This paper argues for a break from the notion of small cinema as a temporally and geographically located space and reconceptualises it as a socially constructed place. A shadow site that mirrors elite forms of cinema in microcosm and as a locus for communities of practitioners that intersect primarily through project networks. This case study of a...

Drawing on the work of the ‘critical projects movement’ the chapter outlines a theoretical underpinning for reconceptualising proj...

Article
Full-text available
This article originated from personal reflection on the nature of projects and the use of project-based learning in media practice education. Accepting that problems are the motor for projects, it asks questions about how students conceptualize problems and seeks to understand the strategies they employ to manage problem encounters. Problem solving...
Article
Full-text available
Any pedagogy of media practice sits at the intersection between training for employment and education for critical thinking. As such, the use of projects is a primary means of structuring learning experiences as a means of mirroring professional practice. Yet, our understanding of the nature of projects and of project-based learning is arguably und...
Article

This article focuses on project-based learning in media practice education, identifying three themes of interest. The first questions the recontextualisation of practice from the professional to a pedagogic environment. The second theme questions how much we know about what goes on inside a project and contrasts the ways in which students ‘do’ proj...
Article
Full-text available
In the field of media practice education, project-based learning is utilized as a major pedagogic paradigm with the aim of mirroring professional practice within the curriculum. However, if the use of project-based learning is to be considered as more than just a way of administrating student activity, then educators need a critical understanding o...

Full-text available
For many years there has been a sharp division between project-based learning, and problem-based learning, with the former adopting a more technical rationalist approach while the latter adopts a more Socratic or dialogic approach. This article argues that current notions of project-based learning are too narrow and that combining the two approache...
Article

Typically, risk is a difficult idea to communicate to undergraduates as it requires a conceptual engagement with a project’s process. Without the experience of several project iterations it is difficult for students to see the value such a tool can bring to their work. The article will look at the use of ‘risk’ in relation to promoting deeper refle...

There has been increased pressure upon academic institutions to further develop Work-Based Learning (WBL) within the curriculum. Media practice education already includes a significant amount of Work-Related Learning (WRL) although perhaps this is not always made evident in course documents or through specific approaches to the delivery of courses....
