Working Group New Learning Cultures
The concept of culture characterizes our current studies: pedagogical performance culture, error culture, reading culture but also learning culture. According to Weinert, learning culture refers to "the totality of the forms of teaching and teaching styles that are typical for a certain period of time, as well as the underlying anthropological, psychological, social and pedagogical orientations." In the events and meetings of the WG New Learning Cultures new or alternative learning cultures are developed smf tested, as well as presented and discussed. The goal is to create changed learning cultures through the transformation of existing practice, which in this sense are to be understood as new learning cultures. The focus is on the opening of teaching, the democratization of schools or the digitization of our areas of life.

"We are students of the University of Siegen, who banded
together in order to publicize our writings. We continue in
the tradition of the University Newspapers: we inform,
discuss, and want to inspire you to critique. On the other
hand, we create room for journalistic efforts (reports,
news coverage, commentaries, interviews, reviews etc.), as
well as literary works (prose, lyrics, drama). Anything
that interests you and could also be of interest to others.
Writing is a fundamental part of studying, but for many it
is also a part of their leisure time and creative
development. Why should those works rot in the drawer? We
put your writings online to be admired and discussed." Are
you interested in participating with us? Then just come by.
Visit an editorial meeting or the regular informal
gathering! You can find our current events on our homepage.
