Institutional Presentation Statement
HyperStudio is a Swiss center for research and production in the field of interactive media based in Basel. After years, it became a collaboratory, where interactive tools are use for supporting teamwork and creative group processes. The goal is to use the tools and structures of interactive media to support the transformation of institutions in the information society.
HYPERWERK: THE CHALLENGE
Since spring ´99 a three-year course of graduate studies are offered to look at the challenges of knowledge acquistion, management, organization and retrieval. After graduation our students will leave with the title of ´interaction manager´ with the important and difficult purpose of transforming organizations into learning organizations. They develop new tools and methods for supporting teamwork under asynchronous and decentral conditions.
