importance of the tacit dimension in work and learning
  • the role of orientation knowledge in professional practice
  • making use of digital, networked instruments for the mediation of professional development and learning

This project is part of the joint activities that we are developing in the context of the Creative Economy Research Collective (CERcoll) We will eventually run this course (code KAV7100) starting in February 2014 through the Institute of Educational Sciences at Tallinn University.

Sebastian H.D. Fiedler Since March I have engaged in a series of conversations with Dr. Emanuele Bardone. Apart from some obvious similarities in our current set up (we both hold postdoctoral Research Fellowships at Tallinn University, have Estonian partners, occasionally struggle with the odd inter-culture challenge, and so forth), we quickly detected a certain compatibility in interests and orientations. Emanuele’s background in philosophy (of cognition) and his focus on “chance-seeking” in digital learning environments make an interesting fit with my longterm interest in autodidaxy, self-education, and the emancipation of individual and collective learning activity in the context of the unfolding, digital transformation of society.

Well, we will see where things are going… but at the moment we are tinkering with some rather practical ideas on how to give a research collaboration a more concrete shape. Stay tuned.
