It is a central goal of the international graduate program REASON to link theoretically driven research findings and practice fields.
In current research practices of the learning sciences, latest research results typically quickly find their way into research journals but fail to inform practitioners about the practical meaning of these findings. Thus, the focus on practice transfer in REASON is of great importance. We would like to address the question of how theoretically driven empirical work regarding scientific reasoning and argumentation can be implemented and transferred to practice.
In order to address this challenge, the practice transfer intiatives have been coordinated by previous and current PhD candidates in close cooperation with the Munich Center of the Learning Sciences.
Two separate project strands are of major importance for the community task. First, we are trying to integrate latest empirical research findings into teaching and learning environments at the LMU. Second, we are working on establishing innovative ways to communicate ongoing REASON research by the means of creating podcasts that illustrate latest research findings and ongoing projects in a vivid and accessible manner. Further information on this strand will be provided shortly.
