Media training for professors and reasearchers (in Finnish)

Mediavalmennusta professoreille ja tutkijoille kevään aikana

Media odottaa Aallon asiantuntijoiden ja professorien kertovan oman alansa tuloksista julkisesti. Toimittajat myös pyytävät päivittäin asiantuntijoiltamme taustatietoja ja kommentteja ajankohtaisiin asioihin.

Sosiaalisen median kautta tieto leviää sekunneissa koko maailmalle – millaiset aiheet mediassa kiinnostavat ja miten omalle aiheelle saa näkyvyyttä?

Julkisuudessa ja mediassa oleminen vaatii omaa osaamistaan ja tiedon muokkaamista yleistajuiseen muotoon. Aalto-yliopisto tarjoaa mediavalmennusta professoreiden ja tutkijoiden viestintävalmiuksien tukemiseen. Mediavalmennus koostuu kolmesta osiosta, jotka voi suorittaa erillisinä tai käydä ne kaikki.

Eläköön arkistosi! -seminaari 1.10.2013 (in Finnish)

Invitation to Eläköön arkistosi! seminar on preservation of digital av-material. The seminari is held in Finnish.

ELÄKÖÖN ARKISTOSI! -SEMINAARI AV-MATERIAALIN SÄILYVYYDESTÄ, SAAVUTETTAVUUDESTA JA AVOIMUUDESTA

Miten varmistaa, että digitaalinen av-materiaali säilyy tulevaisuuteen?
Löytyykö tuotantoyhtiösi kovalevyiltä pääomaa vai hiljalleen katoava bittisotku?

AV-tuotantoprosessin muuttuminen digitaaliseksi 2000-luvulla on tuonut mukanaan uusia haasteita, joista yksi on av-tuotantoihin kuvatun materiaalin määrän nopea kasvu. Kuvausten aikana syntyy kymmeniä, jopa satoja tunteja materiaalia. Tästä vain pieni osa päätyy lopulliseen teokseen. Mitä kaikelle valmiiden teosten ulkopuolelle jäävälle raakamateriaalille tapahtuu?

Eläköön arkistosi! –seminaari päivittää tietosi digitaalisen pitkäaikaissäilytyksen toimivista käytännöistä sekä avaa tulevaisuuden visioita digitaalisen av-materiaalin säilytykseen ja uusiokäyttöön.

Aika: 1.10.2013 klo 9:00-16:30, yleisöä pyydetään saapumaan paikalle klo 8:30-9:00 tai klo 10:00 jälkeen.
Paikka: Ateneum-sali, Kaivokatu 2, Helsinki
