University of the Future – Mediated, Pixelated, Hybrid or Virtual?

Leuven, Belgium   |   2–3 June 2022

Media & Learning Association’s annual conference is back in Leuven, Belgium on 2-3 June 2022 and we look forward to meeting you there!

Our theme for this year takes into account the extent to which events over the past 2 years have accelerated a process that had already begun – to re-think the structure, purpose and operation of universities and all higher education institutions to better fit the future.

Media & Learning 22 will be loaded with opportunities to share experience, discuss challenges and debate solutions as well to catch up with old friends and colleagues and meet new people.

This conference is organised jointly with KU Leuven and will take place in the award winning Groep T Campus, in the heart of Leuven.

Instructional Video: Two Truths and a Lie

The use of media in learning design is rapidly expanding as instructors and learners of all ages increase exposure to and confidence with the tools necessary to produce media. In this session we will explore findings around the use of video for educational purposes. Perhaps you will find that a truth you thought you knew is actually a myth. Or perhaps your hunches will be confirmed. Does video enhance achievement? Does video increase satisfaction among learners? Are there ideal types of video? What do we know about educational video, and what do we still need to learn?

Close encounters in third space - Leadership and organisational dynamics for advancing Digital Education

Join me on this journey into third space, where we’ll be looking at the complex interplay between leadership, academic and professional roles as universities strive to improve the way media and technology are used to support learning and teaching. As third space professionals working at the intersection of pedagogy and technology, what are the spaces we occupy, the knowledges we create, the relationships we build and nurture, the legitimacies we hold? How can leadership support this work, ensure the recognition of this very special skillset, and foster the development of future digital education leaders?

Rethinking learning spaces in an uncertain world: Student and teacher experiences with hybrid teaching and learning at KU Leuven

The global pandemic forced many of us to rethink education to fight Covid-19 and apply social distancing during lectures. Luckily, we could rely on earlier research into distance education in general, and more specifically, into synchronous hybrid learning. During synchronous hybrid learning both on-site and remote students are connected and taught synchronously in what is called at KU Leuven the “hybrid classroom” or “hybrid lecture hall”.

In order to further substantiate this potential ‘new normal’, research is needed to investigate the influencing factors of engagement and learning in these new environments from a student and teacher perspective. In her presentation Annelies Raes will reveal the student and teacher experiences with different hybrid learning designs, which are explored and analysed through the lens of the Activity-Centred Analysis and Design (ACAD) framework. Next to this more qualitative approach, she will also present quantitative results on the effect of the level of presence (on-site versus remote, with or without interaction) on cognitive and affective outcomes. In line with the ACAD framework, the research found that successful learning and teaching activities are interrelated with set, epistemic, and social design decisions.
