A research project to help you better understand and engage with young people’s digital media cultures
You are invited to participate in the trial of an evidence-based workshop that is designed to build your professional capacity to understand and engage with young people’s digital media cultures within your workplace context.
The workshop is part of a research project being conducted by Professor Kath Albury and Dr Anthony McCosker from Swinburne University of Technology, with support from the Alannah and Madeline Foundation and Family Planning Victoria.
The research will help us design and deliver future pre-service and in-service professional development resources.
Benefits of taking part
This evidence-based workshop is designed to build your professional capacity to engage with young people’s digital media cultures within your workplace context.
The researchers want to learn more about current professional approaches to engaging with youth media practices, with the aim of developing recommendations for policy and practice in this area.
You will be provided with a copy of workshop resources, and a short report based on the project’s findings will be available via Swinburne University of Technology, Alannah and Madeline Foundation and Family Planning Victoria websites (and associated social media accounts) from August 2018.
