"This blog has been set up in association with Networks magazine to maintain a network of colleagues, and support teaching and learning, in art, design and media higher education in the UK. We welcome items that relate to teaching and learning in art, design or media higher education: the launch of a publication or sector network, the development of a special interest group, a call for participation, a forthcoming event, etc."
(Jenny Embleton, 2012)
"The first twelve issues of the Art Design Media Subject Centre's magazine Networks are available to download from this page.
Networks13 will see the launch of an exciting new format and issue 13 and subsequent issues will be produced in an online only format. Previously published three times a year, from Networks13 onwards we shall produce 4 issues a year - the first in this series is due for publication on this website in April 2011.
Networks contains a range of news items, feature articles on contemporary issues, project and event reports, student contributions and resource reviews which we think you will find informative and stimulating.
Hard copies of issues 02 to 12 are available free of charge to colleagues in the United Kingdom who are working in higher education in any of the art, design and media disciplines. If you would like a copy of one of the back issues please contact us, however earlier issues are in very short supply."

"It is accepted that Virtual Learning Environments have grown rapidly in the Web 2.0 world. Digital repositories have become essential to the delivery of accessible and sustainable teaching and learning materials. This ADM-OER pilot project constitutes the art, design and media subject strand of the more extensive Open Educational Resources Project being undertaken by JISC and the Higher Education Academy.
The benefits of shared resources are both incremental and durable providing support not merely to institutions and teaching staff but also to the wider subject community, students and prospective students, nationally and globally."
"ADM-HEA is the Higher Education Academy Subject Centre for Art, Design and Media. We were established in 2000 to support and enhance learning and teaching in higher education art, design, media theory and practice, the history of art and design and cultural studies subjects.
We work with people in further and higher education institutions, subject associations and professional bodies, to explore and identify opportunities to develop effective practices in learning and teaching in art, design and media."
