Studio 1 - Knowledge in Transformation: Instruction, Interaction and Materiality

Studio 1 addresses issues pertaining to knowledge in transformation, particularly in relation to technological advancements in various professional domains. Empirical studies are conducted in university-based professional education as well as technology intense work settings.

The overarching purpose of the project is to advance patient-centred care in the context of hybrid procedures. Such procedures are increasingly enabled through the construction of hybrid operating rooms. Following the implementation of such medical facilities we can witness a number of new challenges and learning opportunities. In order to continually ascertain high quality specialist care, the project aims to develop efficient and safe treatment procedures with particular emphasis on inter-professional communication and the utilization of medical imaging technologies in the hybrid operating room.

The project addresses how advancements in imaging technologies challenge existing expertise and necessitates the development of new criteria and methods of interpretation. In a study of tomosynthesis, which is a technology for chest radiology, it is demonstrated how a particular educational arrangement that involves a combination of imaging tools can be used to develop quality criteria and to enhance novices' detection skills of pulmonary nodules to the level of experienced radiologists. The results also show how such arrangements allow for the display of expert reasoning in situ and how this is bound up with disciplinary knowledge.

In endodontics, the use of surgical microscopes has not just simplified certain procedures, but also fundamentally changed the way that root canal treatments are done and understood. Moreover, by having video cameras built into the microscopes, students are now able to follow the procedures in new ways. The aim of the project is to explore how the introduction of surgical microscopes changes the premises for instruction as well as expert performance.
