An excerpt from the post-industrial education webpage:
Content still matters, but the experience of learning and being a media practitioner as a mindful, reflective, and critical maker and contributor are explicitly foregrounded. It is this experience, in what is actually a carefully crafted and managed framework (even where all appearances suggest the contrary) that is what a degree offers and needs to enable, now. I think there was a distance or difference between learning and practice, where you read, did, thought, made, but it happened in contexts distant from ‘real’ media making and ‘real’ knowledge creation. That distinction is gone for all the reasons listed, and so now this subject (and I think media degrees more generally) needs to teach (through how they are performed as much by content, well I’d probably say performance counts now for more than content) how to ‘be’ a critical media practitioner in the network.
