Panos Panagiotopoulos presents part of a project on UK local government microblogging, a practice which has become a significant element of the public sector social media agenda. Many authorities in the UK have created Twitter accounts in an effort to update the public with frequent, concise and real-time content. The broader study described in the video is based on a study of Twitter accounts maintained by 187 officially listed UK local government authorities.

MAS.961 Seminar on Deep Engagement (MIT) MAS.961 Seminar on Deep Engagement (MIT)

Description

Innovation in expression, as realized in media, tangible objects, performance and more,  generates new questions and new potentials for human engagement. When and how does expression engage us deeply? Many personal stories confirm the hypothesis that once we experience deep engagement, it is a state we long for, remember, and want to repeat. This class will explore what underlying principles and innovative methods can ensure the development of higher-quality "deep engagement" products (artifacts, experiences, environments, performances, etc.) that appeal to a broad audience and that have lasting value over the long term.

17.955 Civil Society, Social Capital, and the State in Comparative Perspective (MIT) 17.955 Civil Society, Social Capital, and the State in Comparative Perspective (MIT)

Description

In recent years both scholars and policymakers have expressed a remarkable amount of interest in the concepts of social capital and civil society. A growing body of research suggests that the social networks, community norms, and associational activities signified by these concepts can have important effects on social welfare, political stability, economic development, and governmental performance. This discussion based course examines the roles played by these networks, norms, and organizations in outcomes ranging from local public goods provision and the performance of democracies to ethnic conflict and funding for terrorism.

Enterprise Case Study Videos - June 2010

Description

Employer engagement is a key element of many of these projects. Colleges have worked with employers as partners, used their premises for learning, and involved them as sponsors, mentors, evaluators and role models. There are also excellent examples of enterprising learning and teaching, fund raising, and embedding of enterprise activity in the curriculum. Each story is packed with collaboration, team work, innovation and energy.

Innovation in expression, as realized in media, tangible objects, performance and more,  generates new questions and new potentials for human engagement. When and how does expression engage us deeply? Many personal stories confirm the hypothesis that once we experience deep engagement, it is a state we long for, remember, and want to repeat. This class will explore what underlying principles and innovative methods can ensure the development of higher-quality "deep engagement" products (artifacts, experiences, environments, performances, etc.) that appeal to a broad audience and that have lasting value over the long term.
