Estão de volta os workshops mais fantásticos do Mundo!!!!! (pelo menos como participante na edição de 2008 é o que penso).
A prestigiada Universidade do Texas-Austin traz a Portugal alguns dos seus docentes para dar formações nas mais variadas áreas ligadas aos media digitais. São praticamente de borla e mesmo muito muito bons, e decorrem este ano na Universidade do Porto e na Faculdade de Ciências Sociais e Humanas da Universidade Nova, em Lisboa.
Eu nunca mais fui o mesmo depois de ter feito o meu, fiquei melhor! As minhas impressões do ano passado podem ser lidas aqui , aqui, aqui, aqui, aqui e aqui. Já vos disse que achei o workshop fantástico?
