Digital Media Lecturer, Central Queensland University
I’m Jim Picton and I'm a Course-Coordinator and Lecturer on the Bachelor of Digital Media staff at Central Queensland University, Noosa. Yes, that 'other university' on the Sunshine Coast.
I’m a registered school teacher and have experience across a range of educational roles including teaching multimedia & art for Education Queensland, and developing flexible learning products as a Captain in the Royal Australian Army Educational Corps. I also spent three years working as an entertainer at Dreamworld on the Gold Coast; I learned nothing but had a ball.
Practising what I preach, I'm a devotee of lifelong learning: I hold a Grad Dip Creative Industries, Grad Dip of Learning & Teaching and Bachelor of Multimedia. I’m currently trying to restrict my areas of interest to World War 1 War Artists & Virtual Reality so that I can commence the journey towards a PhD.
Time permitting, I pursue freelance traditional & digital artwork, watch Dr Who and surf badly. I spend so much time in the water, I should simply say that 'I enjoy swimming'.
