Teaching Design Livre in the Global South – Showcase on Courses and Student Artwork from Brazil

Renata Aquino Ribeiro

Renata comes from the city of Quixadá in Brazil, where an increasingly recognized university has arisen in what was formerly rural Brazil. Her efforts which she highlights in this presentation involve a project to increase the involvement of the community, both students and nonstudents, in learning about technology, and learning how to design and create collaboratively various objects and processes using advanced technologies. To a large extent this involves open source solutions.
