Description

The BUFVC’s annual Learning on Screen conference takes place on 19 and 20 September 2006 at the Old Library in the Custard Factory in Birmingham’s revolutionary new arts and media quarter in the city’s regeneration zone. Learning on Screen promotes and celebrates excellence in the production, study and use of moving pictures and related media in teaching, learning, training and research. The event provides an excellent meeting place for teachers, librarians, broadcasters, digital media producers, distributors, service providers, and technology vendors.

This year’s conference themes are:

Virtual Learning Environments – embedding moving pictures – proprietary or open source?
Large Scale Video and Sound Digitisation Projects – updates and demonstrations
Copyright – exceptions, licensing and the delivery and use of content
Pod-casting and Interactive Television – their possible value in learning and teaching

Speakers include Stuart Dempster (JISC Digitisation Programme), Ian Dolphin (SAKAI Project), Ray Lawrence (howtomoodle), Sol Picciotto (Law Department, University of Lancaster), Charles Oppenheim (Department of Information Studies, University of Loughborough), Nick Townend (BUFVC) and David Smith (Real Networks). Also taking place on 19 September will be the Learning on Screen Awards ceremony and dinner, hosted by Robert Llewellyn (HOLLYWOOD SCIENCE, RED DWARF, SCRAPHEAP CHALLENGE) and Dr Jonathan Hare (HOLLYWOOD SCIENCE, ROUGH SCIENCE).
