A media expert at the University of Lincolnshire & Humberside has been made northern regional chairman of an organisation which promotes the use of technology for learning.


Geoff Thompson, Media Production Centre Manager at the university’s Lincoln campus, was elected last week as chair of the northern region of the Society for Screen Based Learning.


The society, formerly called the Educational Television and Media Association, is re-launching itself this year.


“I’m delighted to have been elected chairman in this year when the former association is expanding and broadening its remit to embrace a wider range of learning technologies,” he said.


“I look forward to welcoming new members from sectors such as schools further education and industrial and commercial training agencies as well as new members who work in the broadest possible range of learning environments.”
