Following the success of last year’s event, MODE will be running a 5-day Summer School again from 16-20th June 2014.
In this intensive 5-day course we introduce multimodal methods for analysing communication and learning with digital technologies.
We introduce four theoretical perspectives: social action; moving image and film; design, genre and interactivity; and embodied cognition and interaction. We explore these perspectives through interactional, ethnographic, semiotic, narrative and x analysis of a range of different environments, including hospitals, schools, galleries and online platforms. The technologies we explore include digital video devices, Web 2.0 technologies, and mobile and tangible devices.
The course will be led by Jeff Bezemer, Carey Jewitt, Andrew Burn, Myrrh Domingo, Rosie Flewitt, Gunther Kress, Sara Price, Mona Sakr and Kate Cowan.
