The 50+20 Collaboratory – methodology and approach for short one-time sessions
The philosophy of the collaboratory forms the key feature of the 50+20 vision and involves a circular space that is open to concerned stakeholders to meet on equal terms for any given transdisciplinary issue.
The collaboratory embodies the overarching philosophy that unites the three proposed new roles of management education for the world into a concrete action research and learning approach. As such, it represents an open-source metaspace: a facilitated platform based on open space and consciousness building technologies. A collaboratory is conducted without formal separation between knowledge production and knowledge transfer, while focusing on visceral real-life issues and developing solution in a process of engagement that is driven by challenges, not theory.
