Review Previous Course Iterations & Syllabi



In this class we'll use history and readings to not only understand the current state of the information field, but how we got here. Seeing that, students will understand that they have the power to shape and improve the information field. Students will also work in in-class teams to cement ideas and connect to other students in the class. We work to answer the question of why UX designers, archivists, AI ethicists, and librarians are all in the same graduate program. Ultimately the goal is to connect, understand, and inspire.


The attached syllabus is a draft from fall 2020 to give you a sense of the topics but these topics are subject change for spring 2021. An updated version will be posted as soon as it is available.
