About the event
The New School of Digital Communication at FGV invites the community to a special schedule for the German Language Week (GLW), happening on Saturday, April 15, from 9am to 5pm. FGV ECMI has prepared an exclusive program for the day, with a stand, a guided tour of the school’s premises, and workshops designed to explore the German language based on Digital Communication topics.
Entry for the workshops organized by the labs and the FGV ECMI tour is limited, so make sure to enroll!
Sprechen Workshop – Creative Audiovisual Dialogues
11am - 12:20pm Have you ever experienced an unusual situation related to the German language? Have you considered creating a video based on that experience?
The Sprechen Workshop – Creative Audiovisual Dialogues invites participants to build a creative audiovisual narrative by developing a video from script to editing, using the process of learning the German language as the background.
Tour of the School of Digital Communication
2:30pm - 3:15pm The tour is an opportunity to get acquainted with the School of Communication, Media and Information at Fundação Getulio Vargas (FGV ECMI). Through a guided visit to FGV ECMI’s premises, the professors will present the school’s space, including its three laboratories:
1) DAPP Lab: an applied research lab with its own methodology for analyzing the debate on public policies in digital environments; 2) Innovation Cube: an experimental research lab with games, immersive technologies, and artificial intelligence; 3) Media Lab: A pace for students to develop audiovisual projects. In addition to exploring the school’s space, the visit will include a quick explanation of the pedagogical proposal and the curriculum of the undergraduate course in Digital Communication.
Spielen Workshop: Playing with culture
3:30pm - 4:50pm The Spielen Workshop: Playing with culture will offer participants and CUBE researchers a way to collectively construct processes for the critical analysis of games as media products, reflecting on how their cultural and grammatical aspects, as well as their concepts, perceptions and dynamics, help construct the culture of different peoples and communities.
The primary goal is to establish the videogame video as an environment that is capable of offering an approximation between different cultural and social elements in different countries speaking Germanic languages: Germany, Austria, Belgium, Switzerland and Luxembourg. With that, the workshop will also introduce its participants to the production of a gaming repertoire and experience, enabling contact and experimentation with productions made and/or set in the above Germanic countries.
