[Yasmin_announcements] Fwd: [LEF:101] LEF Aotearoa at ADA in Wellington New Zealand

Leonardo is pleased to announce a Leonardo Education Forum workshop:

Hi all,
For anyone heading our way in the next week we are having the first
LEF Aotearoa workshop at the the ADA (Aotearoa Digital Arts) Symposium
in Wellington.

Workshop at ADA digital-critical-matter, the 6th ADA symposium,
Victoria University, Wellington 26th June.
Leonardo Education Forum (LEF) Aotearoa, 2-5pm

This is a forum where issues in digital media practice as these impact
education are discussed. Following the setting up of an Aotearoa New
Zealand LEF at SCANZ in February, we have the opportunity to be
networked world wide with educators who are examining some of the same
issues. Drawing on the concerns of LEF we will address four focus
issues in the workshop:

1. The Role of Research in media art & science & technology
This topic is searching for a statement of the issues involved in
applied research across disciplines - easy or hard here, and how

2. The role of Curricula: Mapping the terrain
Mapping Histories of digital media practice and education in New
Zealand. What are the issues?

3. The role of Institutions: Institutional / Organizational Capacities
and Benchmarks
Do existing criteria for research in Aotearoa adequately meet the
demands of electronic media practice and processes?

4. Network-centric and Intercultural Learning Methods and Processes.
An opportunity to state the adequacy of academic institutions in
addressing fundamental issues of place, awareness and knowledge. What
is the contribution from Aotearoa to the international community on
this subject?

In the workshop we will make a start at addressing these issues, share
information, resources and ideas, and the future direction we take
will be determined by those who participate. This workshop is open to
anyone working within media arts education in Aotearoa; whether in
studio, theory or workshop environments. For further information visit
the symposium website, or contact the workshop chairs:
