Media and Learning Association

New universities from the Netherlands, Ireland and the US join association as full members

Over the past couple of months, the membership of the association has been growing. Just before our conference in June we were delighted to welcome  the Centre for Innovation, Leiden University as a new member. The Centre consists of a multi-disciplinary team (interaction designers, learning experience designers, media makers – 36 staff members in all) exploring how education can be innovated with digital technologies. They do this by running pilots throughout the university and its seven faculties, testing new technologies and developing new media tools (like VR, AR) themselves.Then over the summer, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the US and the National University of Ireland (NUI) Galway, Ireland. joined. In MIT the responsibility for membership is led by the Office of Open Learning, known for its highly innovative work with VR, augmented reality and AI. In NUI, responsibility for membership is led by the Centre for Excellence in Learning and Teaching (CELT) who’s mission is to foster a culture of excellence in teaching and learning; promoting methods that encourage active learner engagement and critical thinking.
