>Theory and Practice
>The two events will explore the relation between theory and practice in
>media teaching in higher education.    Practice in this context refers
>to teaching related to the production of media artefacts or performances,
>and not to educational practice more generally.       The events are
>designed to examine the tensions between the critical and vocational
>dimensions of
>media study.
>The first day will focus broadly on the problems that grow out of this
>tension between critical and vocational demands, offering a dissection
>of the current state of the field, and a historical perspective on how
>media education has developed.   The second day will focus on the road ahead,
>and on ways of managing the relation between theory and practice in the
>future. Both days will aim to include both overviews and case studies.
>  £10 per event or £15 for both
