Digital Arts Lab Showcase 2022: Competition Results
The Faculty of Arts promotes digital learning and teaching innovation through the Digital Arts Lab (DAL). The Digital Arts Lab Showcase is an annual event where students are invited to submit their best piece of academic work or personal artefacts created through or about digital tools. This can be an academic assessment which utlises a digital tool (for example a video, podcast or website), a personal endeavour that uses or showcases a digital tool, or a short piece of writing that comments on the digital world (both fiction and non-fiction welcome). Each submission has to be accompanied by a reflective piece, which captures the learners' journey in producing the digital piece. Individual and group submissions are accepted and this year for the first time the DAL Showcase had separate undergraduate and postgraduate categories.
As in previous years, the panel judging the Showcase had the enjoyable task of listening and watching all the entries. Topics covered ranged from a podcast looking at how the legacy of slavery leading to institutionalised racism impacted 1950s rock and roll and still influences the modern music industry to a digital game focusing on women's experiences in early modern Britain.
