Media design and production is teamwork. The team may be full-time staff
who work together in an ongoing basis, or brought together just for the
duration of the project.
As you have read, you will be forming a work team to assist you in originating
and developing a design concept. As part of this process you will be seeking
out and forming collaborative partnerships with other students who are
undertaking or have completed their training. You will need to establish
a bond with the person, find common work methods and interests, and maintain
these across the training period. Your choice of Buddy and other team
members will be somewhat limited, but even in a workplace you may not
have any control over who you work with, the team for a project may well
be decided before you come on board. The broader the contacts you make
the better, but remember that as much as you are seeking responses from
other team members, they are seeking responses from you.
Remember, throughout the training the number of contacts and responses
you make with other team members will be assessed.
