Chapter
As editors, it is with immense sadness that we conclude this volume at a time of great difficulty for tertiary education both within Australia and across the world. The effects of the 2020 global pandemic have been catastrophic.
Book
This book shares exemplary teaching and learning practices from the tertiary sector, and addresses important issues concerning quality, scholarship and innovation in teaching and learning in tertiary settings. It takes on classic issues regarding curricula, technologies and assessment, but approaches them from novel perspectives and using a variety...
Chapter
As Associate Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Education), it is with great pleasure that I write some concluding remarks for this volume, a showcase of transformational activities that reflects scholarly learning and teaching practice at RMIT University.
Chapter
This provocation reflects on the potential of new (and often uncomfortable) experiences to facilitate transformational learning and frames international experiential activities as a way to ensure that students leave their comfort zone. However, there is a risk that universities can be overly cautious in their approach and this chapter argues that—w...

MOOCs have been heralded by some as disruptive of the higher education sector, but the reality is that they are examples of business rather than educational innovation. By enabling universities to focus on global scale and reach as they navigate the digital environment, current MOOCs mostly sustain existing learning practices rather than force peda...
Chapter
The 2013 Student Experience and Expectation of Technology survey reinforces the impression that the twenty-first century student has a significant digital engagement (Gosper M, McKenzie J, Pizzica J, Malfroy J, Ashford-Rowe K, Student use of technologies for learning – what has changed since 2010? In: Hegarty B, McDonald J, Loke S-K (eds) Rhetoric...
Article
Curriculum design in higher education environments, namely the consideration of aims, learning outcomes, syllabus, pedagogy and assessment, can often be ad hoc and driven by informal cultural habits. Academics with disciplinary expertise may be resistant to (or ignorant of) pedagogical approaches beyond existing practice. In an environment where th...

Online technologies are becoming ubiquitous in higher education and present both challenges and opportunities for those involved in learning and teaching. This chapter reports on the research-enhanced implementation of Electronic Assessment Management (EAM) within one faculty of a university in Sydney, Australia. This research was conducted as a qu...
Chapter
This chapter examines recent developments in self-publishing. In the book trade, self-publishing has traditionally been dismissed as little more than an exercise in vanity. But, as Young demonstrates, the possibilities of e-books have thrown up examples that force us to rethink the role and reputation of self-publishing.
Article

In order to better understand the differences between the Japanese media mix compared with the Western transmedial production model their shared history of mutual influence is tracked over time. Although they share common inspirations they have nevertheless evolved in different ways, largely due to the influence of their different local audience cu...
Article
The first-person shooter (FPS), with its subjective view point and relentless action, gives its players an intense, often violent, virtual experience. There has been considerable debate about the effects of this mediated experience. Of particular concern is whether these games stage a propaganda campaign for the interests of governments and the mil...
Article
In recent history, the music industry has been built on a small number of relationships, largely driven from the top down. While the actual music forges a direct link between musicians and their fans, the reality of the industry is that a number of intermediaries interrupt that relationship, forcing musicians to communicate through their management...
Article
The move from analog distribution to online digital delivery is common in the contemporary mediascape. Music is in the midst of an ipod driven paradigm shift (Levy), television and movie delivery is being reconfigured (Johnson), and newspaper and magazines are confronting the reality of the world wide web and what it means for business models and i...
Article
TV is being reshaped, reimagined and reinvented in unpredictable ways. Broadcasting has become only one of a set of options for the distribution of TV content, alongside cable, DVDs, internet downloads, and online video streams. Simultaneously, audiences have embraced new modes of engagement with audio-visual products, with many seamlessly shifting...
Article
This paper examines distributed computing projects in which users allow their unused computing resources to be utilised by third parties. As well as being the latest manifestation of an internet gift economy, these projects represent technological prototypes for resource sharing over the internet — ideas that are being pursued by capital for differ...
Article
The internet is most often described in technical terms — as a combination of network protocols, infrastructure and access devices. However, rather than reduce the internet to a technical specification, it is more useful to understand it as an assemblage of technology, people and ideas. The dominant idea informing the internet has been one of openn...
Article
"So which is the most authentic experience for an end-user steeped in car culture? Real, made-in-Japan Type R? Or virtual, programmed-in-Japan Type-R. Each Type-R is equally enjoyable, equally wieldy, equally consistent -- and precisely fulfils the sporting intent of Honda's Type-R sub-brand. Car culture, then, is so broad, so diverse, that we migh...
Article
Postmodernity, as is its wont, conjures up new ways of thinking about everything, and it is no different with ideas about space. One such analysis is the idea of 'heterotopias'. Published in the French journal Architecture-Mouvement-Continuité under the title 'Des Espaces Autres', and subsequently published in English as 'Of Other Spaces' in 1986 w...
Article
The FTA Implementation Bill proposes that Australia's copyright regime be harmonised with that of the USA. In particular, mooted changes include the length of copyright protection terms, the criminalisation of currently legal uses of intellectual property and a more authoritarian approach to the use of circumvention devices. These all serve to make...
