We would like to invite you to register for the Media & Learning 2011 Conference on 24-25 November 2011 in Brussels which is being organised in collaboration with the Flemish Ministry of Education. This event will take place in the Flemish Ministry of Education Headquarters in Brussels. The conference programme is now available.
This conference is aimed at practitioners and policy makers who want to find new and effective ways to use media to enhance the learning process. The conference has three main themes; future trends and developments in media-supported learning, digital and media production skills and competences including media literacy, and the use and re-use of existing media resources in education and training at all levels. Registration is now open on the conference website.
Highlights of the conference include keynote presentations by Belgian child psychiatrist Peter Adriaenssens who argues that creative education is essential for the development of the brain and personality of children and Richard Harper, Principal Researcher at Microsoft Research in Cambridge, UK. Screenings showing excellent examples of media usage to support learning from Thomson Reuters in the UK, TV.Klasse in Belgium, Nanyang Technological University in Singapore and finalists in the MEDEA Awards 2011 along with discussion sessions, workshops and demonstrations combine to create a packed programme of activities.
