The courses are primarily offered for the study programs of the BA and MA Media Literacy: Audivisual Culture and Communicationand Teachers Education. In addition, the offered courses are reguraly opened to students of Computational Visualistics and Computer Science.
Additionally, students from other degree programs are invited to get in touch for supervising, if their thesis is intersecting questions of educational science, philosophy of education and digital media or digital cultures.
The particular research interests can be located in the intersecting fields of learning and educational processes with a focus on digital media and digital mediality. Digital media plays a crucial role, when it comes to self-formation and the perception of world, which is more and more driven by digital technologies that impact all societal areas, political decision making and innovation.
Digital media does not only affect our understanding of the world and how we see, it is changing the way of thinking radically. Thus, the research is addressing education and the philosophy of education by means of media theory and algorithm studies.
Working Group at the Short Conference "Shaping Schools" of the German Academic Scholarship Foundation
From November 5 to 7, the German Academic Scholarshiphttps://www.studienstiftung.de/ Foundation's annual event "Shaping School" will take place in Halle/Saale. Janne Stricker and Dan Verständig are hosting a working group on education in the digital world and will work together with the scholarship holders on educational professions, in particular teacher education. In interactive sessions, we will jointly develop positions on key challenges such as educational justice, education and the digital condition, and digitalization in education. We will derive strategies to reflect on contemporary teaching and learning.
We are very much looking forward to the exchange!
AI Network Energetics | Huge computing centers and decentralized processing units operate seemingly invisibly in the background, consuming a lot of energy and producing a not to be underestimated amount of CO2 emissions. Consequently, we are confronted with questions about how we can behave responsibly in a globally networked world, how we can make decisions to design and use the digital technologies that surround us in a more sustainable way.
These questions - and many more - will be addressed by Györgyi Gálik, innovation designer, Ágoston Nagy, artist and researcher at the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design, and Juliane Ahlborn, PhD student at the University of Magdeburg, in a panel discussion on "AI Network Energetics" at the Goethe Institute Hungary on October 14, 2021, 6PM.
Interested parties are cordially invited to participate in the online event. Registration is free.
