hello, fine students. tyler here.
we still have three seats for an elective i'm teaching that will focus heavily on self-authored, public design. if this sounds interesting to you, please go sign up! i'm quite excited about the potential for this class.
here's the course description:
this comunity arts and service learning (casl) course will explore the question “how can narrative design create a sense of community, solidarity, and interpersonal interaction?” as a way to understand this question the class will primarily engage in creating community-focused project work. supplemental readings, lectures, and discussions will address topics such as narrative structures, interviewing, the media-distribution-audience relationship, empathic design, and the “new urbanism” movement, among others.
