I’m excited to announce that Dr. Federico Casalegno, director of the Mobile Experience Lab, will be teaching the Civic Media Codesign Studio course during the Spring Semester of 2013. Becky Hurwitz, Community Organizer and Codesign Facilitator at the Center for Civic Media, will join him as course TA. This year, the course will have a special emphasis on how to plan, execute, document, and follow-up on inclusive hackathons in community spaces.
