It's difficult to put yourself in the position of a student, particularly those well rehearsed in how to do post-graduate courses which are of the ingest "the knowledge" and regurgitate it in an agreed form. This way of working made a lot of sense before the easy availability of ideas, resources and materials via various digital media. So I need to keep the faith as it were with the conventional, but at the same time encourage behaviours that help move folk to different ways of working. Not just the digital tricks stuff which is important given how limited some skill sets are but more towards a sensibility that is more attuned to the importance of working differently. This includes how we find stuff, how we select from is often a large body of work, how we curate that work and then how we remix it so that it serves a useful, in this case, professional purpose.
