We’re excited to announce that enrollment is now open for the Spring 2018 version of the Civic Media: Codesign Studio (CMS.862).

General description. The Civic Media Codesign Studio is a service-learning, project-based studio course in collaborative design of civic media. Students partner with community-based organizations to create civic media projects grounded in real-world community needs. The course covers codesign theory and practice, including methods for community participation in iterative stages of project ideation, design, prototyping, testing, launch, and stewardship. In the Spring of 2018, this course is organized as an advanced practicum, with a strong preference for students who have an existing collaborative relationship with a community-based organization. Projects may be team-based.
