2CO educational is an ongoing exploration of the educational issues of Communicating Complexity.
During the upcoming edition of our conference we will be hosting a series of design workshops which are free for all students of our partner universities.
In the light of our recent experiences in on-line education we have also decided to explore the remote dimension in Communicating Complexity education by organizing a first on-line introductory course on info-design.
The course had an italian-speaking first run, which we plan to pair with an English edition, open to students of our partner universities, as soon as possible.
This first educational module presents a general overview on information design. A series of ex-cathedra communications, by lecturers and researchers from 2CO’s Scientific Board, combine a perspective on the sector’s historical-cultural evolution with highlights on info-design’s the key thematic components.
The program was enriched by the participation of experts from two leading info-design firms, which presented and discussed case-studies from their direct professional experience.
The program also includeded some individual work, based on the course’s materials, recommended readings and the analysis/discussion of projects and case studies presented in class. And ended with a small individual test/presentation.
This first module was offered jointly by DADU, University of Sassari and The Architecture Dept. of the University of Bologna.
Participation to the course is worth 0.5 CFU/ECTS.
