ANU students who read New Mandala might be interested in a new media practicum course that Nicholas Farrelly and I are teaching this year – Digital Frontiers in the Asia-Pacific.

The course examines how digital spaces and technologies are transforming media, politics and society in Asia and the Pacific, and the impact this also has on how we research and communicate our ideas to the world.

In the course, students will get first-hand experience of how media and academia are increasingly converging and learn how to make the most of this to pursue exciting career paths in this space.

Joining the student-driven online publication Monsoon, participants will learn practical skills like editing, op-ed writing, features reporting, and developing photo essays and other multimedia content.

More information about the course is available from ANU Programs and Courses. We are also hosting an information session at ANU from 5.30pm on Tuesday 9 February.
