Teaching enlightens the teachers.

Unraveling the Tapestry of Social Media’s Evolution

Have you ever paused to consider how social media has evolved into the behemoth it is today? The journey from its infancy to the present is nothing short of remarkable. As we embark on a new academic venture, I’m thrilled to share insights from my latest course, which welcomes over 300 students into the fascinating world of social media’s history and current dynamics.

The Depth of Understanding Through Lecturing

With a tenure spanning two decades at Vienna University’s Department of Science and Communication, my academic journey has been rich with exploration and discovery. Teaching is more than just a profession; it’s a pathway to deep understanding. There’s a profound difference between thinking you know a subject and teaching it. The latter demands a deeper dive, challenging your grasp and compelling a more thorough exploration.

This intensive engagement has not only deepened my understanding but has also fueled my daily interactions on platforms such as Instagram, X, Threads, Pinterest, and Facebook. The rich tapestry of social media becomes even more intricate when viewed through the lens of academic scrutiny.

A Unique Blend of Exclusivity and Openness

While the intimate setting of seminars remains exclusive to those enrolled at Austrian universities, my lectures break down these barriers, inviting the wider community to partake in our journey of discovery. This blend of exclusivity and openness enriches the educational experience, extending the invitation to learn far beyond the university’s walls.

Expanding the Classroom: Streaming on Twitch

In an exciting turn of events, I’m taking the classroom to the digital realm. Today, I will streamed live on Twitch, making capacity constraints a thing of the past.

If your curiosity about social media’s origins and its transformative journey has ever piqued your interest, today’s Twitch stream is an opportunity you won’t want to miss. The recording is available on my Youtube channel.

Join the exploration and deepen your understanding of the digital landscape that surrounds us.
