FROM THE ARCHIVE - Doing Media 2.0

Doing Media 2.0
Julian McDougall and Steve Dixon, Newman University College, Birmingham

This article describes and evaluates a curriculum intervention – the development of a new module, ‘Media 2.0’ in the context of the broader debates in what Lister and Dovey call ‘a very uneven field’ (Networks 07). To avoid reproducing the debate throughout the Media degree as peripheral, the subject team designed a new module to ensure a foundational context for students in which to reflect on their ‘prosumer’ activity as well as what happens to ‘the media’ as a result. 

Published in Autumn 2009Networks, Issue 8, pp. 23 - 25.
