The Diploma of Photo Imaging has been designed to provide graduates with a broad base of generalist Photo Imaging knowledge, skills and experience suitable both for entry‐level employment in the Photo Imaging sector and/or as a platform for further specialised study at Bachelor level.
The course structure is designed to interweave theory, practice and connection. Each of these themes in turn represents distinct modes of thinking, enquiry and knowledge acquisition in relation to photo imaging.
The course aims to develop graduates who are intellectually curious, rigorous independent thinkers, ethical and reflective practitioners with a commitment to lifelong learning.
Throughout, students will have the opportunity to engage with authentic learning experiences and assessment tasks grounded in industry practice.
Graduates will acquire skills in research and problem‐solving that they will be able to use to maintain and develop their professional disciplinary currency once in the workplace. Their disciplinary and academic knowledge base will also provide a platform for further undergraduate study in Photo Imaging related fields.
Key Study Outcomes:
- Explore underpinning theoretical bodies of knowledge as a source of ideas and methods (theory informing practice);
- Engage in practice both as a means of skills acquisition and as a crucial mode of thinking (practice not only informed by but informing theory); and
- Make connections, both with the history and contexts of photo imaging and with industry mentors and communities of practice.
