This subject examines changes to the global media environment in order to ready future knowledge workers for the rapidly changing professional employment market. Among the most profound of the changes in communications in recent years are global communication networks, digitalisation, mobile content creation and delivery, human-machine interaction, virtualisation, artificial intelligence, big data and democratisation of video, sound and text. These global media trends are examined in their social context drawing on interdisciplinary studies that include humanities, arts, social sciences and business.
