Key Benefits • We draw on a wide range of expertise, offering insights into curatorial and archival practices of dealing with digital assets as well as into technologies and wider socio-economic questions such as rights and project management. • The course tutors offer unrivalled expertise in technologies and processes that allow the quick and efficient storage, retrieval and reuse of digital assets. They come from a diverse and highly interdisciplinary background, having run digital archives or worked in the digital industries in the past. • Through the optional internship module students can have direct access to some of the world’s most important culture and media institutions. • Close links and regular speakers from the content sector give students insights and up-to-the-minute knowledge of the subject area.

  14. 14. @SimonTanner Dissertations: very varied topics  How accessible are current online, public, domains of museums?  The effect of globalization on the management of digital records in national archives: a study focusing on how practices and policies for national archives in Western developed nations affect expectations of initiatives in emerging market economies  Measuring the value of the UK Web Archive  What is the universal value of the cultural heritage industry under the Macao government policy?  Investigation into whether the implementation on the EU-wide General Data Protection Regulation on May 25 2018 improves the ability for website users to provide informed consent before their personal data is collected?  How do we define digital transformation and what affect does it have on business models within the media industry?  How is social media influencing users' experience in public libraries  How does an established company build a digital culture to ensure effective management in the attention economy?
  15. 15. @SimonTanner Digital Humanities culture  Interdisciplinary  Students encouraged to think across disciplinary boundaries  Mixed methods research the norm  London based  Big attractor for our students  Linked to local business and cultural organisations  Extra-curricula visits to museums, libraries, concerts and performances  Industry panels  DAM practitioners and experts  Media and digital content experts  How digital affects humans and humans effect digital.
  16. 16. @SimonTanner “Challenges”  Too big  Core course: 1 lecture = 14 seminars  Too high a proportion of students from one region creates a mono-culture  Volume makes it more difficult to innovate in teaching methods  Dissertation supervision over the summer, marking in October  Practice based teaching problematic  Don’t do hands on DAM system training  Trying to link to King’s Archives and KDL for internships and experience building  Too big for computer lab work to be feasible – but still try to give practical projects and experiences  Finding academics with the combination of high academic research and teaching skills combined with “industry” work experience to teach these subjects
