Opening Plenary

Plenary / learn

Media & Learning 2018: Video in Higher Education is all about highlighting the latest pedagogical and technical developments in the field of video supported and video enhanced learning. With more than half of all universities across Europe integrating video into their services, now is the time to take stock of what this development implies from both a learning as well as a service provision perspective and to benefit from the experience of others.

This opening plenary session will set the scene for the next two days, kick-start the conversations that we need to have and help to inspire everyone involved with relevant information, provocative questions and great advice.

Legal and ethical issues affecting video use in higher education

Can Higher Education Institutions use evidence from lecture capture to take disciplinary measures against lecturers or students? How will future regulations on Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) in education and OER affect access to video resources? What impact do laws related to access have on video service providers in higher education?
