Transformatives Lernen im Geographieunterricht

Die neue Ausgabe der Zeitschrift „Praxis Geographie“ ist erschienen. Die erste Ausgabe des Jahres 2023 wird moderiert von Prof. Dr. Ulrike Ohl und Ass.-Prof. Dr. Fabian Pettig. Das Themenheft versammelt unterrichtspraktische Ideen zum Transformativen Lernen im Geographieunterricht und macht damit Aushandlungsprozesse rund um Nachhaltigkeit und konkrete Zukunftsperspektiven zum Gegenstand des Unterrichts. Neben dem Basisbeitrag, in dem die beiden Moderatoren Facetten eines zukunftsfähigen Geographieunterrichts herausarbeiten, wirkt Prof. Dr. Ulrike Ohl gemeinsam mit Julia Gschirr und Elisabeth Schuster an einem Praxisbeitrag zu „Unsere Stadt der Zukunft - Visionen für lebenswerte Städte“ mit. 

Bereits jetzt freuen wir uns sehr, Fabian Pettig im Frühjahr als Gast am Lehrstuhl begrüßen zu dürfen und den Austausch zusammen weiterzuführen.

How we see time. New open access publication in the International Journal of Cartography

Time, much like space, has always influenced the human experience due to its ubiquity. Yet, how we have communicated temporal information graphically throughout our history, is still inadequately studied. How does our image of time and temporal events evolve as the human world continuously transforms into a globally more and more synchronized community? Within this overview paper, we elaborate on these questions, we analyze visualizations of time and temporal data from a variety of sources connected to exploratory data analysis. We assign codes and cluster the visualizations based on their graphical properties. The result gives an overview of different visual structures apparent in graphic representations of time.
