This introductory blended learning course to the field of media & well-being offers a wide perspective of topics concerning the qualities, usage and challenges of analogue and digital media for the different age groups time birth to adolescence and adulthood.
It is laying out the landscape of a media-conscious education – taking into account different aspects of the topic, bringing together various stakeholders in the children’s developmental journey and inviting the people who are guiding and accompanying children and young adults on their way to participate in our learning journey.
We invite you to explore the topic on different levels by engaging in artistic activities and collecting experiences with analogue and digital media yourself, by finding out what others have to say and by developing new ideas in collegial exchange and working together on concrete pedagogical questions.
We will meet on 3 Saturdays from 4 to 7 pm (CET) online. Additionally, we offer material in this course for individual self-study and for working together in collegial groups.
THIS COURSE WILL OPEN SOON.
In order to particpate in this course and attend the online meetings, you have to buy a ticket first (payment according to your possibility).
Further course material will be added as the course develops throughout the next weeks.
