Future of Media 2013 line-up

My project course DM2571 "Future of Media" went though a phase shift two weeks ago when we moved from the start-up phase to the project phase of the course. This time last year I took the opportunity to write a blog post that listed all the great guest lecturers we had heard in the course. I'm doing it again. 

We change the theme in the course every year and this year's theme is "The Future of News / News of the Future". Last year's theme was "The Future of Magazines / Magazines of the Future".

Below is the 2013 line-up of our (no less than 19!) great guests lectures. Ten different student project groups will present their visions of the future in the form of a larger (250+ persons) public presentation (welcome!) between 13-16 in the lecture hall Q1 on Thursday December 12, 2013.

We unfortunately had a few guests cancel their lectures, and there was one person I really would have wanted to listen to, but alas, in the end it turned out to be too difficult to get her to visit us. 

During the previous month, I have written one additional text on this blog that relates to the this year's Future of Media course: Handbook for project-based courses. Two more texts that I wrote last year is still however very relevant: - How should student project groups be put together? and Student project groups - ambitions and grades.
