Members’ Day 2017: Creativity, Copyright and Citation

This year our annual members’ day will look at the issues of creativity, copyright and citation with the use of audiovisual in education. The Learning on Screen AGM will also take place during the day. 

Friday 1 December, 10 am – 3 pm

Geological Society, Burlington House, Piccadilly, Mayfair, London W1J 0BD

Audiovisual can support creativity in teaching, learning and research across all subject areas, so for our members’ day this year we will hear from a range of speakers about how and why they use it in their work. With presentations, demonstrations, case studies and an expert panel discussion, the day will outline how to find and use a wide range of audiovisual content, supported with metadata. We will also hear about ways to reduce the environmental impact of creating new audiovisual material.

Understanding the copyright implications of using audiovisual materials in teaching, learning and research remains a priority issue for our members and the day will cover the latest research and guidance on this. The final piece of the jigsaw is understanding how to correctly cite the use of audiovisual material and our newly updated academic citation guidelines will also be presented on the day.
