To reach a deeper understanding of their research subjects, students freely draw on theoretical, practical, and professional knowledge. Hands-on learning is a cornerstone of the CCT Program, be it digital or analog, inside or outside the classroom, independent or in groups.
CCT nurtures an ecosystem of experimentation and implementation, and students regularly make and test prototypes as a form of methodological inquiry. For this, they make use of the extensive range of equipment, facilities, and training available at Lauinger Library's Gelardin New Media Center as well as CCT's own Technology Design Studio, which houses technologies for making and hacking, media production and presentation, education and experimentation.
