Additionally our partners will pay you a monthly stipend of €400,=. For tuition fees and other information check our website.
What you will be doing
During the 20 weeks that you are at Digital Society School you will work on a project supplied by one of partners. These projects are clustered around themed Tracks: ‘Systems for Sharing’, 'Edtech for Social Justice' and ‘Design Across Cultures’. At the end you will present an prototype solution to the challenge posed. In addition you will participate in workshops, masterclasses and personal coaching to get you ready for the next step in your career.
Challenges that you will face include translating the wishes of our parter to a concrete end result that not only caters to what they want but ideally delivers what they need. Managing the workflow in an autonomous team with very diverse backgrounds. And coping with unforseeable circumstances.
