MDIA 3316 - Photographic Imaging IV

Adelaide College of ArtsandDes - Semester 1 - 2020

This course builds on the photographic and visual communication skills acquired in Photographic Imaging III. It allows the student to specialise in a field or fields of their own choice by creating a study contract (in conjunction with staff) outlining their preferred area of learning. At the end of the course, the student will have produced an industry standard body of work suitable for marketing and promoting their skills and in an area that is of most interest and relevance to them. The course promotes a self-directed approach guided by interaction from staff and the appointment of an industry practitioner (photographer) acting as a mentor. This collaboration promotes the dissemination of current skills and the refinement of techniques in an environment that promotes experimentation, innovation and excellence.

  • Assessment

    The University's policy on Assessment for Coursework Programs is based on the following four principles:

    1. Assessment must encourage and reinforce learning.
    2. Assessment must enable robust and fair judgements about student performance.
    3. Assessment practices must be fair and equitable to students and give them the opportunity to demonstrate what they have learned.
    4. Assessment must maintain academic standards.

    Assessment Summary
    Due to the current COVID-19 situation, modified arrangements have been made to assessments to facilitate remote learning and teaching. Assessment details provided here reflect recent updates.
    • Removal of studio requirements from major folio. Students that have already shot studio images in the weeks prior are allowed to use them and proposals have been adjusted to reflect the changes required. Ie students have chosen to shoot macro instead of high speed, product instead of portrait.
    • The total number of images has been reduced from 25 to 20.

  • Student Feedback

    The University places a high priority on approaches to learning and teaching that enhance the student experience. Feedback is sought from students in a variety of ways including on-going engagement with staff, the use of online discussion boards and the use of Student Experience of Learning and Teaching (SELT) surveys as well as GOS surveys and Program reviews.

    SELTs are an important source of information to inform individual teaching practice, decisions about teaching duties, and course and program curriculum design. They enable the University to assess how effectively its learning environments and teaching practices facilitate student engagement and learning outcomes. Under the current SELT Policy (http://www.adelaide.edu.au/policies/101/) course SELTs are mandated and must be conducted at the conclusion of each term/semester/trimester for every course offering. Feedback on issues raised through course SELT surveys is made available to enrolled students through various resources (e.g. MyUni). In addition aggregated course SELT data is available.

  • Student Support
  • Policies & Guidelines
  • Fraud Awareness

    Students are reminded that in order to maintain the academic integrity of all programs and courses, the university has a zero-tolerance approach to students offering money or significant value goods or services to any staff member who is involved in their teaching or assessment. Students offering lecturers or tutors or professional staff anything more than a small token of appreciation is totally unacceptable, in any circumstances. Staff members are obliged to report all such incidents to their supervisor/manager, who will refer them for action under the university's student’s disciplinary procedures.

The University of Adelaide is committed to regular reviews of the courses and programs it offers to students. The University of Adelaide therefore reserves the right to discontinue or vary programs and courses without notice. Please read the important information contained in the disclaimer.
