Conference: Podcasting for Education

Venue: University of Warwick
2 and 3 April 2008, 9.45 – 5.30pm

This new conference, Podcasting for Education, is designed for all staff in further and higher education with responsibility for teaching and learning, the student experience and marketing and communications.

Don’t let podcasting be something your colleagues do – this new technology has many applications in FHE and this conference aims to demystify this new phenomenon. The conference speakers will review podcasting as a tool and the tracks for both professional service staff and academics will explore the potential in podcasting and the interfaces that lie between the academic learning and research environment and the communications world.

<You can attend over one or two days. Day one presents the theory and a host of case studies, with a keynote address from Apple; day two is the practical and provides you with a unique opportunity to produce your own podcast using Warwick’s facilities.

Other confirmed speakers include: Teachers TV, GCap Media plc, Futurelab, and the universities of Aberdeen, Bradford, Exeter, Glamorgan, Middlesex, and Westminster, together with our conference partners, the communications team at Warwick.

Places are limited, so book now to take advantage of the early bird discount rates (simply register before the closing date of 22 February 2008 to secure your discount). For more information go to: www.discoveringfutures.com and download the brochure and booking form.

Discovering Futures’ brings dynamic ideas to further and higher education, in collaboration with Barkers Education team and the Guardian Media Group.
