Media design and production entail a social responsibility that should not be underestimated. Media creators use signs and technologies to create exemplary access to the world and its aesthetic representation. They thus have a great influence on the world views and preferences of media users. For this reason, it is necessary for media professionals to have the reflective competence in addition to practical skills. The course provides a functional set of concepts and analytical tools that allow for an application-oriented examination of the relationship between media, signs, design and society.
Fee (course 1 only): EUR 250,00
The connection of media theory and technical competence is the access to a comprehensive media education. Only one’s own creative work with image, sound and editing sensitizes for multimodal narration and enables a critical distance, which is necessary for an evaluation of and dealing with media. The course teaches core technical skills for creating an audio-visual contribution. The focus is on hands-on learning, which enables participants to create their own media product within the classroom workshops.
