Congrats! Audio Production’s Alice Asbury Wins Excellence Award

from Alice’s mum

The Excellence Scholarship recognised Alice’s outstanding academic achievement.  She attained the highest amount of tariff points in one sitting during her BTEC Extended Diploma in Music. Alice’s accomplishment put her in the category of ‘the highest achieving new undergraduate students joining the institution.’

Lincoln School of Media’s Alice was one of nine first year students, from across the University’s Colleges, to get an Excellence Scholarship from the Vice Chancellor Professor Mary Stuart: “Scholarships represents a very special moment for us all here at the University of Lincoln, when we acknowledge the successes of our newest undergraduate students.”

Update: Media Culture 2020 European Programme

MC2020_Latvia_NewYear2013Find out what 9 Lincoln School of Media students and 2 lecturers got up to in Latvia when they completed the 2nd edition of Media Culture 2020.  It is an innovative EU-funded programme designed to explore new modes of collaborative teaching & learning. Here’s an update from LSM’s Martyn Thayne and Graham Cooper:

The main objective of the Erasmus Intensive Programme was to break down classroom and campus walls by creating an open learning environment, where students from different countries and fields could explore and learn together. The multi-disciplinary project featured five universities from across Europe, including Lincoln, the University of Vic (Spain/Catalonia), Tampere University of Applied Sciences (Finland), Liepaja University (Latvia), and HKU Hilversum (Netherlands). In addition to the delivery of a number of interactive, online workshops, the project culminated in a two-week intensive programme hosted by Liepaja University, Latvia.

Jan Job? Paid Opportunity for Hourly Lecturers at Lincoln College

LincolnCollege_logoFrom Jon Rowlands, Programme Co-ordinator in the Department of Media, Art & Design at Lincoln College: I am still trying to plug gaps in the timetable for January and am looking for new hourly lecturers to join us.

Ideally, some experience handling a class or group of people is desirable, even if it’s limited (e.g. taster days) and a good technical knowledge of camera equipment (specifically DSLRs) and editing (ideally Final Cut, but as we know, the editing craft is more important than the make of scissors they use!). After Effects would be a huge plus, as I have a HND ready to get cracking on that after Xmas. Basically any strong, professional candidates who have completed the BA (in Media Production) would be warmly considered.

These hours will be alongside our existing Hourly Part-time Lecturers in the short-term. So
please feel free to contact me if you’d like to discuss this paid opportunity. Email: JRowlands@lincolncollege.ac.uk

Michael Passingham Update

I have been offered a job at London-based technology/IT news website www.V3.co.uk. It’s an absolutely brilliant first job to get, and it’s a highly-regarded news source in the industry, so I’m absolutely thrilled about it. It’s a 9 month maternity contract, but it’s a great step onto the ladder. I’ll be covering IT skills/education, social media and UK tech startups. I’ll also be producing much of the website’s video content. Continue reading
