The Academic Third Space. Impact of Interdisciplinary Higher Education on Socio-technical Innovation.
Cities are at the center of attention for experts and policymakers to resolve pressing economic, social, and environmental challenges. New forms of urban governance emerge to meet increasing expectations towards sustainable urban development. Lukas Gilliard investigates how interdisciplinarity in higher education can contribute to more innovative and transformative practices, since established forms of higher education are not suitable for systemic urban complexities. He developed the theory of the academic third space that encompasses new collaborative learning formats for interdisciplinary students.
