“Trial and Error: media education in a changing media world.”
Fontys University of Applied Sciences, School of Journalism
May 18/19 2017
Tilburg, The Netherlands
At the Trial & Error conference, scholars and educators in the field of media discuss how to prepare students for an increasingly complex media field. Media educators have to switch from telling ‘how the world is’, to training ‘how to relate to a constantly changing world’. Not only do they need to keep up with ongoing innovation, they need to contribute to innovation as well as foster professional legitimacy in a converging media field. Just as innovation, so is media education in the 21st century a process of trial and error. At this conference about thirty scholars present their insights, ranging from media pedagogical theory and research results about students’ perceptions to best practices in media courses, building mediaclusters between media education and media industry and hands-on training workshops. The two conference days will start with inspiring keynote lectures from professor Max Louwerse (Tilburg University) and professor Mark Deuze (University of Amsterdam).
The conference venue is the post industrial setting of the ‘Spoorzone’, the railway area in the center of Tilburg.
