Meet the Educational Media Producers

Looking for help with producing media? Educational Media Producers in the Learning Innovation Hub (LIH) can offer fresh perspectives and specialist techniques in creating educational media resources to enhance online learning experiences at Macquarie. 

As part of the LIH Shared Services Team, Ed(ucational) Media Producers work closely with Faculty Learning & Teaching teams, LIH Learning Designers and representatives from various Offices to create high-quality, fit-for-purpose educational media resources. Their combined expertise and areas of interest span video production, animated motion graphics, photography, graphic and web design, blogging, 3D modelling and virtual reality.

The Ed Media Producers also have a variety of equipment (video cameras, still cameras, microphones and audio recorders) to loan out to the community. In addition, the team can provide training and support on the use of this equipment to create effective media for learning and teaching at varying levels; from curious beginners to production enthusiasts.

The Ed Media Producers worked extensively on two Macquarie MOOCs, providing expertise on conceptualising, filming, editing and motion graphics.
