In spring 2015, the Faculty of Media, Arts and Design will launch a new module, 'Creative Encounters', designed to bring together second-year students from across the Faculty to collaborate on creative projects.

Students from different departments will be given the opportunity to work together and explore collaborative working practices across disciplines within the media and creative industries. The intention is to simulate the multidisciplinary environments that students are likely to enter after graduation.

The module aims to foster skills such as team working, negotiation and mentoring. It will provide a platform to experiment with new ways of working, and apply and adapt existing models of collaboration, whilst producing a project, event or business model linked to an external audience.

The module is led by David Gauntlett and Silke Lange, both experienced creative practitioners with interests in collaboration and innovation.

Further information will be made available to students in autumn 2014.
