Læringsmål:Having completed the course, the student should be able to:

- Discuss classical and modern theories of innovation including their relevance for analysing the development of information and communication technologies.
- Analyse and critically reflect over the challenges and complexities of innovation including issues of governance, regulation, power, ethics and politics.
- Apply different perspectives within the sociology and economics of science and innovation to particular cases.
- Put into perspective the different concepts, tools, business models and theories related to openness and open innovation appreciating the wider socioeconomic context.
- Reflect upon the practical implications of innovation strategies and models with a focus on insights from contemporary organizational settings.
- Situate innovation within political economy and power politics 
Fagligt indhold:Reassembling innovation will provide you with a range of theoretical perspectives and methodological tools to critically approach, understand and analyse complex entanglements between IT, innovation and society. Along with the theoretical exploration, emphasis will be also given on the organizational strategy and design within open ecosystems. In this emerging era of decentralization and networked collaboration, reassembling the pieces of innovation is an imperative for all types of organizations (private, public, NGOs and social enterprises). The course will, among other things, enable you to reflect upon your own role as active participant in future technological and societal developments, as well as to reflect on the politics and values embedded in the design and use of technologies. 

.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).

In the 15 Point version of the course, compared to the 7.5 ECTS-version, the students participate in extra guidance and seminar activities. More specifically they receive more extended supervision during seminar sessions, where the students will have the opportunity to present the progress of their project. The seminar sessions will be organized in thematic weeks, covering different parts of the project.
