fields of practice

Alone or in groups, at home or at school, at the workplace or in a museum – knowledge emerges everywhere. Digital media are present in all these places and surround us at all times in our daily lives. We are interested in the processes that happen during knowledge acquisition or exchange and in how these processes are influenced by digital media.

In our research about knowledge processes with digital media, we mainly focus on the application fields of school, university, museums & exhibitions, knowledge work, and knowledge-related internet usage and look at the described phenomena in these contexts.

In order to guarantee application of our research, the IWM also collaborates with schools, universities, museums and partners from the business world. Together with our partners, we realize pilot scenarios and test them for their practicability. On the following pages we present our work especially for (potential) application partners from schools, universities, museums and organizations.
