Masters of Digital Media program Executive Director Dr. Gerri Sinclair was in Beijing last week to deliver lectures to students at some of China's top schools. Dr. Sinclair's talks focussed on Careers in the Digital Media Industry and highlighted some of the opportunities of the MDM program.
The tour included the distinguished Peking University (China's first national university); Renmin University of China (RUC, a comprehensive and research-oriented institution also known as the People's University of China); the Communication University of China (previously the Beijing Broadcasting Institute and known as the "cradle of China’s radio and television talents"), as well as Beijing Normal University (an education university with over 100 years of history). All four are considered among China's key universities.
At Renmin University, Dr. Sinclair's talk was hosted by Vice President of the Design Department of Xu Beihong's Art School and lead of the New Media Studio at RUC, Tong Yan (at left in the photo at the top). Serving as interpreter for the talk was recently admitted MDM student Dashan Yue from Peking University (PKU). Dashan will be beginning his studies in September 2009.
