Re: <nettime> Perhaps a way of teaching media


I also teach new media to graduate and undergraduate students and 
find that the best students augment a relatively traditional set of 
design course offerings with their own blogs, going to conferences, 
forming mentorships in and outside of the department and creating 
experimental work as independent studies-roughly the same activities 
Julian mentioned.
