Abstract

Courses in screen production and writing have expanded greatly in Australian higher education over the past twenty years1. However, there has been no proportionate increase in mechanisms for information sharing among educators in this field2. The diversity of teachers' experiences in media production - some having industrial backgrounds, some academic, some both - increases the potential value of exchanges. So does the fact that the 'academicisation' of media production is a recent phenomenon and relations between education, industry and community are still defining themselves. As a contribution to dialogue in a plot still assuming form, this article links issues at the 'micro' level of teaching media production with some 'macro' considerations about its role in universities.
