In 2020, I became the Marketing Coordinator for the UOW Digital Media Society. Through my work at the DMS, I have had to think like a Futurist to overcome the short-term barriers that might prevent the club from running in 2020-21.
There has been much frustration about the way that remote delivery of university subjects has been handled. Whether it be students who are not getting their perceived value out of their subjects, or overworked and underpaid teaching staff, everyone is exhausted. Because of this, how we learn and the methods that we have thought of as necessary to learn have come into question.
I learnt to listen to people's words - words they use often, words they hold onto, words they just can't say. Because it is these words that reveal the intrinsic values of a person.
