Pushing the envelope at the next Video in Higher Education Conference 5-6 June 2019

Together with our partners in LIMEL, KU Leuven we have now finalised the full list of themes for the 2019 Media and Learning conference on Video in Higher Education taking place in Leuven, Belgium on 5-6 June 2019. One of the themes expected to attract a lot of attention is on combining Streaming Video with Artificial Intelligence to create searchable, automated, interest driven, video-based services and the organisers are delighted to announce that one of the keynote speakers will be Donald Clarke from Wildfire Learning who will focus specifically on this theme.

The other themes that will be used to build the agenda are: 

  • Added value lecture capture and addressing concerns about attendance and attainment
  • Quality yardsticks for do-it-yourself video productions in academic settings
  • Accessibility standards and practices for educational video
  • Supporting pedagogical innovation through video
  • Law and the educational video producer, keeping up-to-date with the latest developments in privacy and copyright
  • Video as an open educational resource, contributing to, establishing, and managing video-based knowledge pools
  • Fuelling interactivity, turning video into a responsive learning resource
  • Video micro-lectures and knowledge clips, where to find them, how to use them, how to make them
  • Video repositories, types, purposes, business models, usage, long-term content retention
  • Effective practices and experiences of using video as an assessment tool
  • Educational podcasts and their affordances
  • 360˚ Video, 3D, 4K, Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality
