Week 5 seminar (theme 2)

Theme discussion

For our second seminar, we’ll go a bit deeper into Theme 2 by discussing the relationship between technology and society through the lens of race, gender and disability. You’ll be using the “talking points” you’ve prepared with your learning group during Week 4.

You can prepare for this as much as you like (by preparing a short presentation with your group, for example) and make as formal or informal as you want (you can also simply “show” the rest of the seminar what your group’s Mural is composed of and walk us through it). 

The purpose of this seminar is for you to share with other groups what you’ve been up to, and to get some feedback from them (and me), allowing you to reflect on how you structure arguments, connect them to theory, etc – all important criteria for your assessment. 

NB: The original intent was for each seminar to have each group do a formal 15 min presentation to the other. However, due to the way groups have been mixed up, and to reduce your time spent on this module, we’ll do something more ‘discussion’ based and less formal. You can still prepare something more ‘formal’ to be presented if you’d like some feedback on it.
