Last week PSC celebrated the start of another exciting year, welcoming new students into the campus during Orientation. Students had the chance to mingle with their teachers, understand the course of their studies for the year and network with one another.
Students were then introduced to their mentors and assigned a fun project on Instagram titled ‘PSCProject’. They were given various themes such as #pscuglyproject, #pscfuturisticproject, #pscbadsmellproject, #pscsilenceproject and #pscdangerousproject. The PSC Instagram channel showcased students, highlighting their wonderfully diverse vision and style:
Orientation Day itself was a whirlwind of activities. Students met their mentors for the day and had a wonderful barbecue lunch with the staff, along the banks of the Yarra River. Everyone enjoyed the city views from the river and excited about their studies at PSC.
Staff also welcomed Jonathan Shaw, our visiting academic from Coventry University. Jonathan is here to spend time on campus, with his expertise in innovative learning, teaching and photographic practice in the digital age.
Jonathan finished the week with a wonderful Image Makers Seminar, where he presented topics from his book ‘NewFotoScapes’. He addressed topics related to ‘open access’, learning in the digital world and the value of photography today. Our recordings from Jonathan Shaw’s Image Makers Seminar will be posted soon.
We thank our students and staff for making the Orientation week so jubilant! The PSC family looks forward to an eventful year ahead!
