Invitation to METAL workshop on 27th May 2011

Are you interested in creating multimedia teaching resources to enhance your teaching?

Are you already doing so and want to learn from what others are doing and share your experiences?

The METAL (Media Enhanced Teaching and Learning) project is a University of Nottingham school led project that aims to build and support the growing community of staff involved in creating audio visual teaching material.

The first project workshop will take place on Friday 27th May 2011 from 10:30-16:00 in Room C15, Pope Building, University Park, Nottingham NG7 2RD. Lunch will be provided.

At this free workshop you’ll be able to find out what facilities and support are available in Nottingham, try out some of the hardware and software, find out what others are doing and talk about your experiences and any concerns you have.

Register here:

We look forward to meeting you!

    I am pleased to see lots of people signing up for the workshop on May 27th in spite of the exam season!
    We should have more details of the programme for you soon.
    As well as a variety of presentations and a free lunch, we will have “Take the floor”, which will give you a chance to tell us about or show us some of the things you have been doing with multimedia resources. We also expect to have a panel discussion (or similar) where we will discuss questions such as what we think the benefits are of what we are doing, who we are trying to help, and whether we should actually be doing it at all!
    Best wishes,
