Abstract

Interactive Media Project and Presentation is a capstone subject in a suite of multimedia degrees. The subject gives students a guided learning experience in which they complete a commercial multimedia project. Students test their knowledge and skills through work that is scaled according to their enrolled numbers, the needs of a client and a deadline for deliverables. Students learn to apply disparate knowledge domains in a single project, distribute work roles, set feasible project scope and overcome limitations with tools of their profession. Research in multimedia education establishes the need for project-based learning for the application of theory to project, team and client management (Simkins, Cole, Tavalin, & Means, 2002). The Bond University Interactive Media Project and Presentation subject leverages small class sizes by personalising and scaling instruction aligned with constructionist educational philosophy: teachers and students modify their roles so that students take personal responsibility for learning and thus migrate from multimedia consumers to professional content producers.
