Welcome to Media & Learning 2019

Plenary / learn

Artificial Intelligence(AI), Virtual Learning and Immersion look set to be the talking points for much of Media & Learning 2019. We have invited several well-known experts to share their thoughts on these and related topics during our opening plenary session.
So let's get the conversation started......

Moderator: Anke Pesch, LIMEL, KU Leuven, Belgium

Coffee Break

According to wikipedia, the 'coffee break' allegedly originated in the late 19th century in Wisconsin, USA with the wives of Norwegian immigrants - but in conference terms it has come to mean the time when you meet old friends and catch up on news and developments.

Added value lecture capture

Presentations / learn

This presentation session is all about getting the most out of lecture capture and addressing the concerns many people have about attendance and attainment.

Moderator: Emily Nordmann, University of Glasgow, UK

Law and the educational video producer

Discussions / talk

Join this discussion which is all about the increasing number of legal issues university services face. Starting from a discussion about how videos and other creative works can be lawfully re-used under EU copyright law for educational and artistic purposes, this part of the discussion will also provide an opportunity to hear about the latest developments in EU copyright legislation, in particular the Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market.

The discussion will then move onto the data protection challenges that arise from the use of media in the learning context, particularly with the coming into force of GDPR.

Discussants:

Practice what you speech – the value of podcasts

Workshops / learn

How can educational podcasts innovate your teaching and learning? In this workshop I will share experiences on podcast design and production for MOOCs and SPOCs at the Centre for Innovation and tell some findings from my own research. We will listen to different educational podcast examples, reflect together and exchange ideas. Why would you start podcasting as a teacher? What podcasts formats exist and what works well for online or blended education? Think about: audio lectures, interviews, debates, on-location stories and student-generated podcasts to activate learning. How can teachers be trained to produce their own podcasts, what support is needed?

In small groups you will brainstorm on an educational podcast design and you will have the opportunity to try-out recording the first part of your podcast to get a feel with the medium. Overall, during this workshop you will explore if and how podcasts are an added value for (online) learning and get practical insights to start podcasting yourself
