Managing and innovating video-based services in Higher Education
This one day Media & Learning Online Conference will take place on Thursday 6 May and is aimed at everyone interested in enhancing teaching and learning in higher education with the support of media.
The conference programme is focussed on the following topics:
Successful online teaching with educational media – now and in the future
The production of educational multimedia in universities has gone into overdrive with the crisis, but is it effective and what principles and evidence can we use to make sure what we are producing is really having the impact that we want? How can we avoid screen fatigue and is the quality of what we are doing in the crisis living up to the promise of online teaching?
Support services that facilitate the changing roles and expectations of teaching staff
Higher education institutions adopt different models for supporting teaching staff who both want and need to teach effectively online with the support of educational multimedia. What works best in terms of directly facilitating active learning? should support services operate in a centralised or a de-centralised manner? and where to draw the line between providing multimedia teaching resources to staff or helping them to create their own?
Podcasting – Meet educational technology’s new super-hero!
The interest in podcasting in higher education is on the rise with both students and teaching staff recognising the value and impact that a well-crafted podcast can deliver. What are the formats that work best and are certain types of approaches to podcasting more effective in higher education? What kinds of facilities and training do teaching staff need to create – and deliver – high quality podcasts?
Multimedia resource storage and re-use – bin it or keep it!
As data storage in higher education institutions, just like everywhere else, begins to keel over with the sheer volume of data that needs to be stored, with video being one of the main culprits we would like to explore the topic of storage from the point of view of retention policies, who stores what? For how long? Under what conditions? Should teaching staff be responsible for storing their own resources and if so, under what conditions?
