Technological innovation is a genuinely social process: people matter. New technologies are made and used by people. Conversely, technologies are shaping people, society, economy, politics, world views, and culture. Technologies and societies coevolve, in the past, currently 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. Taken together the course sheds light on options and limitations of the conscious shaping of technology in society.
