At a 2012 state conference designed for teachers of media, teacher Bruce McLaverty uses industry connections to design and present a session for other teachers aimed at improving lighting in student films. In the illustration, he reflects on the importance for student engagement, and for the quality of student learning, of teachers being aware of industry-based standards, techniques and skills.
This professional learning session was presented at the 2012 Australian Teachers of Media Victorian Conference. It was presented to teachers of Media with different levels of experience. The teacher planned the session in recognition of the impact of technology in media classrooms, where teachers and students often have access to a significant range of software and hardware but may not be using elements such as industry-based lighting standards to improve their film making.
