Media and Learning 2013

The Media & Learning conference will include:

Plenary Sessions
Plenary sessions include well-known and provocative speakers on the overall topic of Media Education and Literacy and how best to equip learners for open, creative learning futures. Elaborated profile pages about these speakers and their interests are available online. During plenary sessions, conference participants are invited to put forward their comments and questions to the speakers via the conference interaction service, Pigeon. These sessions are streamed live and will also be recorded and made available online after the conference.
Screening Sessions
Each screening includes a guided tour of a specific production or media-supported service, project or initiative followed by a short question and answer opportunity. The emphasis is on 'show-and-tell' which includes demonstrations of applications in some cases.
Presentation and Discussion Sessions
These sessions will be devoted to each of the main conference themes. Where relevant, experiences will be presented and examples shown and where relevant each session will be linked to an online curation space. This space provides links to relevant websites and resources many provided by the experts taking part in the session.
Discussion Sessions
These sessions provide an opportunity to engage in discussion on a specific related topic. They are led by a group of panelists with a background and interest in the discussion topic and everyone taking part in the session is invited to take part. Where relevant each discussion session is linked to an online curation space.
Demonstration Space
Building on the success and popularity of the demo area in the past, more space has been made available for the 2013 conference to explore new tools and services that can be used to enhance the learning experience. Dedicated space online will be made available to promote the tools and services included in these spaces.
Master Classes
These classes 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 which will include providing them with an extended list of references and useful resource material. Conference participants will be invited to book for these sessions beforehand.
Pre-conference workshops
Several half and whole day workshops will be organised on Wednesday 11 December in Brussels and Leuven in association with Media & Learning 2013. These events provide an opportunity to explore several specific topics in depth and are linked to on-going initiatives. Conference participants will be invited to book for these sessions beforehand.
