KurzbeschreibungThis learning module titled "Worldviews" delves into the exploration of how individuals perceive the world and construct their understanding of reality. It emphasizes the significance of worldviews, defined as fundamental beliefs and modes of participation in the broader context.
LernzielIn this module, participants will embark on a journey to explore the rich tapestry of worldviews, understanding how different cultures and individuals perceive and reason about the world. The learners delve into the intersection of scientific discourse and practical application (praxis), examining the profound impact of scientific perspectives on shaping our collective understanding. A key focus is introducing "warm data," a concept that adds depth to our comprehension of complex systems, demonstrated through real-world examples such as fast fashion dumps and agriforest systems.

The module highlights the role of design, emphasizing both design processes and meta-design—viewing mental maps as dynamic tools that can foster collaborative transformations toward resilient and regenerative systems. Furthermore, the participants explore the potential of artificial intelligence (AI) as a catalyst for regeneration, investigating its role in sustainable practices and contemplating ethical considerations for its responsible integration. Participants are encouraged to engage actively, broaden their perspectives, and contribute to collectively shaping a more sustainable and regenerative future through these objectives.
InhaltThe module starts by delving into the fundamental concept of worldviews, emphasizing their role as foundational beliefs and modes of participation in the broader context. The inclusion of perspectives from Daniel Wahl and Jeremy Lent, as well as an exploration of indigenous and Eastern philosophies, provides a well-rounded approach to understanding diverse ways of knowing and reasoning.

Incorporating practical examples, such as fast fashion dumps in Chile and agriforest systems in African countries, adds a tangible dimension to the theoretical discussions. This approach helps participants connect abstract concepts to real-world scenarios, fostering a deeper understanding of the implications of different worldviews on environmental and societal issues.

The emphasis on "warm data" introduces a holistic perspective, encouraging participants to consider interconnected systems and view challenges comprehensively. Including meta-design as a tool for collaborative transition promotes active engagement in shaping resilient and regenerative systems.

Furthermore, the module's exploration of the role of artificial intelligence (AI) in regeneration adds a forward-looking dimension, addressing the potential for technological innovation to contribute to sustainable practices.

Voraussetzungen / BesonderesMOOC#1 Worldviews - From Sustainability to Regeneration is a pathway to CAS#1 Sustainability to Regeneration. To be accepted into the CAS, applicants must have completed the respective MOOC by the time the CAS starts. The content from the MOOC will be supplemented in the CAS by live virtual events with experts from all over the world. In addition, after the first virtual introductory introductory week, a real design excursion to the MonViso Design excursion to the MonViso Institute in Italy. This trip is obligatory.

The final delivery of the CAS should demonstrate the scientific base of our work in evidence-based writing with a foundation in the peer-reviewed literature and graphical, visual, systems-mapping, and spatial ways of designerly expressions. As the main deliverable, participants must submit a framed graphical Quest synthesis process map consisting of two main parts: a graphical synthesis map (pdf format) and a framing text bracket that motivates, introduces, explains, discusses, and concludes the synthesis map.
