screen-shot-2013-10-20-at-19-56-00The summer school is a five day intensive programme that is

organised around 4 areas of research/interest:
• face to face interaction
• moving image and digital film production
• text making in digital and online environments (blogs, forums and websites)
• embodied cognition and interaction with tangible and mobile devices 
We draw on examples from a range of different research sites, including hospitals, schools, museum galleries and online platforms. The technologies we explore include digital video recording devices and editing tools, Web 2.0 technologies, and mobile, tangible and sensor technologies.

The MODE summer school 2014 attracted a great group of 30 academics from around the world – including Hong Kong, the UK, Croatia, Luxemburg, Poland, Italy, Spain, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Australia, and the USA. The range of research interests was broad – including interaction design, interpretation, migration, hip hop performances by hearing impaired students, digital story telling, language learning, media and literacy, texting and translanguaging, teacher education, art therapy, and focusing in on a range of textual artefacts – music manuscripts, video games, business and academic presentations amongst others.

Along side this we had a number of social events and even caught up with the starting phases of the World Cup.

A set of resources including Power Point presentations, and video lecturers developed for the day will be made available on the MODE website in the coming months.

The Summer School 2014 programme is available here: Summer School Programme 2014

The programme and dates for the MODE Summer School 2015 are now confirmed for 15-19th June, but the application process and registration will not open until early next year.
