DIT’s Learning, Teaching & Technology Centre, with the support of the National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning, is delighted to host the very first Spring Academy on Video in Education, Wednesday 18th to Friday 20th February. This 3-day event at DIT Aungier St offers participants an opportunity for hands-on training and practical advice in the production and use of video in higher education. Topics covered include screencasting, lecture capture, presenting to camera, emoderating, video production and editing (a final schedule will be available from next week).  The guest speaker is Professor Gilly Salmon, the Pro Vice-Chancellor of Education Innovation, at the University of Western Australia, who is renowned for her contribution to the discussion around the use of new technologies in education. The guest workshop facilitators will be Dr. Eugene O’Loughlin (NCI) and David Quin (IADT) both of whom have a vast amount of experience in the area of video in education specifically. Also, we will be linking live over the course of the three days with our Spring Academy partners at NUIG and WIT who will be running similar workshops locally (see http://elearning.wit.ie/springacademy).

Places are limited to 20 participants: if you are interested in attending, please complete the online booking form . Preference will be given to participants who plan to attend all three days.

Any queries can be directed to Dr. Kevin O’Rourke, Dr. Frances Boylan, or Dr. Pauline Rooney at DIT. Contact details can be found here.
