CONTACTING ARTS1090 TEACHING STAFF
The best way to contact us is by email, however, given the size of the course it may take a
couple of days to receive a reply. If you require a signature or wish to ask questions about
the course content then you must attend my consultation hours (listed above under Course
Coordinator) on Tuesdays or Thursdays during teaching weeks. I am also available by
appointment on Wednesdays during the semester.
Your tutorial leader is only casually employed which only covers payment for time spent in
the classroom along with some compensation for time spent on preparation and marking.
This means that the vast majority of your questions about the course, including requests for
special consideration and extensions must be directed to the course coordinator, even if I am
not your tutor. 
If you miss a class, it’s nice to let us know by email. If you’ve suffered some illness or
misadventure we will gladly keep you up to date on things. However, we will not respond to
emails that ask questions which have already been answered, particularly in the Lecture. The
Lectures are held twice a week, and recorded via the blackboard, so it’s your obligation to

 

COURSE DETAILS 
 
Welcome to Media, Culture and Everyday Life. This course is the first year gateway to the
study of media at UNSW and it provides a foundation for further study in both the BMedia
degree programs and the BA major in Media, Culture and Technology. The course is worth 6
units of credit.
 
Starting with the familiar and the everyday, this course introduces students to the breadth of
contemporary media studies by focusing on the conceptual foundations of the discipline.
With an eye on the way that media have adapted to changing realities over the decades,
both shaping them and being shaped by them, this course explains how media and
communication technologies have transformed the rhythms of everyday life, the organisation
of meaning, the boundaries between private and public, the sense of national and public
collectivity, the texture of public space, immediacy and liveness, and the experience of time
and distance.  
 
This course offers an accessible grounding in the traditions, perspectives and concepts
central to media studies, and introduces current developments in the field. Students will be
encouraged to apply the course concepts to their own experiences of media in order to
assess their relevance to understanding contemporary everyday life. We hope you’ll find it
stimulating and enjoyable.  
 
Course Aims
 
• To introduce students to key theories and perspectives in media studies and their
interdisciplinary nature. 
• To encourage students to reflect on and critically evaluate the role of media in everyday
life.  
• To investigate the networked nature of media and the interconnections and
convergences between media.
• To analyse the role of media in the organisation and experience of space, time, privacy
and social collectivity. 
• To familiarise students with the foundational concepts necessary for pursuing the
BMedia degrees and the BArts major in Media, Culture and Technology.

Student Learning Outcomes
 
On completion of this course students will have: 
 
• Competencies in foundational concepts in media theory;
• The ability to critically analyse and interrogate the social and cultural dynamics of
media technologies and their uses and impacts on everyday life; 
• Skills in scholarly inquiry, specifically: critical thinking, analytical reading and writing,
independent learning and intellectual autonomy;
• Preliminary skills in research design and methods, and in information literacy. 
 
These outcomes are designed to develop your skills and attributes as a graduate. With this
introductory course we want to ensure that you develop good skills in scholarly inquiry, that
you have the capacity for analytical thinking and creative problem solving and that you are
able to engage in independent and reflective learning. We also want to ensure that you
become an effective communicator and that you develop skills in learning and collaborating
with fellow students.

APPROACH TO LEARNING AND TEACHING
 
Lectures
 
The lecture will take place every week at the following times and locations
 
Tuesdays 9-11am (w1-5,6-12, Mathews Theatre A)
OR,
Thursdays 4-6pm (w1-5,6-12, Mathews Theatre A)
 
Lectures are compulsory, so you’ll need to engage with the lecture material in some form or
you’ll be lost. Podcasts (i.e. voice recordings) of the lectures, along with the presentation
slides, will be distributed each week via the UNSW Blackboard system. 
 
Although the theatre and class size are large, we still seek to make the lecture as interactive
and engaging as possible. At times, you’ll be encouraged to speak and ask questions, have
your say, to offer ideas and participate in debates. We want you to see the lecture as a
chance to think together not merely consume pre-packaged knowledge. The lecture slides
will be available on the course website, after the lecture, so there is no need for you to
furiously write. It is always much better to listen and get involved. 
 
 
Tutorials
 
Tutorials are smaller groups where students have a chance to ask questions and verbalise
their understanding of the course content with a member of the course staff present. You will
also be given tasks and exercises to complete in class each week, so you’ll need to check the
course website in advance of each tutorial.
 
The tutorials are also a space where we seek to integrate and blend the online component of
the course with the face-to-face learning environment. In completing the Blackboard Blog
Assignment you will read and react to each other online. This will be an excellent way to
prepare for the class, so we strongly recommend that you to come to the tutorial with the
online discussions in mind. Which contributions advanced or stimulated your thinking about
the week’s topic or improved your understanding of the readings? Each tutorial will start with
the online discussions so you’ll need to review these before class time.
 
The aim of these tutorials is to encourage debate amongst students. It is through talking and
discussion that ideas come alive and different perspectives become available to us. Teachers
are there to help facilitate discussion and build a community of inquiry, not to give another
lecture. So you need to be prepared before each meeting to play an active role in these
discussions.

Online Learning
 
The course will also use the UNSW Blackboard learning environment. This can be accessed
from the following URL:
 
Although the course is conducted predominantly in face-to-face teaching mode, it is essential
that you consult the course blackboard module on a weekly basis and participate actively in
the discussions and join the online assessment components. 
 
 
Student Preparation
 
Throughout this course we expect students to take responsibility for their own learning. We
don’t see knowledge as something handed down from teacher to student, but as an active
relationship in which ideas and thinking emerge through collaboration and exchange.  Your
experiences of and insights into media are valuable resources in this course. You’ll be
encouraged to critically evaluate them in relation to ideas and theories developed each
week. You already know a lot about media in everyday life, the challenge in this course is to
extend and develop this knowledge through an encounter with media theory.    
 
Keeping up with the readings is essential to successful participation in this course. Without
adequate preparation you will find the lectures and tutorial discussions difficult to
comprehend.
 
The readings are sometimes demanding and will require careful note taking and a second
read. Do not be put off by the difficulty but see this as a chance to develop skills in
theoretical reading and analysis. You will get the chance to discuss the readings with your
colleagues in tutorials and in interactive lectures. While we will seek to explain the readings
in lectures, our primary goal is to guide you in developing your own reading and analytical
skills and this requires commitment and initiative on your part. You should allow for 6 hours
per week outside of class time for preparation. 
 
 
 
ASSESSMENT 
 
There will be four pieces of assessment, each focussing on developing different skills. 
Scholarly inquiry involves skills in reading, researching and writing. While all of you already
have these skills (otherwise you wouldn’t have made it to university!) in this course we aim
to develop them in relation to the specific demands and expectations of advanced
intellectual analysis.
 
Summary of Assessment
 
1.  In-Class Writing Test (In tutorials, Week 4 – Friday classes will complete in Week 5) –
10%
2.  Blackboard Course Blog: 20% (Due throughout the teaching session)

The University will release its Final Exam Timetable later in the semester. The exam
period covers the 14th
 June – 1st
 July 2013. You must be available to sit the exam at
any point during these dates.
 
 
Assessment 1: In-Class Writing Test: 10%
500-750 words
 
The In-Class Writing Test is designed to develop your understanding of the readings in the
early weeks of the course and improve your ability to express it in writing. The test will
consist of a single question identifying a passage of text from one of the readings we
discussed during Weeks 1-3. The question will ask you to explain what the passage means
and provide your own examples to illustrate how it helps us understand real world examples
of media. You will have approximately 40 minutes to complete the test. An answer booklet
will be provided.
 
If you have a legitimate documented reason for being absent during the time that your
tutorial completed the test, please contact the course coordinator and he will arrange another
time for you to take it. If you have an SEADU educational adjustment that requires the
assessment conditions to be modified, please alert the course coordinator as soon as possible
and he will arrange whatever is required to assist you in completing the task.
 
 Assessment Criteria for the In-Class test 
 
1.  Ability to demonstrate a deep understanding of the readings.
2.  Ability to apply course ideas and concepts to explain real world examples of media.
3.  Ability to write a clear, grammatically correct response to the question.
 
 
Assessment 2: Blackboard Course Blog: 20%
Students receive an individual grade for this assignment.
Students are required to make 8 individual posts, in a weekly manner, over the course of the
session.
You must make your first post by Week 3 of the course.  
In order for your contributions to count toward the 8 posts, they must be posted online
before your tutorial meets to discuss that week’s topic.
Students are required to participate in the discussions on Blackboard collaboratively by
commenting and networking online with each other and the wider Internet world. 
 
The blog assignment is designed to develop and reinforce the following learning outcomes:
 
•  understanding of the concepts discussed in lectures, tutorials and readings
•  the ability to apply the concepts to analyse real world examples of media
•  the ability to read scholarly writing and engage critically with academic arguments
•  digital and network literacy skills 
•  collaborative skills, including being active and supportive, in an online group
environment

What to Write in your Blog Contributions
 
The group blog is intended to generate support and collaboration in completing the weekly
readings and developing your understanding of the course concepts. You will be given a
question to blog about in the blackboard course module each week. You have a great deal of
freedom in terms of what you write and post to your blog (e.g. links to other websites, video
clips, etc.) in response to the question. You should write in an informal style and in a manner
that addresses your peers, however, it is important that you demonstrate your understanding
of the key concept(s) and central arguments from the readings and lectures. Naturally, it is
expected that students relate to each other utmost respect. Please refrain from swearing; be
polite and focus your contributions on the course content.
 
Do not attempt to merely summarise the readings, or post raw notes you made while
completing them. Rather, make contributions that demonstrate your ability to engage with
the key concepts and ideas and facilitate the groups’ understanding of them. We are looking
at the quality of your engagement with the course, your ability both to understand the
readings and to enter into an active and productive relation with what you read (i.e. to be
stimulated by them).
 
As part of your weekly preparation before the lecture you must do all the required weekly
readings (see the Course Lecture and Reading Schedule below). You will then have the next
week before your tutorial to make your contribution on Blackboard. 
 
 
Grading Process: 
 
You will receive feedback about your progress on this assignment by the end of Week 5. This
feedback will indicate how well you are addressing the criteria set out above, the overall
grade you are working at and how your logs could be improved. You will not get specific
comments on each entry but they will be read each week and discussed in your tutorial
groups. At the end of the semester, students will receive a mark based on their overall
individual work, based on the assessment criteria
 
Assessment criteria for Assessment 2: Blackboard Course Blog
 
1.  Ability to engage with the course via the blog by making timely posts and    comments
2.  Ability to demonstrate a deep understanding of the key concepts from the lectures and
readings
3.  Ability to analyse real world examples of media using the concepts and ideas

Assessment 3:  Media Convergence Research Project: 30% 
2,000 - 2,500 words
Due Week 9, Monday 6th
 May 2013 by 4pm. 
 
Submit to Turnitin via the ARTS1090 Blackboard Module by the due date and time.
Hand in a hard copy to the SAM School office Assignment boxes outside Webster 311.
Please note the Turnitin copy will determine the time of submission. If one is not provided,
your hard copy will not be marked.
 
The aim of this assessment is to develop skills in research design; specifically the tasks of
collecting, organizing and analyzing data.  Throughout your university and working life you
will have to research i.e. pose questions of social reality and develop the most appropriate
means to find answers to these questions. 
 
To complete this assignment you will have to do a simple piece of empirical research and
conceptually analyse your findings. The topic of your research is to explore the impact of
media convergence in an individual’s everyday life. In other words, we want to explore how
media convergence is impacting on how actually people use and engage with media. We
also want to offer a conceptual analysis that makes claims about the impact media
convergence is having on the relationship between media and society.
 
The Research Process
 
Step 1: Choosing your research subject
 
To begin your research we want you to select someone for your study. The person you select
can be anyone who is willing to document and discuss his or her media use with you. 
 
Step 2: Select a particular media form to focus on
 
Select a traditional form of media content (i.e. newspapers, magazines, television, or radio).
The more specific you are, highly likely the better. However, the media form you choose
should obviously be relevant to the person you’ve selected to study. Your goal is to analyse
your data and produce knowledge about how our engagement with traditional media is
changing and the impact media convergence is having on these forms.
 
Step 3: Collecting Empirical Data
 
To collect some empirical data for your study, you must ask them to keep a diary of every
time they engage with this type of media within a calendar week. This part of your
assignment should take place during the session break, which falls between 1st
 -7th
 April (i.e.
between Weeks 4-5). You should prepare, in advance, some way for them to easily keep a
detailed record of when and where they engage with the particular media form, what device
they used to access it, for how long, as well as for what purpose: pleasure and relaxation,
communication, study, what content and relationships did they engage with?
 
 
 
 
11
Step 4: Analysing your data
 
Good research is about how well the researcher thinks with the material, the insights and
analyses they bring to the data and the ways they are able to explore the connections
between everyday media activities and the wider contexts and forces that organise the
media. 
 
Once you have collated your diary information you will need to develop ways to analyse it.
How will you make sense of this information? What tools and concepts do you need to sort
and classify it? Think about what patterns of use are revealed by the data. What factors are
shaping these patterns and how well do they correspond to the current research and thought
about media?  What do the patterns say about the nature of media convergence and how we
engage with media? How could this knowledge be used?
 
 
Step 5: Analysing your data
 
Having thought about the data, you will now need to identify at least one other main
concept from the course (e.g. domestication, mobility, identity, etc), in addition to the
concept of media convergence that you will use to interpret the data and think theoretically
about the relationship between media and everyday life in this particular case. Once you’ve
identified the key concepts or analytical tools that you think are most useful for exploring
and explaining your data then use them; put them to work on your material and develop an
analysis of your diary data. 
 
At this stage you will need to spend some time outlining the nature of your concepts how do
they help us understand media use? Use the readings in the study kit to develop the
concepts, to explain their meanings and value in this research, why they are useful tools for
your analysis. 
 
Step 6: Researching the existing Scholarly Literature on your topic
 
You must also do some additional research to see what others have written and found about
your topic. Use the library’s databases of scholarly research to find three relevant journal
articles that research the topic similar to the way you have. How does the knowledge you
produced add to or gel with their explanations? You will be given specific instructions as to
how you can access the relevant databases of research articles in the lectures.
 
Step 7: Writing your research report
 
Then write up your research report.  You need to think carefully about how to organise your
material.  How will you introduce your research, what framing questions and ideas will you
use to set it up? How will you write up the basic patterns that your diaries revealed? How
will you organise and explain your analysis? You don’t have to come up with definitive
conclusions but you do have to show that you can think carefully and deeply about media in
everyday life. We will discuss more specific strategies for writing your research paper during
class times after the session break. 
 
 
12
Your paper should report on the work you’ve completed and how you have analysed it. This
report should describe:
 
1.  The person you’ve selected to study and why. 
2.  How you went about collecting the data and the rationale behind your choices.
3.  The patterns of use and issues around media convergence that emerged from the data.
4.  The concepts from the course you have used to analyse the information you’ve
collected. 
5.  A brief “literature review” stating what other researchers are currently saying about
the topic.
6.  Your analysis and findings about the nature of media convergence and what this
means for the relationship between media and everyday life.
7.  Lastly, you should include the data you obtained from the diary in some easily
manageable form, as well as any relevant notes you’ve made in subsequent interviews
or observations. 
 
 
Assessment Criteria for Media Convergence Research Project 
 
1.  Evidence of good information collection from diaries and identification of patterns.
2.  Ability to manage and make appropriate research decisions to explore the impact of
media convergence on everyday life.
3.  Ability to identify appropriate concepts and tools for analysis and to propose the
meanings and significance of these tools.
4.  Ability to use theoretical tools and concepts effectively and rigorously.  
5.  Ability to think with the research material and to explore its significance in relation to
the wider social contexts of media in everyday life.   
6.  Ability to write a clear, engaging piece of analysis that addresses the relationship
between media and everyday life.
7.  Demonstrate command of relevant scholarly literature and reference this using the
HARVARD referencing guidelines.
 
 
Assessment 4: Final Examination:  40%

1st 
July 2013 
 
Note: UNSW Formal Examination Rules will apply. You must be available to sit the 
exam as scheduled by the UNSW Examinations Unit. This day will be announced to 
you during the course of the semester. 
 
The Final Exam will consist of multiple choice, short answer and/or essay type questions.  
 
 
Assessment Criteria for the Final Examination
 
1.  Demonstrate a deep understanding of course concepts and theories of media studies
as presented in the lectures and readings;
 
 
13
2.  Be able to engage in higher order thinking with the course concepts and apply them
to real world issues surrounding the contemporary media;
 
3.  Be able to write a clear, grammatically correct and cogent response to questions
about the relationship between media and everyday life;
 
 
 
Other Course Assessment Policies
 
You must complete a serious attempt at all four assessment components in order to be
eligible to pass this course.
 
As per the Policies of the School of the Arts and Media, you must attend 80% of all your
classes in order to be eligible to pass this course. 
 
Late Work Policy
 
If your assessment is submitted after the due date, a penalty of 3% per day (including
Saturday, Sunday and public holidays) will be imposed for up to 2 weeks. For example, if
you are given a mark of 72 out of 100 for an essay, and your essay were handed in two days
late, it would attract a penalty of 6% and the mark would be reduced to 66. If the same essay
were handed in seven days late (i.e. a penalty of 21%) it would receive a mark of 51.
 
If your assignment is not submitted within 2 weeks of its due date, it will receive 0
marks.
 
Requesting Extensions on Assignments
 
Extensions on assignments are at the discretion of the course coordinator. If your work on
assignments is hampered by illness, misadventure or other circumstances, which are beyond
your control, than you must notify the course convenor prior to the due date. 
 
If you are seeking an extension on a single assignment within ARTS1090, you should follow
the procedures for requesting an extension described in the document Essential Information
for all SAM Students (see below). In the event of a serious interruption to your studies, or
your work is affected across multiple courses, you are also required to lodge an application
for Special Consideration with UNSW Student Central within three working days of the
submission date in order to be eligible for an extension. You will need to provide
documentation and evidence to support your claims when you request an extension or
special consideration.
 
Work or family commitments, religious holidays, or assignments due in other courses are
not acceptable reasons for extensions since the possibility of such events are supposed to
be taken into account when managing your time. Short illnesses suffered within a week of 
the due date are also not typically acceptable grounds for an extension since the
assignment is assumed to be almost finished by that point. Evidence of significant progress
on the assessment task will need to be demonstrated when requesting an extension due to an
emergency or illness close to the submission date.
