The symposium centres on theoretical perspectives and practices which aim at paving the way towards a new, performative teaching and learning culture. Guiding questions will include: What is the essence of the ‘performative’? Are there indications of an increased ‘performative orientation’ in some of our disciplines? Could the ‘performative concept’ signal a whole new way of thinking and acting in the field of ‘teaching and learning’ (=new paradigm)? What are the characteristic features of performative teaching and learning? How does one learn to teach in a performative way?
