2020 ASPERA Conference Zoom sessions

On Friday 19 June 2020 we will run a series of 1 hour Zoom sessions in place of the, now postponed, 3-day face-to-face conference. The sessions will focus on areas of key interest to the ASPERA community, notably teaching media production within the context of COVID-19, supervising higher degree research students and ways that the Association can support screen production academics and the discipline. There will be opportunities to contribute to plans for the Association’s response in these areas and provide feedback to the Executive committee about priorities.

The program will run as follows:

9.30am – Teaching Media Production with Isolation
