Future-proofing your Use of Video in Higher Education

Plenary / learn

Getting the second day of our conference off to a good start, this plenary session is all about getting the most out of video in a teaching and learning context. Our expert speakers will talk about how to help academics develop their communication skills with what for many is a new teaching medium as well as how video can fit within an innovative campus-wide strategy. We will also take a look at where video is going in general and how this will affect our work in the coming years – providing even more opportunities to those keen to harness the learning potential of video.

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.
