Exercer son esprit critique à l’ère informationnelle

Semester Start Date: 21.02.2022

Semester End Date: 27.05.2022
Faculty: Psychology / Education
ECTS: 3
Language: French

Content:

Aujourd’hui, notamment du fait de l’essor des technologies, nous sommes en permanence assaillis par une multitude d'informations. Pourtant, beaucoup d’entre elles semblent peu fiables voire volontairement mensongères, comme les fake news. Ainsi, même si nous n’avons jamais été aussi bien informés qu’avec Internet et les réseaux sociaux, la société fait paradoxalement face à un phénomène de désinformation. Comment exercer son esprit critique dans ce contexte et pour quels enjeux ? Pourquoi les fake news et les théories complotistes peuvent-elles nous apparaître séduisantes ? Tout au long de ce cours constitué de vidéos, d’interventions d’expert-es et d’activités variées, vous allez appréhender le phénomène de désinformation, en comprendre les ressorts et les manières de le contrer. Une première étape du cours sera d’identifier les divers biais cognitifs qui nuisent au raisonnement critique et à les reconnaître dans vos propres jugements. Puis, vous analyserez la diffusion des fake news : comment circulent-elles ? Quels sont leurs impacts sur le plan individuel et collectif ? En termes de compétences vous apprendrez des stratégies pour reconnaître les fausses informations et trouver des sources fiables. Vous analyserez le mécanisme cognitif de flexibilité cognitive, et enfin, vous apprendrez des stratégies concrètes afin de développer votre vigilance informationnelle.

One Health Core Competencies (3 ECTS)

The One Health Core Competencies course consists of a blended learning system, including synchronous and asynchronous units. In the asynchronous sessions, the participants will be led through the theoretical foundations of interdisciplinary teamwork, systems thinking and the One Health approach through self-study with interactive elements on the Moodle-platform. Participants will also see illustrative examples of current One Health scientific cases. During the synchronous sessions, participants will meet online via ‘Zoom’ and work together as multi- and interdisciplinary teams. They will reflect and discuss on the One Health approach and solve a real-world One Health problem using an interactive problem-based learning method. The learned content will be reviewed in interactive tasks on Moodle. As a final assignment, participants will develop a written report – the “Mission Plan” for solving the One Health problem.

The module will last for 8 weeks, starting on May 2nd, 2022, and is designed for around 90 working hours (3 ECTS), including 30 hours working with online material and meetings and around 60 hours self-study and project work.

Target group:

  • Itineraries: Communication and Exchange between Artists in Early Modern Europe (3 ECTS)
    As is well known from early modern artists' biographies, for example the Vite by Giorgio Vasari, painters, sculptors, goldsmiths and tapestry weavers led a highly nomadic life style. Travelling from court to court to find commissions or invited by European princes they worked in many different places. Occasionally, they changed names and became fully integrated in their place or country of work, which makes it complicated for modern historians to keep track of their movements and travel itineraries. In this new course, we shall try to find out about their travels, contacts and work conditions with a focus on the period between 1500 and 1648. Who met, shared ideas, collaborated and parted company why and when at the European courts. The work we will achieve in class will create the basics for a database project similar to what is done, for example, by the Medici Archive Project’s “The Birth of News” programme.

  • Artificial Intelligence: Interdisciplinary Perspectives (Online) (3 ECTS)
    In the last 50 years, research on artificial intelligence (AI) has repeatedly boomed but failed to deliver on its great promises. In the last decade, however, especially the deep learning approach has achieved remarkable results and is already applied in many contexts. Since this approach breaks with assumptions of the older symbolic approaches of AI research, a new philosophical discussion is needed. Therefore, the interdisciplinary seminar will start from the classical philosophical debate, which was shaped by thinkers like Herbert Dreyfus and John Searle and focused on the concept of the rule following, in order to confront it with the newer state of research, its data driven approach and the concept of learning. We will discuss the consequences and challenges of these new approaches in AI for their theoretical and philosophical reflection.

  • Transferable Skills for the Learning Sciences (3 ECTS)
    Students are introduced to the concept of skills from a therotical perspective. On the basis of this knowledge, students will be required to identify their existing skills and skills they would like to/need to acquire to succeed at their identified potential career tracks. Over the course of the seminar students will be required to put their skills and skill development in writing. Additionally, we plan to include indivual sessions tailored to specific skill development. Students will be introduced to different professions, the skills needed for that job and the people behind them.
  • International eLearning Approach on Teaching Strategies for Inclusion for Students with Autism (ECTS dependant on the requirements from your university)
    Contents include:
    1. Definition and manifestations of ASD
    2. Effects on the behavior of ASD
    3. Special challenges in teaching practice and school life
    4. Recommendations for intervention and structural measures
    5. Emotion regulation. What should teachers understand to create a good classroom climate?
    6. Augmentative and alternative communication (AAC).

  • Sanskrit-Lektüre: Bṛhatkatha – Die große Geschichte (3 ECTS)
    The legendary Bṛhatkatha (which literally translates as 'Long Story') has long been lost; yet no less highly regarded retellings have survived. Together we will read excerpts from two of these retellings, the Kathasaritsagara and the Bṛhatkathaslokasaṃgraha, and see how the multifaceted stories combine the mundane with the spiritual, and the everyday with the mythical, painting a vivid picture of Indian life. The teaching materials provided by the instructor offer comprehensive vocabulary and grammar notes, making the course suitable for everyone with at least two semesters/three terms of Sanskrit at university level.
  • Rigveda-Lektüre (3 ECTS)
    This Ṛgvedic reading course has a dual focus. For one, it will function as an introduction to the Vedic language for anyone with at least two semesters of Classical Sanskrit. And two, in our readings, we will focus more on the poetic and secular hymns of the Rigveda than on the purely ritual ones: this will help us get acquainted with the thought world of the Ṛigvedic world.
  • Materials Development for Language Learning (3 ECTS)
    This project-based course provides an introduction to the theories and practice of creating language learning materials. No prior knowledge of language pedagogy is expected, basics will be covered in extensive reading tasks. Participants are expected to draft their own materials as part of their course projects.
  • Kannada 1 (ECTS dependant on the requirements of the partner university)
    Introduction to the Kannada language (also called ‘Canarese’ in older historical sources), the perhaps foremost modern literary language of India. For its great historical importance, the Government of India officially declared Kannada a ‘classical language’. Furthermore, Kannada is the sole official language of the southern Indian state of Karnataka, the Indian economic ‘boom state’ and centre of Indian information technology, with which the Free State of Bavaria has had an agreement for scientific, technological, commercial and cultural exchange since 2007. “Kannada 1” is an introduction to the modern literary language, which has hardly changed over the past eight centuries. This means that by learning modern Kannada, one gains access to eight centuries of important literature for an understanding of Indian cultural history. The course is also suited as a first introduction to Dravidian linguistics.
  • Civilisation - Le handicap en France : Entre politiques d'accessibilité et création d'une culture originale (3 ECTS)

    The course deals with a not only personal but also cultural understanding of the term 'disability'. Using France as an example, it aims to contribute to a change of perspective so that disability is not only seen as negative, but also as a stimulus for cultural and artistic production. A historical overview of the history of disabled people in France will also be offered. As each participant gives a presentation on a freely chosen topic, the course becomes a dynamic opportunity for exchange.
