Encouraging staff to fully exploit the multimedia lecture room

4 Awareness Raising

A general publicity campaign was launched through the College in order to raise the awareness of staff in general to the project and it's purpose. Using the College's monthly newsletter, introductory information under the banner 'Multimedia Magic', (see Figure 3) endeavoured to raise awareness among staff in anticipation of the commencement of hands-on sessions.

In addition, the topic of the use of multimedia was included in the programme for DELTON (Delivery of Learning and Teaching on the Network), a discussion group raising the profile of teaching and learning across the College (see Figure 4).

However, a further meeting of the project steering group on January 28th 1998, resulted in some rethinking of the direction of the project to take place.

Support had been offered for the project from several members of College Committees. However, it was decided that direct involvement with staff in respect of support and training might produce the best effect. Further meetings of the steering group would take place once a clear idea of the outcomes from the project had developed.
