Video is everywhere today: it has entered our lives, transforming the way we live, work, learn, communicate and play. In education, video can be found at the heart and the helm of some of the most innovative trends in higher education: to achieve deeper learning during face-to-face time, as primary part of content in distance and blended learning situations, especially in MOOCs. This one day workshop aims to bring together some of the most innovative practitioners involved in providing video services in European Higher Education Institutions to discuss and exchange experiences, to highlight collective challenges and to explore opportunities for collaboration. It builds on the successful workshops held on lecture capture in Leuven in 2012 and 2013 prior to the Media & Learning Conference.

This full day pre-conference event is organised by the Media & Learning Association SIG on Video in Higher Education in association with the new SIG Media & Education from SURFnet in the Netherlands which brings together the previous work of the WEBstroom and Weblectures SIGs.

Future Classroom Lab Visit

Location: European Schoolnet
19 November 2014, 14:30-17:00
Registration is available through the Media & Learning Conference registration page.

The Future Classroom Lab has been created to help visualise how conventional classrooms and other learning spaces can be reorganised to support changing styles of teaching and learning. It has been designed as a “Living Lab” for how ICT can be implemented in schools and where policy makers, ICT suppliers, teachers and educational researchers can come together to:

  • Rethink how new technologies can support the educational reform process at both national and European level
  • Engage in regular workshops, seminars and courses on how existing and emerging technologies can have a transformative effect on teaching and learning processes
  • Develop new economic models in order that teaching and learning activities designed for the future classroom can be mainstreamed and taken to scale

During the visit to the Future Classroom Lab you will be able to:

  • Discover six different learning spaces, each of which highlighting specific areas of learning and teaching and helping to rethink different points: physical space, resources, changing roles of student and teacher, and how to support different learning styles
  • Learn about EUN projects linked with the Future Classroom Lab (iTEC, CPDLab, Living Schools Lab)
  • See and test learning technologies for schools

The number of places in the visit session are limited so an early booking is recommended.
