These are the topics for my lecture today at the “New Media and Innovation Management” Workshop, organized by Tallinn University’s Baltic Film and Media School and the Stockholm School of Economics in Riga.
The theme of the lecture is Multimedia Project Management, which will be centered around a generic new media project proposal.
From 2007 to 2010, I taught 4 editions of the Multimedia Authoring course at Media Lab Helsinki, University of Art and Design Helsinki (now Aalto University, School of Arts, Design and Architecture). Between 2007 and 2009, I taught only half of the course. The course focused on interactive and generative media development, and the technology adapted for my component of the course in that period was Adobe Flash.
In February 2008, I was invited to give a series of lectures on Interaction Design at Hyper Island, a leading Swedish new media institute, with programs in Stockholm and Karlskrona. The invitation came through the company I was working at the time, digital agency Fjord. I was impressed by the way the Hyper Island programs were organized, with extensive industry connections. I was also positively impressed by the facilities (very modern and flexible in Stockholm, a renewed world heritage site in Karlskrona), and by the drive, motivation and creativity of the students. The Karlskrona lecture took place 19/2/2008, the Stockholm lectures 20-21/2/2008.
In 10/2007, I taught an intensive 5 days Multimedia Authoring course at the Estonian Academy of Arts in Tallinn. It was mainly a introductory Flash course. In the end, the students presented their small projects or prototypes.
