• Education through television – learing from the story of adult literacy

    Posted on September 17, 2014 by in News Updates

    As part of National Adult Literacy Awareness Week 2014, a seminar entitled, Education through television: learning from the story of adult literacy, is being organised by The National Literacy Agency.

    This seminar will show organisations with an educational remit how they can exploit the medium of television to both inform people and or raise awareness of an issue.

    The seminar will be of particular interest to organisations such as education providers, state agencies and charities, who want to educate or increase awareness of an issue.

    It will also be an opportunity for TV producers and companies to learn more about educational TV programming in Ireland, meet these organisations and learn how the BAI funds these types of initiatives.

    The seminar will showcase some of the educational TV programming produced by NALA and the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland over the last few years, hear the experience of programme producers and participants and explore new opportunities for collaboration.

    Speakers include:

    • Professor Kathy Hall, Professor of Education, UCC
    • Rónán O’ Muirthile, series producer Animo
    • Jamie D’Alton, series producer and joint managing director, Motive TV
    • Michael Power, former literacy student and TV participant

    10.30 am, Wednesday 24 September.
