Understanding and designing for social media practices

Course leaders

  • Assoc. professor Alexandra Weilenmann
  • Dr. Thomas Hillman

Course description

The course addresses the need for researchers to understand and design for increasingly prevalent social media practices in all facets of life by developing a range of approaches. In particular, the course will explore ways of examining social media practices by zooming in and out from large scale analysis of trends to the local situated activities of users. The
course will offer opportunities for both examination of existing social media practices and for design-experiments that open up for new practices.
