Just to highlight this free seminar from an MLA eBulletin. I'd be
grateful if you would pass onto anyone who may be interested. A joint
event with the Teaching Development Agency who are encouraging teacher
training institutions to install and use video-conferencing equipment.
Places are going very fast!!!!
Introduction to Videoconferencing Seminar
Videoconferencing is an area that many cultural sector organisations and
teacher training providers wish to explore, but feel that they need more
help in planning and implementing systems and solutions. Some
organisations are not sure how to proceed, and many projects have
experienced delays and several have had to rethink their whole approach
before making progress. However, the power of the using this form of
outreach was demonstrated by the recent national videoconference to
mark the Bicentenary of the Abolition of the Slave Trade, which included
Culture Minister David Lammy and Baroness Amos.
In order to help address the planning and implementation issues, the TDA
and MLA in partnership with JANET <http://www.ja.net/> will be hosting
an event dedicated to raising videoconferencing awareness and to promote
the use of videoconferencing via the JANET Videoconferencing Service
The event will be held on Friday 25th May 2007 at the Isaac Newton
Centre for Continuing Professional Development in London, part of the
Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea City Learning Centre.
