Session of MSc1 Media Studies course, on topic of "Cognition, People and Design"
- Lecture one: A 4EA Cognitive Approach for Rethinking the Human in Interactive Spaces (by Xin Xia)
Xin Xia obtained Master of Fine Arts in Visual Art Studies from the Dutch Art Institute in 2002. In 2003, she obtained Master of Arts in Film and Television Studies from the International School for Humanities and Social Sciences (ISHSS), Amsterdam University. Her research was focused on Cognitive Film Theory and Contemporary Video Art Installations. In 2005 she joined Hyperbody as a researcher, started from organizing the GameSetandMatch II conference. Later on, besides working on publications, protoSPACE Art projects coordinating and events organizing, she was working as coordinator for Media Studies course, and for Literature and Media course. Her own research, which is trying to bridge the fields of interactive architecture studies and cognitive psychology, is titled “A 4EA Cognitive Approach for Rethinking the Human in Interactive Spaces”. She is becoming a PHD candidate in Leiden University in 2012.
- Lecture two: Designing (for) the Embodiment of Cognition (by Jelle Van Dijk)
Jelle van Dijk graduated in cognitive science at the Radboud University Nijmegen in 2000. He worked at the F.C. Donders Centre for cognitive neuroimaging (Nijmegen) where he developed experience in EEG and fMRI experimentation. He then switched to become one of the founders of the Human Technology course at the Haagse Hogeschool, focusing on better integration of the 'human' and the 'engineering' worlds. One of his continuing interests is in the relation between mind, brain, body, and the environment. In his Phd project Jelle researches the design of two interactive prototypes supporting processes of shared insight formation in groups during creative meetings. Next to his research, Jelle teaches interactive media product design & engineering at Hogeschool Utrecht.
