Om emnet

The subject of this course is to explore the notion of a Nordic model of digital urbanism. We will research how societal values of trust, equity and collective rights might be translated into new kinds of digital urban services. The research will be organized around three kinds of activities: literature studies, mappings of current practices, and explorations of alternative approaches to the design of digital urban services.

Læringsutbytte

Knowledge: The students will gain knowledge about urbanism as a resource for exploring a Nordic model for digitalization across interaction and service design.

 

Skills: The students will learn to explore alternative approaches to the design of digital urban services through readings, surveying/mapping and design experiments. 

Competence: The students will acquire analytical competence for exploring alternative approaches to the design of digital urban services for Nordic settings.

Praktisk organisering og arbeidsmåter

The course will consist of four parts: 1) a selection of lectures on issues of digital urbanism and the Nordic model, 2) readings and seminar discussions, 3) fieldwork: surveying/mapping of current practices, 4) explorations of alternative approaches to the design of digital urban services (to be written up as final paper / report). 

Pensum

Curriculum will be presented when the course starts.
