Board helps transform media education


Leaders from the media business community are working together to help transform media education at the University of Adelaide.

They are all members of a new Media Advisory Board, which includes some of Adelaide's most significant media players. All have agreed to give their time to help the University become a benchmark provider of media education in the country.

"I am delighted with the calibre of people that we have on the Media Advisory Board," says Professor James McWha, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Adelaide.

"The Bachelor of Media is a relatively new program in the University's 130-year history, so we have put this advisory board together to help us improve and strengthen our offering in this area. We plan to be a leader in this field, preparing well-rounded graduates who can apply their skills to a diverse and changing industry."

The Media Advisory Board will provide ideas, advice and industry perspective to the University on how to improve its media program to better equip graduates for a career in the media, and on areas of interest for potential research projects.

The members of the Media Advisory Board will act as advocates for the University's media program within the business community and will assist in promoting the program to prospective students. It is expected that they will also help media students understand how educational and research activities tie into the needs of the media industry.

Members of the Media Advisory Board, in alphabetical order, are :
