• Develop communication concepts from basic ideas to user-testable prototypes
• Conduct and report on a practice-based research by design project
|Fagligt indhold:||Together with the first course of this specialization, this course teaches students how to combine competence in media and communication with design methods to create innovative new media products for a variety of digital platforms. The course is organised in a problem¬-based learning approach and will be highly student-active, focusing on the students’ own work with practical cases and projects.
The course will be structured around a practical, semester-long project done in collaboration with one or more external partners. The projects should aim to develop innovative communication concepts to a prototype state where they can be meaningfully tested and evaluated with real users. The main focus is on how to develop communication concepts which give value both to users/audiences and the external partners.
|Læringsaktiviteter:||14 ugers undervisning bestående af forelæsninger, øvelser og vejledning|
Note: Some lectures and class activities may take place in English
Compulsory class attendance on first day of class + at two compulsory presentations.
The presentations are part of the project work. They are likely to demand a large part of the student’s time in the last week before the presentation is to be held.
It is compulsory for all students to take part in preparing the group presentations, and be present when they are held. It is not required that all students speak during the presentations.
Supervising in class and in groups
What if the student fails to pass a mandatory activity:
If a group testifies that someone did not participate in preparing the group presentation, it is treated as a group conflict. The teachers may attempt to facilitate a solution to the conflict, but if that fails, the student(s) in question may at the teacher’s discretion be removed from the group and asked to do a separate project alone or together with other students.
Students who are unable to attend a compulsory course day will be given an essay assignment that must be passed instead.
Be aware: The student will receive the grade NA (not approved) at the ordinary exam, if the mandatory activities are not approved and the student will use an exam attempt.
