Hi and welcome to tiip, the ‘tag‘ for Thinking Practices, the module for the MA in Art and Media Practices at the University of Westminster.
I’m paula and i will be facilitating this 12 week module, in which we will be focusing on what are the critical dialogues surrounding contemporary media and art practices.
For this module we will be working in a format known as “blended learning“. This means we will be exploring different types of activities, both face to face and online. We will be enjoying all the resources available in the media lab and in the learning centre/ library at large. And we will be also working in the internet, using the resources available online.
Some of you may be working together online for the first time, so to make it more enjoyable, it is really important that we re-introduce ourselves in this new environment.
To get us started, I will say a few words about myself.
I ‘m an artist and lecturer and in addition to teaching at the University of Westminster, I am mostly based at the London South Bank University, where I lecture on the BA (Hons) Digital Photography and we are currently developing projects around self-publishing, artists books and photobooks. You can read more about it here.
I keep blogs for all my teaching projects, and you can look at some of these here
I also keep a blog for my art projects, where i combine elements of installation and networked art in response to site-specific situations, and you can read about it here
But enough of me! Its your turn now 🙂
Please follow e-tivity 01 post to find out what to do!
I look forward to reading your first posts.
