AV in shared teaching spaces

More than 60 attendees recently enjoyed a conference on AV in shared teaching spaces at Mansfield College. Organised by members of our Educational Media Services team, the event was of benefit to all those involved in managing AV in the University. With speakers from Oxford, Jisc and a number of US Ivy League universities, the conference was a great success with lively discussion and thoughtful analysis on sharing knowledge and experience.

All speakers and members of the audience made this a very productive event. The talks were recorded using the Replay lecture capture system and are available to view online.
