How can theory and practice be combined in new media teaching? What is the right balance between academic learning & "hands-on" experience? Speakers Include: Dr. Richard Barbrook, HRC, Westminster; Laura Jordan, Lateral & HRC; Tom Roope, Tomato; Stephen Whaley, New Media Knowledge; Jane Austin, Recollective; and others.
