This unit explores digital media and communications landscapes by teaching students to map and analyse policy settings, industry performance, and patterns of access, voice, diversity and engagement. Within this framework, the unit focuses on the immaterial and creative forms of labour found in networked landscapes, and on conceptual and practical means of negotiating workplace norms, hierarchies and routines. Students will have opportunities to extend their disciplinary literacy and create professional branding strategies using open source software and social media.
