Tracing the future of a media-enhanced learning world

Plenary

In this plenary session, speakers will explore how the learning landscape is changing taking into account the changing nature of engagement, the shifts in expectations and the radically different environments in which students today are living. Who are these learners, what do they expect and how can we provide relevant and motivating learning contexts for them which make the best use of the increasingly media-rich world in which we all live.

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. During Media and Learning we plan to improve on this idea by making sure you also meet new people and will be providing you with a participants list and a code for contacting anyone attending the conference using your mobile phone. This way you can use the coffee break to really expand your network .... and don't worry - we will also be providing coffee, tea and fresh drinks!

Come and play
During the coffee breaks and lunches you can also visit the dedicated Play Area in the dining and networking space where you can try out and use different devices and applications in an informal and friendly manner. This Play Area is managed by conference staff and with the input of several teachers.

Lecture capture – a solution for students too lazy to get out of bed or a fundamental change in teaching practices in higher education?

Presentation
Moderator: Clive Young, University College London, UK

Using scientific images in higher education – from theory to practice

Workshop

During this session the Federica Web Learning team will put forward a theoretical framework for the creation and use of scientific images in higher education. They will present examples to illustrate the pedagogical effectiveness of using (scientific) images in education and to show different design and screen-writing frameworks for creating image-based educational material.

They will be discussing:
- Interaction, Simulation and 3D Immersive Environments: rationale and effectiveness
- Generative arts and design for teaching and learning
- Rights management and licenses (national copyright laws, free royalties and Creative Commons material)

These sessions are intended as an open forum and contributions are welcome from universities and other institutions anywhere in the world that showcase the use of images for innovative teaching in higher education (infographics, microscope photography, interactive mindmaps, science imagery etc.).

Participating practitioners include: Sara Valla, University of Parma; Ruth Kerr & Ilaria Merciai, Federica Web Learning team, University of Naples Federico II.

Facilitator: Rosanna de Rosa, University of Naples Federico II, Italy

VISIR’s Learning Innovation Workshop – promoting innovation and creativity in the regions

This workshop will include the opportunity for online collaboration and discussion before, during and after the workshop session. It is led by partners in the VISIR project and organised by:

INgeBEELD - the new digital platform from CANON to support media literacy in Flanders

Screening

This platform represents a major large-scale initiative led by the CANON unit of the Flemish Ministry of Education and Training, BAM (Flemish institute for visual, audio visual and media art) and the national public service broadcaster, VRT. The platform is an open, digital learning environment in which pupils, students, teachers and lecturers work together to increase multimedia literacy on the basis of relevant best practice. The projects on this platform are being developed in collaboration with future teachers who are developing a new methodology for the use of media in the classroom. This session will be led by An Feyfer from CANON Cultuurcel, Belgium and and Dries Moreels from BAM, Belgium, it will include a demonstration of the platform and members of the audience are invited to comment on the platform and share their own experiences.
