Abstract

The project aimed to identify gaps between generations with regard to perceptions, attitudes and expectations of digital technology in relation to the learning and teaching of the moving image, and to help bridge any gaps and enhance communication between students, academic and support staff. This ethnographic study includes a combination of quantitative and qualitative research methods including digital video as research practice with 34 recorded interviews: 50% with students, 30% academic and 20% support staff at the University of Brighton and at the Royal College of Art, London. We found that there is a gap between expectations and experiences of digital technology, attitudes to the learning and teaching of the moving image vary in complex ways between generations and perceptions of quality are in a state of flux.
