Using television to reach and teach more people - Dublin, 24 September

Wednesday 24 September, from 10 am to 12 noon.
The Irish Film Institute, Eustace Street, Dublin 2.
As part of National Adult Literacy Awareness Week the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (BAI), the National Adult Literacy Agency (NALA) and the Irish Film Institute (IFI) will present a seminar entitled: Education through television: learning from the story of adult literacy.
The aim of this seminar is to show organisations with an educational remit how they can exploit the medium of television to both educate and inform people, or to raise awareness of an issue.
The seminar will showcase some of the educational TV programming produced by NALA and the BAI over the last few years, hear the experience of programme producers and participants and explore new opportunities for collaboration.
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.
This event is free.
