Oxford Training Sessions on the Modern Information Society no 3.

The Oxford Training Sessions discuss innovative uses of information technology in Estonia and elsewhere to identify, clarify, and model how changing configurations in cyberspace influence the structures and processes of political systems within and across national borders. Classroom lectures and discussion are designed to allow students to relate information society issues with their primary studies in other fields. Practical simulation exercises enable students to translate this new knowledge into concrete insights and recommendations for professional action.

 

The course is specifically designed for university students working in non-IT fields at all levels of instruction (BA, Diploma, Masters, PhD). No previous IT or computer science training is required to enrol. Students specializing in IT fields are also welcome to attend the course. Non-students may be allowed to enroll subject to space limitations.
