Dates Announced for Media & Learning Conference 2012

The third annual Media & Learning Conference will take place in Brussels on 14-15 November 2012. Aimed at policy makers, service providers and practitioners, Media & Learning 2012 brings together a community of people interested in how media can be used to support learning across all sectors. It investigates topics such as media literacy and re-use of media based resources in education as well as broader issues related to innovation, creativity, ICT skills and digital competence.

Media & Learning 2012 is organised in collaboration with the Flemish Ministry of Education and Training and the European Commission Directorate-General for Education and Culture. The conference is held at the Flemish Ministry of Education and Training Headquarters in Brussels. The programme will consist of many new features, including debates, exchanges and online elements. It also includes the annual awards ceremony for the MEDEA Awards, as well as presentations and input from all finalists in the 2012 competition.

The conference builds on the success of Media & Learning 2011, where EUscreen demonstrated its portal to a target group of education professionals and took part in a discussion on business models. All this amidst a packed programme, full of talks, discussions and demonstrations. The 2011 conference attracted over 298 people from 39 countries.

  • Interested individuals, project teams, institutions and organisations are invited to submit proposals for presentations, demonstrations and workshops. The closing date for submissions is 1 June 2012. Also, if you would like to be involved in the development of the conference programme, you are welcome to contact the organisers.
  • More information including the public call for input will be available from the Media & Learning Conference website shortly:
