Co-Create Malmö – A Mini-festival on How a City Can Learn Together

Co-Create MalmoAs part of the Co-Create Malmö – A Mini-festival on How a City Can Learn Together (9-11 May 2016) Mette Agger Eriksen and Per-Anders Hillgren will offer a workshop/discussion about what roles collaborative experiments can play in creating learning for systemic change. They will share some of their experiences, theory-based views on and approaches to this. As a part of the event participants are also invited in smaller groups to share and reflect on own concrete experiments – to open for further discussion on how we can understand and learn from experiments and assist in pushing for systemic change.

The workshop/discussion will take place in the studio on fifth floor in Niagara,  13-15 on May 9.

And the winner is…

Graphic Design student Alexander Örn (first year student) is the winner of Svensk Kollektivtrafiks student competition. He has designed their new symbol for student discount.

”Med kreativ höjd och lekfullhet har vinnaren skapat en enkel och tydlig symbol för studentrabatter inom kollektivtrafiken. Symbolen är särskiljande i sin karaktär och lätt att arbeta in hos målgrupperna. Juryn ser en symbol som kan användas till många olika plattformar och kanaler och kan leva i branschen en lång tid framöver.”

Arden Haldorson, also Graphic Design student, got a honorable mention from the jury.

Daidalos by Scenproduktion

DAIDALOSaffisch1

Torsdagen 21 april 17.30 invigs DAIDALOS, en installation byggd av studenter på Malmö Högskola. Med hjälp av kunskaper inom ljud, ljus och rum skapas en labyrint fylld med utmaningar och möjligheter. Det första steget in i labyrinten kommer förflytta dig till en annan tid och värld. Vågar du vara en del av den?

Vi är en grupp från Malmö Högskolas studenter på kandidatubildningen Scenproduktion. Utbildningen innefattar ljud, ljus och rum och är inriktad mot både teknik och visuellt skapande. Som slutprojekt i våra specialiseringskurser skapar vi i en labyrint med interaktiva delar och rum där besökare kan ta sig runt på egen hand och utforska installationen.

Det övergripande temat är post apokalyps och inne i labyrinten kommer man stöta på både spel och utmaningar. Rumsligt arbetar vi mycket med material som för andra kan ses som sopor och skräp. Exempelvis kommer väggarna vara byggda av återvunnet plast och kartong, men vi kommer också använda oss av delar som vi skapat i tidigare uppgifter under utbildningen.

Installationen kommer vara öppen mellan 17.00 och 20.00 torsdagen den 21 april.

Välkommen!

ComDev joins Flinders University’s innovative teaching event on ‘Timor-Leste: Challenges of a new state in the Asian century’

In a continuation of previous collaboration around the ‘Glocal Classroom‘, ComDev’s teaching team, led by Mikael Rundberg in Adelaide as well as Ronald Stade and Oscar Hemer in Malmö will be co-facilitating a 4-day Intensive teaching module using educational ICTs to bring on-campus and distance students together in a ‘blended classroom’. The event is organized by long-term ComDev collaborator Professor Susanne Schech at the School of History and International Relations.

The topic, Timor-Leste: Challenges of a new state in the Asian century, aims to equip students with the skills that enable them to perform professionally and socially in an international and multicultural context, as well as building discipline knowledge in international relations and international development. The topic centres on an Intensive held on the Flinders campus in Adelaide, Australia, which distance students participate in real time using educational ICTs including Skype, Flinders Learning Online (FLO), live-streamed video and chat. Central to the learning experience is participation in a synchronous in-person and online conference and simulation.

ComDev students will be able to join the conference and policy simulation; the conference will also be live-streamed on the ComDev portal and you can contact Mikael Rundberg for additional details.

The full conference program is available here: Timor Leste conference program and will take place on 19-20 April from 7.30-11.30 Swedish time.
