M&L Pre-Conference Workshop 2014: Video in Higher Education

Wednesday, November 19, 2014 - 10:00 - 17:15
Ministry of Education and Training, Brussels


Get in the Picture: Innovative Use of Video in Higher Education

Wednesday 19 November 2014, 10:00 - 17:15 at the Ministry of Education and Training, Brussels

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.
