  • The standard, layout, copy and photos, are in my opinion, not to the high finished standard our third year students have produced.

    1. 1. Tertiary Learning and Teaching Conference Oct 2-4th 2013 Southern Institute of Technology
    2. 2. Technology and Teaching: A case study of software-enhanced enquiry-based learning across academic pathways Georgie Gaddum
    3. 3. Design always starts with a problem PROBLEM: How can institutions such as Wintec, mimic current best practice in a communication based industry?
    4. 4. ANSWER: By utilising the graphic design, advertising, photography and journalism third year students and placing them in an industry based project.
    5. 5. HOW: • Wintec set up a possible solution to this problem, by utilising an New Zealand based annual event, conveniently placed in the Waikato at the end of Semester one. • This provides a wider range of content as it’s a national annual farming event held at Mystery Creek Event Centre. • Create a daily magazine for each day that the Fieldays event runs, documenting the daily going’s on and updates of stall holders showcasing a business or idea at the Fieldays. • Make this project count towards our third year students final grades.
    6. 6. How did it start? • The first Fielday’s Exhibitor started in 2004 • A four page per day Newspaper (1 page folded in half) • Wintec’s Ad Agency at the time created an easy to fill template
    7. 7. Since then… • Every year since 2004, the Fieldays Exhibitor has been produced by Wintec students, supported by staff. • There have always been a combination of third year graphic design, photography and journalism students. But within the last two years, web components have been added to the project. • This project has been written into the degree as a measurable outcome for students in a third year elective paper – Internship.
    8. 8. My, how things have changed THEN: The Fieldays Exhibitor’s goal was to achieve a newspaper that was on par to what came out of an industry based newsroom or agency. NOW: The Fieldays Exhibitor has increasingly become a vehicle to utilise multi- media capabilities which is largely driven by the ever changing technology It format has also been replicated for other local newspaper businesses…
    9. 9. First edition layout 2004 • Simple layout with limited space for movement. • Just drop text and images into the template.

    25. 25. 2012 Rebranding the logo • Students help to re design the template each year. • Part of Georgie’s challenge, was to include the 4 third year graphic design students in the new logo design…
    26. 26. Layout exploration
    27. 27. • Without intending it, we became a ‘field classroom’, which is used to test student’s capabilities half way through their last year. • They have to deal with real life problems such as deadlines, CMYK, file sizes, pre-press, what’s online and what’s not, keeping up with current events with platforms changing constantly due to media outputs updating.
    28. 28. 2012 - 2013 layout changes: 2013 students were put to the test to come up with a fresh new look, with more of a Wintec presence.
    29. 29. Student’s perspective • They enjoy the full week of intense learning. • The project is viewed by fresh student eyes each year. • They get to re invent the visual identity each year. • They are teamed up with other students from other areas and experience an industry based learning project.
    30. 30. Tutor’s perspective • They enjoy the end of the week of intense learning! • It becomes more and more complex each year with ever changing technology – have to know how to implement the different ways to view the exhibitor. • They get to experience a new visual identity each year. • It’s a chance to work with tutors from other areas within Wintec. • Becomes a great teaching tool for working in regular classes with the contacts and experience.
    31. 31. Industries' perspective • Use local businesses to help to produce the exhibitor • Can inform third year students of the importance of pre press files and deadlines. • It’s a chance to work with tutors from Wintec to advise best practices in new ways to be in line with industry. • Other local newspapers have picked up the same idea, only through a real newsroom – Waikato Times and Rural Press which opened a competition to our Exhibitor newspaper called The Fieldaily, which we took as a great compliment!
    32. 32. In conclusion • A successful daily newspaper produced by Wintec students and staff will go on for years to come.
