VociNet Instructors Network Conference coming up

Yesterday I received the announcement of the VOCINET Instructors Network Conference, which will be held in tandem with the 8th EUROPRIX Multimedia Top Talent Award Festival in Vienna between March 3-5, 2006. The conference is intended for instructors, trainers, tutors and professors in multimedia from 20 European countries to come to Vienna to share their experience in producing content with their students for different platforms such as the web, DVDs and CD-Roms, mobile phones, installations etc.

The theme will be Teaching for contents on different platforms. The workshop is organized as a part of VocINet - Vocational Training and Network for European Instructors in Interactive Audio-Visual Media. It is the third Workshop after events in Salzburg and Tampere.The conference is specially designed for instructors in the field of new media, the two and half day intensive workshop will feature theoretical lectures as well as group work and practical case analysis sessions, all held by international experts and authors of selected papers that were sent in after a call for papers. Best-practice examples of successful multimedia instruction, training programs and interesting tools will be presented, analysed and discussed. An essential part is however to develop curricula for teaching.

At the same time as the conference the Europrix Top Talent Festival takes place. It is an event sponsored by the Austrian ministry of Economic Affairs and supported by companies such as ATI. It is the summit of a competition for students and young professionals. The nominees are invited to come to Vienna to present their projects to each other and listen to some gurus like Paul Hoffert. On the Saturday night there is the Europrix TTA Gala, where the prices are awarded. For some of the winners it means easier access to venture capital.
