Program Description:

Students engage with the human-centred approach to design of the Knowledge Media Design Institute (KMDI), an approach that puts people at the heart of its practice. Students are involved in the design and use of new media in the context of real world practices of individuals and communities. Access to our collaborative and cross-disciplinary faculty encourages students to take a broader view of technological and social change and to be constructively critical of both technological utopians and dystopians. The goal is for students to take into account heritage and history, to understand the realities of today, and to design for tomorrow.
