Jonathan Shaw and Shaun Hides will be talking this week at Video Vortex #9, Lunenburg. They are presenting as part of the session entitled “Video and Open Source (M)OOCs“. Jonathan will be talking about the research he leads into open education with a particular focus on ideas of hybridity and exploratory practices within higher education. Shaun’s will present a case study on our recent JISC funded ‘Coventry Open Media Classes‘ project.
Video Vortex is an international conference series established in 2007 by Amsterdam based Institute for Network Cultures that addresses online video. For its 9th edition we ask how do new assemblages of video shift mediascapes and affect notions such as that of the user, citizen or spectator?
Video Vortex #9, Re:assemblies of Video, 29/02/13 – 02/03/13. is organized and hosted by the Moving Image Lab and Post-Media Lab of the Innovation Incubator at Leuphana University Lüneburg, Germany.
The Moving Image Lab researches and experimentally engages with the production, circulation and effects of internet-based moving image formats. It is the core of the Centre for Digital Cultures, which is currently being established at Leuphana University. The Post-Media Lab offers space for the development of collective medial contestations in the age of imploding mass-media. It is centred around a programme of visiting fellows and a series of publications and public events.
