Description

Technological change is a genuinely social process: people matter. New technologies are made, used and maintained by people. Conversely, technologies are shaping people, society, economy, politics, world views, as well as moral and cultural norms. Technologies and societies coevolve, currently, in the past, and in the future. In the form of lectures and hands-on exercises, participants of this course will learn how to understand, evaluate and shape this dynamic in a socially and ethically responsible way. The course Technology&Society is taught by an enthusiast team of governance and innovation scholars, philosophers, and historians from the University of Twente and international guest lecturers. The course Technology&Society is led and coordinated by dr Andreas Weber (Department of Science, Technology, and Policy Studies) and dr Jan Bergen (Department of Philosphy).
