    "Beyond Theory: Educational best practice and the use of ICT
    for teaching and learning"

    11th April, 2003
    Oxford Union Debating Chamber
    Oxford, UK

    Organised by Oxford University's Learning Technologies Group

    Sponsored by the JISC Committee for Learning and Teaching

    Target audience: Schools, FE, HE, and lifelong learning

    This event will discuss, at a high level, the development of C&IT material
    for use in teaching. In particular has pedagogical theory/best practice
    fed into this in the past, and if not, should we be trying to remedy the
    situation for the future? Are commercial VLEs the answer to our prayers or
    are we being pushed into a corner against our better judgement as teachers
    and designers?

    These questions and many more will be discussed, debated, and maybe even
    answered in the one-day colloquium "Beyond Theory: Educational best
    practice and the use of ICT for teaching and learning". For the last eight
    years Oxford University has organised a series of successful events which
    have discussed the place of technology in the spheres of learning,
    culture, and society and 'Beyond Theory' continues this.

    Speakers this year *include*:

    Professor Oleg Liber (Bolton)
    Vijay Kumar (MIT)
    Dr. Gilly Salmon (Open University Business School)
    Dr. Andrew Ravenscroft (UNL)
    Professor Angela McFarlane (Bristol)
    Professor David Unwin (UK eUniversities Worldwide)
    Bill Olivier (CETIS)
    Tom Franklin (TechLearn Centre)
    Dr Andy Syson (Coventry)
    Prof. Andrew Booth (Leeds)

    The event will also include a lengthy debate on the motion:

    "This house believes that commercial Virtual Learning Environments (LMS)
    provide sufficient facilities for the teaching and learning needs of
    Higher and Further Education"

    >March, Berlin]

    The organizing committee is very pleased to announce the 3rd Open
    Archives Forum Workshop, which will be held in Berlin on 27-29th March,
    2003. Registration is opened on the Open Archives Forum website

    The aim of the Berlin workshop is to explore which specific requirements
    and demands ought to be carefully weighed and considered before a digital
    media archive is made available via the Internet. Within this workshop we
    will discuss different approaches to network media repositories, libraries,
    archives and other information resources using the Open Archives Initiative
    technical framework for metadata harvesting.
    The workshop will consist of both presentations given by invited speakers
    and small group breakout sessions where the participants can discuss key
    issues, such as:
    * Metadata for multimedia-objects
    * Demands for an Application profile for media archives
    * University services in this field
    * User needs/Usage conditions versus technical, legal, access issues
    * Cross searching distributed Internet information resources
    * Collaboration among different cultural heritage institutions
    /Multi-Institutional ventures

    A tutorial on the implementation of OAI-PMH will be held the day before
    the workshop (on March 27th) for those who are not familiar with this
    protocol. One of the workshop speakers will be Herbert van de Sompel
    (Cornell University) representing the Open Archives Initiative (OAI) with
    an update of OAI activities.

    Call for Papers, Posters, Tutorials, Panels and Exhibits

    The annual ISMIR Conference is the first established international
    forum for those involved in work on accessing digital musical
    materials. It reflects the tremendous growth of music-related data
    available either locally or remotely through networks and the
    consequent need to search this content and retrieve music and musical
    information efficiently and effectively.

    This area presents vast challenges for those who need to organize and
    structure musical data, provide tools to search and retrieve, and use
    these tools efficiently. Music representation needs to be multi-
    dimensional and time-dependent; audio data is voluminous, requiring
    particular care in storage and transmission while preserving quality;
    the need for descriptive information about what is musically
    significant addresses a large spectrum of internal and external
    characteristics, from acoustic to musicological and cultural features;
    intellectual property rights issues (about what can be made available
    to whom and how) are complex, involve a variety of individuals and
    organizations, and vary from country to country.

    All of these concerns are of interest to education, academia,
    entertainment and industry. This conference thus aims at providing a
    place for the exchange of news, issues and results, by bringing
    together researchers and developers, educators and librarians,
    students and professional users, working in fields that contribute
    significantly to this multidisciplinary domain, to present original
    theoretical or practical work in peer-reviewed contributions (papers,
    posters). It will also serve as a discussion forum (panels), provide
    introductory and in-depth information in specific domains (tutorials),
    and show current products (exhibits).

    Detailed information about the conference and its organization is
    available on its Web site (http://ismir2003.ismir.net/).
