SAE takes learning online

 As part of our ongoing effort to keep students & staff healthy and safe, SAE has transitioned to a flexible blended learning environment.  

Check out how the SAE CREW are staying creative and connected

In the space of a few short weeks - and in direct response to COVID-19 - SAE has transitioned from traditional face-to-face learning to a new model of blended delivery where students continue to learn and stay engaged with their courses in audio, gaming, animation, film and other creative industry disciplines, largely from the safety of their own homes. For students who still want to access the SAE campus studios and technical equipment, strict social distancing protocols have been put in place. 

Since moving to the flexible blended learning model, lecturers and students alike have reported the sense of camaraderie that is alive and well in the virtual classrooms. And that’s not the only positive that has been observed, students also say that retaining their study schedule has given them a source of continuity, hope and affirmation in an uncertain world.  

Working together through the screens doesn’t hamper the learning experience either, class interactions remain lively and engaging and student collaborations continue to be fostered.

Students are empowered to continue to take their lives and careers to new heights through virtual classrooms and online space, creating new opportunities for innovative education and creative connections. 

General Manager of SAE Australasia Matt Evans said learning to study and collaborate remotely would be a valuable skill for students in years to come. 

“The creative industries are built largely on a foundation of remote practice and collaborating with creatives who live in different towns - and sometimes different countries. 

“An unexpected and hugely positive outcome arising from our transition to remote teaching has been the expansion of our digital practices in the classroom. It is inspiring to see opportunities arise from moments of extreme challenge,”  Mr Evans says.
