As our economy increasingly moves towards automation & casualization, and increases rates of technology uptake, the role of professional societies needs to change. As such, my Digital Artefact will track the evolution and future strategic planning for the Digital Media Society at UOW.
The advent of social media & technologies requires professional associations and student clubs at universities to reinvent themselves; no longer is it valuable to only release a quarterly magazine or run infrequent networking events. Associations need to constantly engage their audiences, both through online and in-person channels. Technological development is leading to a reality where casualization is rife, workers cannot keep up with rapid changes and are made obsolete, and affects both blue-collar and white-collar jobs alike (Novak & Dizdarevic, 2018). This overall challenging of the social contract, through so-called “crowd-based capitalism” will radically restructure the pillar institutions of market capitalism (Sundararajan, 2017).
