Aims and objectivesThe aim of this subject is to allow students to plan, design and execute the creation of a substantial media project. It aims to enhance the students' capability in applying research and reflection in the process of producing innovative media products.
Generic skills outcomes
Students are expected to develop a number of graduate attributes, resulting in graduates who are:
- Capable in their chosen professional areas.
- Entrepreneurial in contributing to innovation and development within their business, workplace or community.
- Operate effectively and ethically in work and community situations.
- Adaptable and manage change.
- Aware of local and international environments.
Students undertaking a media project are supervised in both the design and implementation of a product of their choice (for example, a radio documentary or an electronic journal) targeted and delivered to a client. This subject is designed to extend the skills acquired by students in radio and electronic writing and to provide an opportunity for students to gain experience in the workplace and to work independently as freelance practitioners. Attention will be paid to the presentation and marketing of the project. Students will be encouraged to undertake group projects so that they can develop their abilities to work as part of a team. They will also be asked to review and reflect on their own and their peers projects as part of their assessment.
