Student as Producer is hacking the university http://studentasproducer.lincoln.ac.uk

LNCD is (was) Not a Central Development group! DevXS hackathon (2011) http://lncd.lincoln.ac.uk/ project/institutional-opennesscase-study http://devxs.org.uk

Digital Education 1.  A cross-university digital education group (a committee, working group, network?) 2.  Incentives and recognition (teacher education leading to credit and funding) 3.  An anti-disciplinary Masters research programme (the ‘university as a hackerspace’) 4.  A framework for re-engineering space and time (the ‘idea of the university’: open, flipped, virtual, edgeless, etc.) http://joss.blogs.lincoln.ac.uk/2014/03/03/digital-education/

‘The university as a hackerspace’ •  Cross-university Masters by Research degree •  The ‘campus’ = the ‘hackerspace’ (virtual/material/ open/edgeless) •  Anti-disciplinary: Democratically involves staff and facilities from across all schools •  Experiments/challenges, not ‘modules’; Hacker ethic. •  Student as Producer: Research-based; teachers and students learn from each other. The institution learns from its teacher-student scholars. A ‘Skunkworks’ for the institution. •  Can a university contain (intellectually, politically, practically) a hackerspace? Are the two organisational and educational forms compatible?
