Social Media, Crowdsourcing and Citizen Sensing

Social Media, Crowdsourcing and Citizen Sensing Course Overview

This module aims to develop both your critical understanding and your practical skill relating to emergent platforms such as social media, crowdsourcing and citizen sensing.

While society comes to rely on these platforms and algorithms for 'truth claims', we will question the way they construct knowledge. We will examine their unnoticed or invisible aspects, and consider how to use them for different purposes. As these socio-technical assemblages always have the potential to harm as well as to help, and we will pay attention to their ethical application.

The emphasis of this module is not on technical proficiency but on the ability to make meaning through the use of different forms of online apparatus. The teaching will combine lectures and practical experimentation.
