Internet Citizenship

Internet Citizenship is UC Berkeley's first online digital humanities course, a mini-MOOC with 100-200 students.

I served as a lead lecturer, researcher, course designer, and helped develop the course's digital architecture. 

 

Greg Niemeyer, Ashley Ferro-Murray and myself devised this course to teach New Media design and social impact, working from the disciplines of Computer Science, Social Science, and Arts Practice. 

 

A "maker" course focused on digital literacy, this class utilized both asynchronous and live interactions, via video chat sessions. We deployed a "flipped" classroom, pre-recording lectures. 

 

In 2012, we were awarded a research grant from a HASTAC-MacArthur Foundation partnership to research the impact of this virtual classroom.  

 

In subsequent years, I have re-developed this class to focus on IT Development in Africa and the Developing World.
