TU Berlin Summer & Winter University
Campus Full time June 2017 Germany Berlin

The effects of technology on individuals, society and nature and what people can do to create a responsible technology that addresses the needs of everyone while considering possible risks and harms caused by technology. [+]

Summer University block 1: June 12th - July 6th, 2017 Course price: 1.850 Euros 18 hours of class sessions per week, 5 ECTS credit points Topic The effects of technology on individuals, society and nature and what people can do to create a responsible technology that addresses the needs of everyone while considering possible risks and harms caused by technology. Target group Engineering students and students of the humanities with an interest in the workings of technology on individuals, society and nature. Learning Goal/Output The prospective engineers analyze and evaluate the present reciprocal relations of technology, individuals, nature and society by taking different perspectives. Based on this analysis and evaluation, they are able to state their personal perspective and values of the reciprocal relations and act accordingly. The prospective engineers cooperate with others to analyze and evaluate in a democratic process the present reciprocal relations of technology, individuals, nature and society. Based on their analysis and evaluation, they are able to work out a collective understanding with regard to their collective values and democratise the reciprocal relations. Course Components The course will consist of a few regular lectures and mostly of building blocks which will be conducted by the lectures and the student’s themselves and one excursion per week (e.g. waste/drinking water treatment, recycling, lignite pit and lignite power plant, industrial food production). In addition, the students will create, conduct and finally document their own building block for further use. Building blocks, i.e., self-contained study-elements, are at the core of... [-]
