2018 On-Location Early-Bird Registration Deadline
BEA On-Location @ the University of Houston
As the premiere international academic media organization, driving insights, excellence in media production, and career advancement for educators, students, and professionals, we are proud to offer 2018 BEA On-Location, a “Super-Regional” conference at the University of Houston. On-Location provides professional development with a series of hands-on training sessions, and an opportunity to promote academic scholarship through research and creative presentations and competitions.
BEA continues to expand its research presence by sponsoring a Mini-Symposium at BEA On Location in Houston this coming October. The theme of the Mini-Symposium is media literacy, mirroring the topic of the national BEA Symposium in April 2019. Our goals for the Mini-Symposium include promoting the national Symposium and expanding research opportunities about media literacy at the regional level.
In addition to the paper and production competitions, this conference will include hands-on training sessions on research techniques and the latest software.

This year’s program features a Thursday Engaged Teaching & Learning Workshop produced by the Advancing Community Engagement and Service (ACES) Institute at the University of Houston and BEA’s Service Learning & Community Engagement Division and a special Friday luncheon and presentation called First Informers: Covering Hurricane Harvey.
