Lecture information: Editorial Designing in the Media 2014


This is an introductory lecture (Faculty of Engineering, common subject: 2 credits) on becoming a conscious and creative media communicator.
It is said that we are moving from an era when we relied on information communication and advertising experts, to an age when anyone who can express their consciousness becomes "media". In such an Information Society, what is the best way to build knowledge with value?

In this lecture, the participants will attend lectures and workshops, and you will learn how to configure the media. We will introduce the methods of "design edit". "Design edit" is also called "content design", so it produces contents (ideas and opinions), and also work on incorporating visibility into the content and design.

This exercise, is specifically a topic of "looking for Soft Sciences", aimed at writing articles, mutual editing, design and media expressions.

The "Soft Science" here is the handing of people and things, questions about the relationship between things (soft relationship science). Last year the same titled experiment was tested out, and those wishing to participate can find the "Soft Science" referred to here.

While cross-editing designs, you will make a presentation on the last day.
You will get experience of the process of putting together your ideas, and leaping into and reaching the audience.

This is a course for students who see media and public relations and product design fields as important. Also note that it is desirable to continue with the second semester, the "Approaches to Creative Expression(1 credit)".
