Asian Canadian Multimedia Production: Developing Curriculum Materials for Ethical Practices of Community Engagement

Title Asian Canadian Multimedia Production: Developing Curriculum Materials for Ethical Practices of Community Engagement
Faculty/College/Unit Arts
Status Active
Duration 2 Year
Initiation 04/01/2016
Project Summary

This project seeks to develop and integrate media production and ethical community engagement into the Asian Canadian and Asian Migration Studies Program. Specifically, this project aims to establish a three-fold curriculum infrastructure with teaching and learning resources focusing on 1) critical understandings of Asian Canadian visual culture, 2) ethics of community engagement, and 3) creating an online portal to archive student projects and make them available for educational use at the University as well as to the general public, including the program’s community partners. In doing so, the project seeks to facilitate a flexible learning environment where ethical practices of community-oriented media production can be widely implemented across different courses in order to enable students to take initiative in promoting intercultural understanding and knowledge co-creation within and beyond the classroom. It is anticipated that the materials produced by this project can be adapted for use beyond ACAM in other classes in the Faculty of Arts and elsewhere in the University.
