Lisa O’Neil – “Media in Education”, May 20, 2015

On Sept 17, 2014, the Centre for Instructional Development proudly presented the Learn @ Lunch Workshop “Researching Conditions That Embed Media in Education; Is It Really Just a ‘Matter of Time’?” by Lisa O’Neill.

In January of 2013 a case study was launched at BCIT that sought to identify essential conditions that embed media in higher education learner experiences. This educational media study gathered learner-directed study habits, utilized findings to redesign faculty-directed activities, and uncovered the value and impact of both approaches to frame five essential conditions to embed media in teaching and learning.

The first half of the workshop briefly situates the investigation within the current media and adoption literature (by providing an overview of media ecology and situated learning) and introduces attendees to 4 characters who are supported by media enhanced learner experiences. The second half of the workshop discusses how the case study identified conditions could be implemented within VCC courses/programs.
