> IFLA-Section on Audiovisual and Multimedia and
> Section on Education and Training
> Berlin Conference Open Forums
> The International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) will be meeting in Berlin, Germany, August 1st - 9th, 2003. As part of the conference, the Sections on Audiovisual and Multimedia and Education and Training are planning coordinated Open Forums entitled:
> "Audiovisual and Multimedia as part of the Curricula in Library Schools and Continuing Education - Visions and Realities."
> The two sections invite proposals on the diversity of study programmes and contents, learning labs, examination contents, and infrastructure to gain competencies in audiovisual and multimedia applications for libraries. Proposals are also invited that examine how audiovisual and multimedia are included in the content of curricula in library education and training programs to educate current and future librarians in the methods and techniques of developing and utilizing audiovisual and multimedia in their professional activities in libraries. We plan to request that IFLA Headquarters schedule our coordinated open forums sequentially.
> Included in the scope of interest is the use of audiovisual and multimedia as teaching tools in schools of library and information studies as well as courses involving training in the use of audiovisual and multimedia in the library. Curricular issues related to teaching bibliographic control (description, access modalities etc.) of audiovisual and multimedia materials may also be considered within scope.
