The Association for Visual Pedagogies (AVP) was established four years ago in response to increasing demand for aspects of visuality (with a particular though not exclusive emphasis on video) in teaching and learning – in its broadest sense. RMIT signed up to become an institutional member last year so this means that we are all members, with associated conference discounts.

I’m excited that in 2019 RMIT will host the AVP conference.

The 2019 conference theme – Ocular becomings in dangerous times: The politics of seeingpromises to bring an interdisciplinary mix of scholars and pedagogues together from across the globe. Please check out the conference website more information.

The conference is an opportunity for staff, HDR students and industry partners to present their thinking and practice, hear (and see) how others interpret this concept in and for their pedagogical work, engage in robust dialogues about the tyrannies and opportunities visuality offers, and of course network with a creative mix of like-minded people from across the world. AVP own the Video Journal of Education and Pedagogy with Brill publishers – and will be inviting submissions from presenters following the conference.

As an AVP member you do not have to pay the open access fee if your work is accepted for publication in this journal. This is a great opportunity to have your work seen and heard in the wider world

Importantly, the conference is also a way of profiling our School as a place where we are not only actively pursuing the latest technologies and pedagogical approaches to learning – we are keen to critically explore the challenges too!

Jayne and her team will provide us with more information at our first school meeting for the year.
