Introduction to Media Regulation: An A Level Study Day
Thu 9 Nov 2017 10:30 – 15:30
NFT3, BFI Southbank
This event is intended for teachers and students only.
This day offers students the chance to develop theoretical perspectives and to learn more about the media industry regulators through a clip-based, interactive presentation covering film, television, print and advertising. The concept of media regulation is at times complex but fundamentally simple: regulation of the media seeks to protect vulnerable sections of society, particularly children and the younger generation, and to provide advice about suitability of material. We will also consider whether media regulation is needed, or indeed achievable in our digital age. The day is relevant for students of OCR G325, Eduqas MS4, AQA MEST1 and MEST3 and also offers students and teachers an opportunity to hear a guest speaker from one of the areas and join the critical debate, develop an opinion, and learn about historical and contemporary debates within an academic theoretical framework. A resource pack for teachers and students is available on the day.
