Lectures & Teaching Experience
Driven by her interdisciplinary background and experience in academic as well as industry settings, Polina Zioga’s approach to teaching and research supervision aims to bridge theory and practice through research. She is currently contributing in the Department of Film, Media and Journalism at the School of Computing and Digital Technologies, Staffordshire University. She is leading the "American and International Cinema" Level 6 module in the BA (Hons) Film, TV and Radio Course, while also teaching in the Film Production Technology BSc (Hons) Course and supervising Media Dissertations, Final Year Projects (FYP) and Ph.D. students. She helps students to identify their areas of interest, discover their seeds of originality and gradually become independent creative practitioners and thinkers. Her students have won awards in international competitions including the Wildlife Vaasa International Nature Film Festival (Finland), the European Meeting of Youth Audiovisual Creation (Greece) and others.
Full-time Ph.D. and MRes supervision is available in the following, but not limited to, areas:
