MA Course: 'Theory and practice of digital media'
I am leading a course as guest lecturer this spring at MOKK Centre for Media Research and Education of Budapest University of Technology and Economics. The master students, mainly with a major in communication and media studies, will join and assist in the research of The Format Project.
In the first lecture I touched upon the socio-political relevance of collaboration and cooperation methodologies. I highlighted that we need social systems that make people feel engaged and motivated to contribute to common good. Such systems have to be designed, often from scratch, and technology has both an inspiring and an enabling role in this process. Thus, experimentation with collaboration methodologies is extremely important as they model new ways of social co-existence, cooperation and collaboration.
