Universität Osnabrück, Germany, Wageningen University & Research, The Netherlands and RCSI, Ireland join

 The Media & Learning Association is delighted to announce that 3 new organisational members have recently joined. The first of these is Universität Osnabrück in Germany, represented by the Center for Digital Teaching, Information Management and Higher Education Didactics (virtUOS) which offers centralised e-Learning services for the university. The focus of virtUOS is not only to provide consultancy around digital teaching but also to develop open source tools and to enable teachers to use state of the art e-Learning techniques. Wageningen University & Research in the Netherlands is represented by the dept of Educational Student Affairs. This department believes that video has a vital role to play in today’s and tomorrow’s education. Besides being able to inspire students in a way that can be difficult for any other medium, video has the power to solve difficult problems that teachers face every day. Also, it empowers teachers to elevate their teaching by showing subjects or situations that would otherwise be impossible to show. More and more innovators involved in medical teaching and learning are exploring media based tools and techniques to enhance their initial and continuing training offer. One of the leading faculties in the field of nursing and midwifery is part of the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI) and so we are delighted to announce that this faculty has recently become a member of the Media & Learning Association. The Faculty of Nursing and Midwifery is committed to supporting the professional development and learning needs of nurses, midwives, and medical professionals at all career stages. They constantly seek out evidence-based, innovative solutions to help their dedicated stakeholders achieve professional excellence for the benefit of patients.
