The Media & Learning 2016 Conference is aimed at practitioners and policy makers who want to contribute to the development of digital and media skills in education and find new and effective ways to embed media into the learning process.
Media & Learning 2016 is the place to be if you are interested in the latest developments, services and uses of media in education and training. Aimed at both policy makers and practitioners, the purpose of this annual event is to identify policies and initiatives that promote digital and media competence at all levels of education and training as well as to promote best-practice in the take-up and application of media in education and training.
At this conference we will be discussing:
the urgency of embedding digital and media literacy skills amongst the European workforce
how best to convince stakeholders about the importance of embedding digital and media skills amongst learning professionals and learners at all levels of education and training
The conference will include:
practical learning opportunities showing how you can apply all types of media in education and training through workshops and hands-on training sessions
information sessions describing lots of different initiatives and developments linked to this field supported by European and national programmes
sessions linked to the MEDEA Awards 2016, a competition now in its eight year that recognises and rewards excellence in this field. These sessions will feature winners and finalists from the past and current competitions.
