Audiovisual and Media Education in the World (in comparison with Poland). A conference taking place on 23 November 2012, Warsaw, Poland


The Polish Film Institute, and the Centre for Open Multimedia Education, University of Warsaw, in partnership with the Department of Rhetoric and Media, Institute of Applied Polish Studies, University of Warsaw and Eureka Media Ltd. are organising a one-day conference on 23 November 2012, with the aim of identifying the state of audiovisual and media education in the world and conducting a discussion on the potential in the Polish context. The conference will be a gathering of audiovisual and media theoreticians and practitioners.

By audiovisual and media education we mean both education in the field of the media, particularly film (including the study of using multimedia tools), and the use of media in education in other fields. We will offer talks (given live and online) from 6 countries, a talk on the policies of the European Union in this field (in a global context), and a talk and discussion presenting predictions of the future of audiovisual and media education in Poland.

The areas under discussion – which ought to be reflected in each 20-minute talk referring to a specific country – are as follows:

1. The present state (2012): the legal bases of education in these fields, institutions working with this branch of education, educational levels, special subjects at various levels of education, access of students to equipment and technology (the Internet), degree subjects and educational institutions offering this kind of education at various educational stages, opinions on the current state as of 2012, the main problems to solve, evaluations of the current situation;

2. Planned changes – their conceptual foundation, a timeline, initiators and supporters of change, state institutional assistance, planned relations with the media and business community, education for the “digitally excluded”, treating the loss of computer literacy;

3. Case study – a description of a successful project or event in the field of audiovisual and media education (e.g. an e-learning platform, a syllabus, an interactive radio or TV programme, a set of teaching materials etc.).

The conference languages will be English and Polish. There will be translations of the Polish part of the discussion for English-speaking participants.
