Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Digital Media Kingston (DMK) is a HEFCE funded cross-faculty project at Kingston University that aims to transcend the inherited boundaries between the arts and sciences and education and industry to ensure a synergy between teaching, research and enterprise and provide an industry-focused learning experience in creative digital practice. Vocational education in digital media must firstly be interdisciplinary, as the practice itself is a convergence of the aesthetic, social and technical, but the teaching must also be research-engaged. The field moves so fast, it is only by integrating research and innovation that you can provide a ‘future proof’ education that can arm graduates to compete within the market place.
