Teaching will consist of a mixture of lectures, video screenings and exercises while the students will investigate historical or topical cases that problematize the complex relationships underlying the innovation making process. Lectures provide theoretical foundations and walk-through examples of the entanglement of society with innovation development. The course will be taught as a lecture where the teacher will steer the discussion, but the students are expected to actively participate and co-create the lecture. The exercises focus on students discussing and applying the central concepts in group work, role play, student presentations, lectures, feedback, plenum debate, social media experiments and in writing. It will therefore be a combination of instructor-led sessions, small group discussions and exercises. It is highly recommended that students participate actively in the different elements of the lecture (preparation, online discussions, discussions in the lectures and exercises).
