Teaching City

THU Sept. 7-SUN Sept. 10, 2017, POSTCITY, Campus

An Ars Electronica Futurelab Academy @ QUT Project

Jessica Cheers (AU), Leah Gustafson (AU), Samantha Glennie (AU)

Teaching City is an experiential learning framework highlighting urban issues through playful interactions. It offers an antidote to the industrial-age pedagogy of the classroom, subverting the preconceptions of citizens through “knowledge interventions” embedded in urban spaces—the city is the teacher.

The Ars Electronica Futurelab Academy was created to support students and educators from international partner institutions in transdisciplinary practice. Since 2012, the platform has enabled collaborations between Ars Electronica and universities across the world.
