  • Overview

    Media organisations in Australia operate in a global context. Australian media content represents an important export for the country's economy, while Australian audiences consume large quantities of content produced overseas, or adapted from formats originated in other media markets. There is great value, therefore, in students of journalism, media and communication learning how the global media market functions, and the implications of cultural globalisation for professional practice. This foundation unit will introduce you to the global nature of media production and to your role as a future practitioner in a globalised media system.
    Learning Outcomes
    On completion of this unit you should be able to:
    1. Analyse concepts in the theory of globalisation to the study of journalism, media and communication;
    2. Engage in debates around the implications of globalised media practice for issues of culture and identity at local and national levels;
    3. Demonstrate an applied understanding of trends in global media markets;
    4. Apply written, oral and visual communication skills in the presentation of an analysis and evaluation of collaborative practice.
