joint PhD Course and Humans & IT research group seminar in CONSTRUCTIVE AND EXPERIMENTAL PRACTICE IN PHD RESEARCH
16th - 17th of August 2017 at the Dept. Of Digital Design and Information Studies, Aarhus University, Denmark.

Overview: Universities are opening up for ‘non-written materials’ to be submitted for assessment as part of PhD projects. These ‘non-written works’ can take on a wide array of forms, such as prototypes, mock-ups, scenarios, different forms of media and software, etc. Yet there are no clearly formulated methodologies and practices of how to implement these works into PhD research.

To address this new and exciting situation, we are planning a two-day seminar for the Research Group Humans and IT<>, where we - supported by prominent guest lecturers working with constructive methods - will explore the possibilities of this new development. In the seminar we will collectively develop strategies to take advantage of this new opportunity of knowledge creation both with regards to the PhD students work, as well as within our own research. Adjoining the seminar there will be a PhD course from the 15th - 18th of August, exploring similar questions from students’ perspective. In the course students will discuss different approaches to knowledge creation through constructive research and develop strategies to address PhD dissemination methodologies and formulations. Prominent and senior scholars from experimental and constructive arts and design research will assist the process, taking the students own practical work as point of departure.

Note that sign-up for the PhD course is not possible yet. The course and registration form can be found here in due time:
