Project

Emerging Media Exploration (EMEX) 2018-2021

EMEX seeks to develop collaborative teaching approaches to explore the impact of new and emerging media technologies on the future of storytelling and the society.  

The core partners of the project consortium are University of Lincoln, Tampere University of Applied Science and Film University Babelsberg KONRAD WOLF, accompanied by Tampere University, University of Central Lancashire, Rundfunk Berlin-Brandenburg and several media organizations.  

The primary target groups are students and teachers in design, arts and media technology. Students need access to emerging media technology to improve employability in the competitive labour market of the media industry and teachers need first-hand access to new developments.

Goal

Alongside art students and teachers, the secondary target group are industry partners from media technology research institutes and start-ups. They often lack the capability of testing their products in an authentic production environment, because media production companies have no time and budget to work on experimental media. Together with engaged students and teachers they can assess the potential in aesthetics and storytelling that lies in their technologies.  

The main objective of EMEX is the creation of a blended mobility project-based learning curriculum on the theme of Emerging Media. It shall integrate international online courses, intensive on-site workshops, industry partnerships and shared minor curricula for erasmus students. The consortium partners have extensive experiences in all of these areas and are seeking to blend them into a greater framework.
