In 2019  the Australian Screen Production Education & Research Association (ASPERA) Annual Conference used a new format.
The free two-day conference was structured around a series of cross-institutional and interdisciplinary participatory discussion panels and keynote addresses that discussed and aimed to move forward thinking and practice on current issues in screen production, broadcast and creative practice education and research.
Sessions focused on teaching and learning, research and industry engagement—or a combination of the above. One afternoon of the event was given over specifically to creative practice pedagogies for screen and broadcast.
