ALONG WITH THREE OTHER multimedia lecturers, I spent most of Valentine's Day, including the dinner hour, revising Ireland's longest-running third level Bachelor of Science creative multimedia degree programme.
We are preparing to slot our programme into the curriculum offerings promoted and leveraged by the Limerick Institute of Technology. Along the way, we're well aware of the importance of the programme we have tweaked since late 2002. Our working notes show an evolution of techniques, procedures and style since the days when the programme emerged from a BSc in Software Development. We do creative multimedia in LIT-Clonmel as a BSc (Honours degree) because our core cadre has been working in the space since 1996 when we taught at Arthouse, Ireland's Multimedia Centre for the Arts. Today's programme builds upon a strong pedigree.
This is the most significant peer review I have completed because it involves our identity as LIT Creative Multimedia. Our vibrant Honours Degree Multimedia programme is easily findable on Google, in guidance counselour literature and on social networks. I believe it is important to retain that identity into the future because current students and focus groups tell us that's what they learn when they start their programme on our Clonmel campus.
During the next 30 days, an internal panel will determine whether the current BSc in Creative Multimedia is good enough to continue producing creative multimedia graduates for the Irish work force. If you want to help, would you click into the Creative Multimedia group on Facebook and offer a comment of your own?
