The Media & Learning 2018: Video in Higher Education Conference will include:
Plenary sessions include well-known and provocative speakers as well as senior policy and other representative figures speaking on the topic of video in higher education. These sessions will be recorded and made available online after the conference.
Demonstration space: Picture it!
The demonstration area will be at the heart of the conference agenda and will include exhibition spaces and demonstrations by companies and organisations of leading-edge tools and services that are highly relevant for participants. Stands will be open throughout the conference programme from Thursday morning till Friday afternoon. If you are interested in booking one of these spaces, contact the organisers to receive the sponsorship and demonstration brochure.
Presentation Sessions: Learn about it!
These sessions feature presentations by experts and experienced practitioners followed by audience discussion and interaction. They will take place in a traditional presentation area with audiovisual support and will be recorded. They include case studies, presentations of relevant research findings, pilot and project reports on innovative tools and practices and will be selected largely through the call for ideas and the input of the Conference Advisory Committee.
Screening Sessions: Watch it!
These sessions feature screenings of highly engaging video materials based on new formats, new approaches and/or new topics. They will be held in the small cinema in STUK and where possible will be introduced by the producer or member of the production team. If you have a production that you would like us to feature in one of our screening sessions, then tell us about it in the call for ideas.
Discussion Sessions: Talk about it!
These sessions are all about participation where you are welcome to join in discussions about relevant challenges and issues facing our community at this time. These discussions will be used to share ideas, to build communities or interest and to help tease out some of the quandaries that many of us face in our professional lives. If you have a topic that you want to raise and discuss in one of these sessions, then let us know in the call for ideas.
Workshops: Find out more about it!
Workshops can be either 40 or 90 minutes long and are open to a max of 20 people. These workshops provide an opportunity to go in depth into a particular subject. They will be led by experts, the numbers of participants will be limited and the objective is to provide participants with a specialised introduction to a topic. Participants will be invited to book for these workshops beforehand and booking will be on a ‘first come first served’ basis. If you have a proposal for a workshop, then let us know in the call for ideas.
