Digital University : A Dialogue and Manifesto (New) (Hardcover) (Michael Adrian Peters & Petar Jandric)
about this item
The Digital University: A Dialogue and Manifesto focuses on teaching, learning, and research in the age of the digital reason and their relationships to the so-called knowledge economy. The first part of the book, ‘The University in the Epoch of Digital Reason,’ presents the authors’ insights into the nature of the contemporary university. The second part, ‘Collective Intelligence and the Co-creation of Social Goods,’ explores various collective ways of knowledge creation, dissemination, and education. The final part, ‘Digital Teaching, Digital Learning and Digital Science,’ presents an ongoing series of one-to one dialogues between Michael Adrian Peters and Petar Jandric about philosophy of education in the age of digital reason, relationships between learning, creative col(labor)ation, and knowledge cultures, digital reading, digital self, digital being, radical openness, creative labour, and the co-production of symbolic goods. Situated in, against, and beyond the current state of affairs, the book ends with the Digital University Manifesto, which explores what is to be done in and for a better future of the digital university.
