Graduate subject - Information Management - 400 level

Description

This subject introduces students to user-centred information design and architecture principles. These are applied specifically to the development of information products and services that facilitate a variety of communication interactions. Content management and organisation is examined in relation to models for designing and structuring information and communication products. These models are evaluated in terms of their appropriate application to the opportunities and capabilities available for distributing information across a range of print and multimedia. Policies and key issues such as accessibility, ethics, intellectual property, privacy and security, publishing, usability and online teaching and learning are related specifically to implications for accessing, using and sharing knowledge. On a practical level, students develop professional capabilities for translating information architectures into web materials using web authoring and HTML skills. They also develop professional communication and collaboration skills by working in teams to meet collectively negotiated goals.
