PART A | Media and Me
(Adapted from Flack, J 2004 Nelson Media)

Now is it time for us to get to know you. Complete the questions below and be ready to
share some of the answers with the class.

1. Why did you choose to study M&C? Is this an area you would like to study at
university or work in?

Because it is very interesting for me, I also want to learn some high technology skills.
Maybe I also have influenced by my father, he is a programmer, so I want to learn
more about computer.

2. Which areas of the media are you most interested in? Choose from the following
list, and/or add your own suggestions: advertising, branding, film, radio (podcasts),
television, print (newspapers, news sites and magazines), journalism, public relations,
social media, media effects and media production.

I am interested in film, television, branding and social media, because I like

watching film and television. I like some branding like Apple, Microsoft, Ubisoft,
Nintendo, Sony, Nike and Adidas. I also like reading moments.

3. Which forms of media do you interact with regularly? What purpose do you use
them for?

I always use social media to connect with others like Weibo, WeChat, QQ,
Facebook. These Apps can show you what your friends did at moments; otherwise,
these Apps can connect many people in the same time as a group. These reasons
cause I use them almost all the time.
4. Could you spend a day without media devices?

I think I can spend a day without media devices, cause there’s lot of things to do.

PART B | Media Conversations

How well do you know your classmates at this point in the semester? For this activity, you
have 15 minutes to learn as much as possible about your partner by engaging in

These conversations will be timed by your tutor, so think quick!

question focused on a different topic within Media and Communications.

2. You and your conversation partner have 5 minutes to read and respond to the same
