Dr Karen Sutherland
University of the Sunshine Coast
Karen spoke to how they renovated their course creation approach, working to avoid the 'talking head effect' and incorporate the use of Adobe Stock.
University of the Sunshine Coast embeds their students into relevant industry positions. This enables them to learn while studying about the kind of content that they can create to mix and create professional content for real-world clients.
The students could use keywords and the available organisational credits in Adobe Stock to find multimedia assets that are directly relevant to their client, making their brief and output far more professional than it might otherwise look like if they were restricted free services, or to creating their own assets.
Karen demonstrated the searches, filters and collections that Adobe Stock users can access.
Karen has also observed a positive change to the quality of the content that teaching staff can create, enabling them to increase not just the outputs but the TRUST that students have in their teachers, seeing examples of their own creative projects using the same resources.

Agency and Volition and the personal impact on the human experience
The insights into human behaviour that have come about through the pandemic (i.e. panic buying) is evidence of the irrational actions that people will take in order to assert control (a feeling of autonomy) when they are in a situation where they feel their personal power is reduced.
Dan stressed that guidelines and boundaries are crucial, but there is a fine balance to be struck. It is critical to recognise where people (students) can be given more voice so they can talk about their own learning, rather than having their experience dictated to them.
An example of this is digital reports, where the student themselves talks about what their aims, goals and choices in learning are for the term.
If most outcomes (particularly as students get older) talk about the 'ability to demonstrate understanding', students should be given the opportunity to select their methodology to demonstrate their understanding in order to create more autonomy in their learning experience.
