Theory Trading Cards

Many Media Practice students struggle with the media theory elements of their courses. The traditional lecture and seminar require very different skills from those employed in the lab, studio or on location and students often struggle to excel in both.

The trading cards game is a fun way of introducing students to a selection of top figures in cultural, media and artistic theory. Based upon the online trading cards which have been so popular at David Gauntlett's website the game is used with Level C (Year 1) students as a starting point for discussion and to build student curiosity for further reading.
