A participatory and cross-media approach to civic engagement: the experience from Medialab UGR

  1. 1. A participatory and cross-media approach to civic engagement: the experience from Medialab UGR Photo by Denys Nevozhai on Unsplash

  3. 3. http://medialab.ugr.es/what-is-ugr-medialab/
  4. 4. Medialab UGR Medialab UGR - Laboratory for the Research of Culture and Digital Society (http://medialab.ugr.es/) is a lab created in 2015 within the Vice-Rectorate for Research and Knowledge Transfer at the University of Granada. Medialab is a meeting place for the analysis, research, and dissemination of the possibilities that digital technologies create in the culture and the society in general. It develops its activities in different University spaces around the city, as well as in other places that do not belong to the institution. This distributed concept mirrors the way the Lab develops projects in the internet and connects different nodes of knowledge. It maintains fluid relationships with other institutions at a local, regional and national level.
  5. 5. Why social innovation labs? A social innovation laboratory is an instrument to think together with an experimentation and prototyping approach, combining reflection and orientation to action, thinking openly about our communities with awareness of the global, with the aim of generating responses to the complex challenges of our time, whether in neighborhoods, in public institutions, in companies, in organizations in general, in society as a whole.
  6. 6. Our social context ● Uncertainty: managing ignorance and multiple knowledge. ● Need to strengthen democracy: participation and the institutional. ● Connections on multiple dimensions: physical and digital; reconfiguration of vertical and horizontal relations. ● Integration of multiple forms of intelligence to create stronger institutions: collective, expert, algorithmic, political intelligence. ● Commitment to the local and the global. ● Ethics of care.
  7. 7. Labs Laboratories can be understood as: ● Institutions. For example: Medialab UGR, LAAAB or Medialab Prado. ● Projects. For example, those resulting from a specific call for laboratories. ● Attitude, methodology, philosophy. Types of laboratories: ● Citizen laboratories. ● Government laboratories / Govlabs. ● Living Labs. ● Fablabs / Makerspaces / Medialabs / Hacklabs. ● Other types of social laboratories.
  8. 8. Our values ● Proactivity and oriented towards action. From consumer to prosumer but within a citizen perspective. ● Culture of participation and care. ● Diversity and inclusiveness. ● Digital culture. ● Open source projects. ● Local action and global connection. Scalability. ● Different types of knowledge. ● Way of learning: process and results go hand in hand. ● Documentation of the process as part of the learning. ● Cooperation versus competition.

  13. 13. https://facultadcero.org How to redesign higher education?
  14. 14. Facultad Cero This course the Universities have had to transform their teaching in a very few days into a completely virtual model due to the lockdown imposed by COVID-19. This has allowed a multitude of teaching experiences and innovations in the digital field to emerge on a scale unthinkable just a few months ago. The 2020/21 academic year will in all probability maintain a mixed model between virtual and face-to-face teaching, so it is inevitable that we ask ourselves: how do we design the next course? In response to this, we launched the Facultad Cero (Zero Faculty) initiative, the objective of which is to generate a digital space to share experiences and organize virtual meetings to learn from the hundreds of teaching innovations that have been developed in recent months. Facultad Cero places the university faculty as protagonists in this process in order to collect and exchange experiences, both positive and negative, as well as recommendations and proposals. All of this aims to constitute a shared and dialogical learning process that allows generating knowledge in the most diverse fields of university education: teaching resources, digital platforms and tools, evaluation, emotion management, organization of activities, etc.
  15. 15. Facultad Cero All universities that wish to participate in this initiative, as well as all faculty who individually wish to do so, are called upon to participate. We also wanto to hear the voices of the students. The values of this project are: innovation, openness, collaboration, critical thinking, and a clearly proactive and constructive approach. Two main characteristics: ● Bottom-up approach to complement the institutional approach. ● Participatory approach.

  28. 28. UGR en casa || UGR at home LabIN #UGRenCasa is an initiative of the University of Granada in order to create a meeting space for the university community and citizens in order to: ● propose ideas to live better during these weeks of lockdown; and ● share experiences on how this crisis has affected our lives and what we can learn from it for the future. You can follow us on Twitter @medialabugr and @UGRenCasa, where we will collect everything that is published with this hashtag #UGRenCasa; as well as through Instagram @ medialabugr. You can also send us your audios or videos through the public channel on Telegram #UGRenCasa or send us an email to ugrencasa@labingranada.org.

  34. 34. Knowmetrics Network The Knowmetrics Network for Digital Social Sciences and Humanities is a network with an academic focus aimed at giving visibility and recognition to these emerging lines of research. Through the RAQMYAT project it is extended to the French-speaking community. It is an open, independent and free network whose objective is to give visibility to the work of the academic community in the area of Digital Humanities in order to enhance the value of research through digital media and encourage collaborations. It combines two approaches: ● Traditional approach, fundamentally quantitative and focused on contributions in classic formats: article, book, etc. Google Scholar has been taken as a benchmark so that a researcher, having a profile on this network, can automatically incorporate their contributions and metrics. ● Digital approach, so that each researcher can upload digital artifacts describing and visualizing their work. It also allows the inclusion of profiles of other non-scientific digital networks, particularly Twitter. The network generates a global map that allows researchers and their projects to be geolocated.
