Does digital communication connect or isolate audiences? Do we fully understand the psychological impacts smartphones have on society? Is corporate social responsibility being co-opted by big business and the political elite? And do demonstrations in Hong Kong represent anti-China sentiment, or are they part of a larger class struggle?
QUT Creative Industries Research Seminar presents German Perspectives on Social Media in Political Communication, featuring Professor Christoph Neuberger and Doctor Christian Nuernbergk of Ludwig-Maximilians-University, Munich.
The first day of Creative3 ended on a high note. Virgin Australia’s Christopher Stubbs provided a masterclass on internal innovation systems, explaining how to develop an outside-in mind-set that places the customer at the centre of business decisions.
Ideas can and should be tested quickly and iteratively: why spend a lot of money adding salad to your airline menu when you can test the product on a small scale with a few flights? Christopher advocated for design-led innovation to become an essential part of company culture.
Does technology allow us to better communicate with others, or are relationships becoming increasingly lost through digitised connections?
The latest QUT Shape of Things to Come exhibition, [dis]connect, plays with ideas of connection, interaction, engagement and intersection. We live in a world where objects can influence society in new and profound ways, and our graduates’ work grapples with these notions of rippling relationships.
Welcome to the first episode of Contagious, the QUT Creative Industries research podcast.
