"SporTV" : the legacies and power of television

Authors: 
Ben Goldsmith
Publication date: 
3 June 2013
Type: 
chapter

This chapter begins from the premise that, to date, television remains the dominant communications technology in the digital media sport environment. It argues that sports-related programming is often overlooked in favour of event coverage in the study of sports television. Analysis focuses on three areas - platform interaction, technological innovation, and content ecologies - and describes technological innovations arising from television coverage of sports, with a particular focus on online video, audience measurement, and 3D production and viewing.

Digital Interventions 4

What does it take to develop a ‘sticky’ networking site for leaders in the Creative Arts?

The answer to this question was sought through designing, developing, implementing and reflecting on ‘createED’, a national strategic network that combined elements of virtual communities of practice and knowledge networks. The digital intervention was part of an ALTC funded project that looked at ways to strengthen learning and teaching leadership in the Creative Arts disciplines (de la Harpe, Peterson, Blythe, Frankham, Vella, Street, Brien & Cahalan, 2009).

Digital Interventions Symposium: Digital Interventions in Everyday Creativity

This symposium examines how digital media are implicated in processes of change. It interrogates how people engage digital media in creative practices that intervene in their own and others’ lives, the intentionalities through which they do this, and the processes and experiences involved.

National Creative Graduate Tracking Project

What do graduates from creative degrees do in their careers? How successful are they? What makes them successful? How can universities better support students to build successful careers?

This study is the first in Australia to build a detailed picture of creative arts graduates’ career paths, and will suggest what needs to be taught in undergraduate programs to maximise chances of creative career success.
