An intensive crash course in the practice and philosophy of New Media Technology, issued by the department DMC (Digital Media & Communication). During the course we will not only approach concepting and design from a practical perspective but also enhance the philosophical question of how man interacts with technology. We will dream up magnificent IoT services and also explore theoretical frames and ethics to interpret and comprehend these developments.

IoT, the Internet of Things, is evolving rapidly and is believed to have an enormous impact on the way man organizes and behaves; the world is believed to change dramatically due to the ubiquity of (internet) connectivity.

In this one-week creative crash course students will participate, together with young professionals from a leading consultancy company in concepting a feasible design for a media-technology based IoT solution. You will receive a briefing on Monday morning and deliver a conceptual solution on Friday morning.

The setup of the course is as follows. In the morning, you will participate in socratic sessions and workshops. In the afternoons, you will work in a team, defining and paper-prototyping a practical solution to the assignor’s briefing.

So, we will not only approach concepting and design from a practical perspective but also enhance the philosophical question of how man interacts with and accepts technology. We will dream up magnificent IoT services and also explore theoretical frames and ethics to interpret and comprehend these developments.

 
If we want to deploy new media technologies to our benefit, enriching human life, we must research their impact on our lives, learn how to design these technologies for the use of people and understand how to control them.

 The desired outcomes of this intensive one-week course are better understanding of what IoT is really all about and how we (may) address it and the creation of great and feasible concepts for IoT applications .
