Subject Description
This subject introduces students to the process of media convergence, emphasising the way in which digital media driven technological change is accompanied by changes in the way we work, socialise and communicate. We focus on the emergent media dynamics of this process, and their effects on audiences, media platforms, and industries. Students will establish and start developing an online presence across a range of platforms, and begin work on their first digital media project.

Subject Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this subject, students will be able to:
1. Demonstrate an understanding of the dynamics driving emergent media convergence, and their effects on audiences, media platforms, and industries
2. Demonstrate introductory digital literacies in the production, aggregation and curation of online content
3. Demonstrate introductory abilities in conceptualising and developing a self-directed or team-based digital media project in a practical context
