With a panel of experts discussing the changing landscape of AV in an educational environment, this half-day conference is filled with tips and tricks for implementing innovative technology solutions that have lasting impact. Panellists will touch on using technology for inclusive learning and delegates will hear from a student’s perspective about how they use learning spaces.

Back by popular demand on Tuesday 11 February in Room E102 at the RAI, the AVIXATM Higher Education AV Conference will highlight a range of different perspectives on how to best enhance the learning and teaching experience through effective use of AV technologies. This conference is produced in partnership with European University Information Systems (EUNIS) and Standing Conference for Heads of Media Services (SCHOMS).

This year’s theme highlights the way in which effective application of AV technology can impact the experiences of many different people. Topics to be covered include Interrogating the Holographic Academic: A Speculative Design Workshop for Telepresent Future Learning, Interactive TU Delft Education Spaces Configurator. The benefits for students, teachers, people with disabilities and remote learners may be significantly different but AV can have a very powerful impact for all these groups and many others.
