Interdisciplinary College

Hybrid Interdisciplinary College 2022
Flexibility

Virtual: March 7th to March 12th
On-Site: March 13th to March 17th

Next year’s IK will be offered in a hybrid format, half online, half in-person on-site: an entirely new format, caused on the one hand by Covid-19, but on the other hand opening doors to new formats of teaching, learning, and knitting social connections. The focus theme Flexibility will be explored in the true interdisciplinary spirit of the IK in the directions of

  • Flexibility of the nervous system: adaptation, plasticity, development, evolution
  • Flexibility of the mind: situated behavior, adaptive learning, mental health, states of consciousness
  • Flexibility of communication: hybrid learning and teaching, adopting multiple perspectives, interaction of language and thinking, categorization
  • Flexibility of software solutions: adaptive SW and user interfaces, practical machine learning, agile SW development, flexible production.

More news will be announced soon.
