Alpha-sensitive podcast. Zsófia Fehér’s diploma project springs from a Stefan Lengyel Excellence Scholarship research

Date: 2022.04.23
Zsófia Fehér is graduating from MOME’s Art and Design Management MA in 2022. In autumn 2021 she won the university’s Stefan Lengyel Excellence Scholarship with her project The Importance of Social Awareness Raising.

It was based on the animated short Happy After All produced at the MOME Animation department together with directors Tamás Török and Szilárd Orosz with the purpose of promoting sensitivity and mutual acceptance. 

I see the socialisation of the Alfa generation partially on digital platforms, leading to the lack of true community values and relationships as a major problem. To address this issue, I am proposing draft activities with professional advice, instructions and quality materials”, wrote Zsófia specifying her goal in her application for the Stefan Lengyel Excellence Scholarship. 

For her diploma work implementing these draft activities, she created individual podcast episodes with the contribution of experts and guests to help parents, educators, teachers and caregivers in close contact with Generation Alpha.  

In the new podcast series Educationary launched mid-April 2022, they discuss phenomena defining our society and daily lives and explore the impact of digital technologies on the mental and social development of Generation Alpha.  

The first episode featured a conversation between the host of Educationary Zoltán Laczay and therapist and father Szabolcs Bolczár about the Internet use of Generation Alpha. The main goal of the episode was to present the complexity of the subject and to explore its various layers and aspects.   

The second episode the discussion is joined by digital content creator, Youtuber and streamer Benedek Nagy (BENIIPOWA) for a close analysis of the gaming world.

The University of the Future initiative is a key focus this year, aimed at MOME’s comprehensive revitalisation. Thanks to persistent efforts over recent months, working groups have developed a detailed implementation plan for the University of the Future programme, a.k.a. the “Three Schools model”, which was unanimously accepted in December 2023. The process has now reached a new milestone: on 18 July, the Senate has pledged its support for the plan, paving the way for continued collaborative work to implement the new structure by next winter and to transform MOME into one of Europe's leading design higher education institutions.

Our University has been invited to exhibit at one of the world's most prestigious digital art festivals, the Ars Electronica 2024. Each year, the Campus series of the long-standing festival presents an art university. This year's exhibition is organised in collaboration with the University of Linz, and will feature outstanding student diploma works from recent years in Linz's main square selected by curators Judit Eszter Kárpáti, Esteban de la Torre, and Ágoston Nagy.

A new symbol has been added to the range of memorabilia that members of the MOME community can receive as they reach various milestones in their university careers. This new emblem, which reinforces a sense of belonging, is a turned and machined bronze item with a polished surface based on the letter ‘O’ in MOME’s logo. Designed by MOME MA teacher Krisztián Ádám at the initiative of Rector József Fülöp, this symbol will be awarded to all graduates at all levels along with the diplomas starting in 2024.
