MELSIG: Digital Media Interaction and Inclusivity
9th September 2014
Brighton and Sussex Medical School (BSMS) Teaching Building
University of Sussex
The Media Enhanced Learning Special Interest Group (MELSIG) recognises the enormous potential of digital media as an enabler for inclusive practice and wider educational change.
This one day event asks us to consider how digital media can be used positively to address disadvantage in teaching and learning, and in disciplinary practice. It will also explore the challenges and opportunities facing individuals (students, teachers and practitioners) operating in professional contexts.
The day will address questions like ‘how effective are digital tools at supporting inclusive learning?’, ‘what challenges do they create?’, ‘how important is it to be aware of our digital footprint?’ and ‘what guidance/measures should be offered or put in place to help teachers and students manage and protect their professional identity online?
Attendance is free but places are limited therefore early registration is recommended.
