Critical Making will operationalize and critique the practice of “making” through both foundational literature and hands on studio culture. As hybrid practitioners, students will develop fluency in readily collaging and incorporating a variety of physical materials and protocols into their practice. With design research as a lens, students will envision and create future computational experiences that critically explore social and culturally relevant technological themes such as community, privacy, environment, education, economics, energy, food, biology, democracy, activism, healthcare, social justice, etc. More information can be found from the links above.
Important Enrollment Info for Spring 2017
All students will be waitlisted prior to the start of the course. Enrollment from the waitlist for Critical Making is based on an application the instructor will distribute prior to the end of the Fall 2016 semester. Enrollment will not be based on waitlist order but you must be on the waitlist to be admitted to the course. Please put yourself on the waitlist or you will not receive the email informing you to complete the enrollment form. Do not use Phase 1 TeleBears as your position on the waitlist will not matter. All enrollment decisions will be made before the end of the Fall semester.
