We develop research about science communication, interdisciplinarity and innovative pedagogies.
We collaborate to several research programs on outreach, interdisciplinarity and innovative pedagogies. We seek to better understand what is at stake in new forms of scientific communication, both from the point of view of content and interaction with the public. We also study the productions and working methods in our science-design collaborations, the status of interdisciplinarity or hybrid objects produced. On the teaching side, we are studying how our innovations are changing students’ perceptions of science, particularly in terms of experimental know-how. We also evaluate these lessons both in their effects on cross-curricular and disciplinary competencies.
We currently participate in the french ANR programs Descitech (coord. J. Chevrier, Univ. Grenoble), ANR Carangoni (coord. M. Roché, MSC Univ Paris-Diderot), ANR Link (coord. P. Mendels, Univ. Paris-Sud). Our main collaborators in these programs: LPS teams (Paris-Sud University), CodesignLab (Telecom ParisTech), DiDasCo (Paris-Sud), Institut Villebon-Georges Charpak (Paris-Saclay), Institut de la communication (Univ. Lyon 2), MSC (University Paris-Diderot).
