COM 6220 2012 Course Overview
Transcript of COM 6220 2012 Course Overview
Plan Week 3 Week 1 Week 2 You’ll get connected and set up on the course site, introduce yourself and review the syllabus and overall course plan. This week we explore online communication and the emergence of a field of study known as Computer Mediated Communication (CMC). We explore ways that networked communication technology can be used for conflict escalation/deescalation and the advancement OR suppression of human rights.
We read the novel Little Brother while digging into some of the issues related to conflicts over technology, security, privacy and the social worlds of "digital natives" and "digital immigrants." Week 4 We dig into current uses of technology to wage conflict or to try and reduce the human costs of social conflict after it has emerged. Students begin work on individual digital advocacy designs addressing a social problem/conflict of interest. Week 5 We'll review the basics of communication theory and arguments relating to how it may or may not be appropriate for Alternative Dispute Resolution tasks. We’ll also start the process of forming groups for the group presentations later in the course. Week 6 This week we will look a bit more at the historical development of ODR, including the development of the concept of technology as "the Fourth Party" at the ADR table. We experience E-Negotiation done via Email and Chat Create Advocacy Plans with Images and Audio narration Week 7 We'll think together about the current scope of ODR and the kinds of conflicts that are seen as appropriate.
