2. Transdisciplinary Dialogue
Education and health are two sides of the same coin for life expectancy (Lutz/Kebede 2018 https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1111/padr.12141). The decisive factor here is a careful and preventive start to formal learning. This topic, at first glance distant from adult education, was addressed by the second Transdisciplinary Dialogue Adult Education of the Center for Transdisciplinary Continuing Education Research in the Department of Continuing Education Research and Educational Management at the University of Continuing Education Krems. Basically, learning in early childhood is done through play, according to Serap Sevimli-Celik. Play, if given space, generates learning and well-being as if by itself. The fact that body-oriented and play-based forms of learning should also be used in a science-based, goal-oriented manner, for example to build mathematical imagination, was vividly illustrated and tried out in the practical workshop the next day.
