  • In year one most of the teaching and critiquing is oral. In EMT the key assessment mode remains oral.
    In year two the ability to write about what you are doing, trying, and achieving is developed. And assessed.

  • in year one the readings show that it is possible to write and think about these questions. That abstractions around concrete media objects and practices are possible. Given the oral mode much of this material may appear supplementary.
    in year two the reading is more strongly integrated and forms an integral part of assessment. The assessment is directly relevant to the reading/s. Here the theory gets applied by using it in a work (essay, media object).
    in year three students could be invited to use a theory or idea as the basis for a work or a project. Or they could be invited to use particular theories to explain or contextualise what they are doing. It is important to remember that what they are learning might be not so much theory x or y, but

    17. 17. 2. Mapping of skills and outcomes across courses/year/strands levels (60 – 90 min?) (This is to see what we are all teaching, how things align between courses and year levels, and to help work out if a) we are doing what we think we are, b) we are getting ourselves and students where we think and want, c) to see what replication, duplication, or even reinforcing we can do, and d) what we should be doing but aren’t. For this to work we will need a list of learning outcomes for the subjects that each of us teach. These can be specific (how to write basic HTML) but should also be generalisable (develop literacies to allow basic Web based competencies in writing and customising web based material – pages, blogs, templates, etc). Often it works best if you work backwards – what the general outcomes are, and then what specific learning outcomes or activities achieve this. The general is important since it is what lets us see what crosses over into each area. For example “using a camera” doesn’t tell us much but “being able to record and edit AV media to a n level” is something that might be relevant to several subjects (not only technical ones). The mapping exercise should produce a list come map of competencies/ outcomes across each year level, from that point we may also find new things to add (assuming we are doing what we think we are and it is working…?) This is also an opportunity to identify where various new initiatives may fit, for example the University interdisciplinary courses, possible collaborations with other partners, and so on. adrian.miles@rmit.edu.au
