David Felipe Acosta Rojas, Colombia (Class of 0)
(Heritage Dual Degree 2021-2022)
My time during the Dual Degree has been quite interesting, to say the least. I have experienced it in a different way and along the way, I have strengthened relationships with the community of heritage students.
During the first trimester at Deakin, the biggest change was the rhythm of online learning. Practically, it has allowed me to be involved in a learning environment with all the resources and tools to freely move back and forth among the themes and topics of the units. With the units of Digital Interpretation and Intangible Cultural Heritage, there was a rich amount of content to examine and explore at different stages of the trimester.
Through my previous experience as a museum professional, I had not been a big user of technology and media strategies. The unit of Digital Interpretation was an exciting opportunity to think and explore further upon communication strategies that contribute to expand museums and enhance exhibition experiences. I enjoyed this unit and the approach to museums from a creative perspective and the imagine possibilities that are facilitated through digital media.
I am looking forward to keep being creative and explore more topics in the next trimester.
