Student virtual collaboration as messy entanglements of Bildung

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceedingChapterProfessional


In this chapter, I discuss student collaboration in a virtual learning environment through ideas of posthumanist Bildung and the cyborg metaphor. They offer analytic tools to understand the entanglements of students’ being/knowing/doing for a better world. Here I discuss spatial entanglements within student collaboration in a course on Team leadership on the platform itslearning. In virtual courses, human embodied experiences are entangled with digital technology. Digital platforms support certain actions and hinder others. For these reasons, the agency of the space is essential to investigate in education. Posthumanist Bildung helps explain possibilities and issues when cyborgs collaborate in a virtual space like itslearning.
