Abstract

Est-il possible, aujourd’hui, de penser l’urbain en termes de projet ? Dans un climat d’incertitude, une attitude consiste à comprendre le projet d’architecture et de paysage comme une ouverture au devenir du réel et à en faire, dans le cadre d’une école, un outil de réflexion et d’innovation en prise directe sur la complexité des enjeux urbains. Répondant à la sollicitation de l’Université de Bordeaux engagée depuis 2009 dans la mise en œuvre de l’Opération Campus sur les sites universitaires de l’agglomération bordelaise, l’atelier campus de l’ensapBx est un lieu de recherche et d’expérimentation. Il se veut force de proposition autour de la vie du campus, de tout ce qu’elle pourrait être, et du lien qui reste à penser et à construire entre les différents temps des utilisateurs de l’Université. La collection ABC - Atelier Bordeaux Campus - se fixe comme objectif de diffuser régulièrement les recherches produites dans le cadre de l’atelier campus. Le premier volume, Structures, restitue une exploration du potentiel de renouvellement et de recyclage des formes bâties à différentes échelles sur le territoire du campus Talence Pessac Gradignan (TPG). L’occasion de jeter les bases d’un « code » de l’espace tel qu’Henri Lefebvre l’appelait de ses vœux, soit d’un langage commun à là pratique et à la théorie, aux habitants, aux architectes, aux scientifiques.

Abstract

Le travail historique conduit par Gilles Ragot sur la base de plans et de documents issus des archives du Rectorat permet de mieux comprendre la spatialité ambiguë, entre porosité et intériorité, qui caractérise les lieux à l'heure actuelle. Corroborant les conclusions des analyses conduites dans le cadre des volumes ABC1 (Structures - 2011) et ABC 2 (Perceptions - 2012), il met en évidence les structures invisibles issues d'une négociation entre les multiples acteurs impliqués dans la fabrication du campus qui contribuent encore fortement à forger l'identité de ce territoire « hors normes » au sein de la métropole bordelaise.

Abstract

"This paper considers the social value of anonymity in online university student communities, through the presentation of research which tracked the final year of life of the social media application Yik Yak. Yik Yak was an anonymous, geosocial mobile application launched in 2013 which, at its peak in 2014, was used by around two million students in the US and UK. The research we report here is significant as a mixed method study tracing the final year of the life of this app in a large UK university between 2016 and 2017. The paper uses computational and ethnographic methods to understand what might be at stake in the loss of anonymity within university student communities in a datafied society. Countering the most common argument made against online anonymity – its association with hate speech and victimisation – the paper draws on recent conceptual work on the social value of anonymity to argue that anonymity online in this context had significant value for the communities that use it. This study of a now-lost social network constitutes a valuable portrait by which we might better understand our current predicament in relation to anonymity, its perceived value and its growing impossibility."

Abstract

This publication is the result of an international and interdisciplinary expert meeting at Technische Universität Berlin, in March 2020. The aim of the expert meeting was to collaboratively write and publish a book, within five days, on the central question: Which organizational structures and processes at universities support a strategic as well as innovative campus development?As experts with an interdisciplinary background including the social sciences, public real estate, urban planning, architecture and landscape architecture, we could examine the question from a holistic perspective and gain new insights.The resulting manifesto states necessary strategies and action fields to make universities as hybrid environments innovative and sustainable. It addresses all decision makers – executives, practitioners and contributors equally – who are facing the challenge of limited resources and are embracing the opportunities to do more with less.

Abstract

Higher education institutions (HEIs) have a unique role and responsibility for the future and for driving the development of a sustainable society. HEIs are charged with the task of fostering sustainability in the leaders of tomorrow, developing solutions and methods for addressing a sustainable future and ensuring that knowledge is contributed to society. HEIs must also ensure that their everyday operations and practices are consistent with a sustainable future, and that they work toward holistically integrating sustainability into both the mission of a university and its daily tasks. This Special Issue builds on papers presented during the 2018 International Sustainable Campus Network Conference and also includes other contributions. The articles reflect the many aspects of sustainability in higher education institutions and illustrate innovation in approach, outcomes, and impact. The papers cover a range of perspectives on sustainability both on and around campuses. These include organization and management issues, networking and city partnership themes, and metrics and indicators related to sustainable development goals. The Special Issue also includes papers on education, student involvement, and gender issues. Select articles include results from surveys and desktop research; others depict approaches on experimentation, living labs, and action research.

Abstract

An der Erforschung und Erprobung der mediengestützten Lern- und Arbeitsszenarien in Wissenschaft und Hochschule sind Expertinnen und Experten aus unterschiedlichsten Domänen beteiligt. Damit steht die Aktivität der Gesellschaft für Medien in der Wissenschaft (GMW) unter dem Zeichen der Interdisziplinarität. Bereits etabliert sind Fächerkombinationen wie die Mediendidaktik oder die Medieninformatik. Im wissenschaftlichen Alltag entstehen jedoch deutlich mehr interdisziplinäre Schnittstellen, deren Erörterung und Untersuchung das Thema der GMW-Tagung 2015 sind. Die Tagungsbeiträge finden sich in den Themenbereichen Digitale Medien und Interdisziplinarita¨t, Open Educational Resources, Gescha¨ftsmodelle sowie Gestaltung und Praxis wieder. Die GMW 2015 will den Diskurs zur Nutzung digitaler Medien in interdisziplinären Settings durch wissenschaftlich und praktisch fundierte Studien bereichern und konsolidieren.

Abstract

Universities are social universes in their own right. They are the site of multiple, complex and diverse social relations, identities, communities, knowledges and practices. At the heart of this book are people enrolling at university for the first time and entering into the broad variety of social relations and contexts entailed in their ‘coming to know’ at, of and through university. By recasting ‘the transition to university’ as simultaneously and necessarily entailing a transition of university — indeed universities — and of their many and varied constitutive relations, structures and practices, the contributors to this book seek to reconceptualise the ‘first-year experience’ in terms of multiple and dynamic processes of dialogue and exchange amongst all participants. They interrogate taken-for-granted understandings of what ‘the university’ is, and consider what universities might yet become.

Abstract

How the essential democratic values of diversity and free expression can coexist on campus.Safe spaces, trigger warnings, microaggressions, the disinvitation of speakers, demands to rename campus landmarks—debate over these issues began in lecture halls and on college quads but ended up on op-ed pages in the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal, on cable news, and on social media. Some of these critiques had merit, but others took a series of cheap shots at “crybullies” who needed to be coddled and protected from the real world. Few questioned the assumption that colleges must choose between free expression and diversity. In Safe Spaces, Brave Spaces, John Palfrey argues that the essential democratic values of diversity and free expression can, and should, coexist on campus. Palfrey, currently Head of School at Phillips Academy, Andover, and formerly Professor and Vice Dean at Harvard Law School, writes that free expression and diversity are more compatible than opposed. Free expression can serve everyone—even if it has at times been dominated by white, male, Christian, heterosexual, able-bodied citizens. Diversity is about self-expression, learning from one another, and working together across differences; it can encompass academic freedom without condoning hate speech.Palfrey proposes an innovative way to support both diversity and free expression on campus: creating safe spaces and brave spaces. In safe spaces, students can explore ideas and express themselves with without feeling marginalized. In brave spaces—classrooms, lecture halls, public forums—the search for knowledge is paramount, even if some discussions may make certain students uncomfortable. The strength of our democracy, says Palfrey, depends on a commitment to upholding both diversity and free expression, especially when it is hardest to do so.
