I hope this email finds you well and already having a great start to 2020. For that past few years UBC Studios Okanagan has been hosting Digital Media in Education events which have included the DME 2017 Conference and the DME 2019 Symposium. This year we are pleased to be hosting DME 2020: Future Proof Conference and would like to extend an invitation to you!
The planning team have already secured some great speakers and are building an excellent framework for the many workshops and sessions being offered for this year’s event. We are excited to announce one of our keynote speakers is the dynamic and award-winning actress, stuntwoman, producer, and internet sensation, Cassandra Ebner. We are also looking forward to providing a wide range of sessions and activities especially designed to highlight the importance of “future proofing” digital media in education.
This year's core tracks are:
- Content Creation and Distribution
- Enhancing Teaching and Learning with Digital Media
- Exploring Education Through Emerging Media and Technologies
This year’s conference kick starts the evening of Wednesday April 29th with our DME 2020 Welcome Reception and Digital Media Showcase. This is an excellent opportunity to reconnect and make new connections while exploring the works and innovations of follow delegates. You may want to consider submitting one of your digital media projects for the showcase with the possibility of taking home the Digital Media 2020 Showcase Award.
Submissions for workshops and speaker sessions are now open. We have limited space if you would like to share your knowledge and expertise, so please submit yours early at DME Session Proposals. Conference Registration opens February 15th and admission is $150. If you register before March 10th you will receive a 30% discount, just email me for the promo code. The Holiday Inn Express Kelowna is also giving an excellent rate for delegates if you book before April 9th, and we are in the process of arranging shuttle service from the hotel to the UBCO Campus.
That’s it for now. We will keep you posted as more event news happens and we look forward to you joining us in April. If you have any questions or would like more information please don’t hesitate to contact me. For now, feel free to enjoy our DME Highlight Video!
