Making Histories is a Monash collaboration with Museum Victoria (MV). On the course 50 students researched their own history projects, using local or family history sources, or the museum’s rich online collection; wrote a project proposal drawing on historical literature; scripted their research; and produced a 3 minute digital video history which is now available online via MV / Vimeo. The best videos were showcased at a Museum Victoria event for students, families and staff on 20 November 2014, and prizes were presented to the best video histories by the Museum and by Dean of Arts Rae Frances and DVC Teaching and Learning Darrell Evans. This is the most exciting and gratifying teaching I’ve been involved in, and the student work has been extraordinary, as you can see.
The prize winning videos were by Aiden McKee (Her Fondest House), Perrin Jones (The House of Haunted Minds) and Jacqueline Sexton (Amnesia). The other Showcase videos were by Eva Rivera, Hugo Dean, Lillian Alexander, Kalinda Korkman, Lisa McCreel and Matthew Topp.
