Presented by ATOM QLD and Essential Screen Skills and hosted at Bond University (Gold Coast)
It has been 10 years since ATOM Queensland has hosted the Australian Teachers of Media National Conference. We are excited to see our Queensland colleagues and proud to welcome back our interstate colleagues to the Sunshine State. Since the 2016 Screen Futures symposium ATOM has grown from ATOM Vic, ATOM QLD and ATOM WA to now include ATOM SA and ATOM NT. Screen Horizons is set to be a celebration of the excellence in Screen and Media education and industry practices that has been delivered nationally.
Screen Horizons encourages delegates to think critically and with anticipation about the issues, skills, qualities on the Horizon of Screen and Media education and industry in Australia, and globally. Importantly, ATOM Qld will curate a conference that will provide delegates with tangible takeaways that can be implemented in practice.
Delegates will include primary, secondary, and tertiary Screen and Media educators, generalist teachers, pre-service teachers, industry practitioners and academics.
We are looking for workshops and presentations aligned to the following topics:
*Teaching Media Arts key concepts – Media Technologies, Representations, Audiences, Institutions, Media Languages and Media Relationships.
*Media Arts practices across cultures and diverse perspectives
*First Nations perspectives in Media
*Teaching Media Literacy
*Media Arts in Primary School/Junior Secondary
*Screen and Media Pedagogy
*Screen and Media technical skills
*Screen and Media story craft skills (generating ideas, scriptwriting, storyboarding, developing a bible, developing a pitch deck etc)
*Screen and Media distribution (copyright, film festivals, screen funding, screen distribution etc)
*Inclusive practices in Media Education
*Mobile filmmaking/Short form Storytelling
*Emerging technologies and participatory culture
*Media industry pathways and futures
*Arts education advocacy and research
Workshops will need to include activities for delegates to complete during the presentation and link to the conference theme.
