Brian’s wrap on Media 1 this semester – Wk 12 Wrap.
Rachel on the media studios for semester two (your Media 2 course).
In this session students started work on their learning graphs that need to be submitted as part of their Week 13.2 Final [Course] Reflection (20%). Details of that assessment are available here in the final page of the Reflective Portfolio Brief. The requirements of the learning graph are detailed in the Wk 12 Wrap presentation notes (above).
Here is an admittedly rough fictional sample of the Learning Graph to show you the sort of thing we are looking for. It isn’t being graded – it is more a tool to help you remember and reflect on your experience of the course. So (for a start) think of topics, exercises, discussions and assessment points and when they fell as you fill it in. You can download some blank Graph paper here or go DIY.
Rachel gave an overview of the Media studios in the second part of the sesion. Every student in Media 2 next semester will be allocated a studio (the studio is your Media 2 course). Allocation in to one of the 8 or so studios is based on your participation in an online ballot which takes place from Thursday 9 June. Keep in the loop about the ballot and access it at the MEDIA STUDIOS website. There will also an extensive FAQs doc there.
On Thursday 9th JUNE there will be presentations where current students outline what they have discovered within that semester’s studios (Media 3 + Media 5 in semester 1, 2016) AND a pitch session for the studios on offer in semester two (each studio leader talking for 5 minutes about their studio). You are strongly encouraged to attend both sessions. The online ballot for semester two studios will open immediately after the pitch presentation. (The Sem 2 Studio Pitch Booklet with one page descriptions of the studios will be available for download from the Media Studios website on that same day).
DATE Thursday 9th JUNE :: TIMES 1.30-3.20pm (ish) – Semester 1 STUDIO PRESENTATIONS :: 3.35-4.30pm – Semester 2 studio PITCH SESSION :: LOCATION 80.2.07 :: The 2016 studio coordinator is Rachel Wilson.
