In the busy atmosphere of Universities there is rarely time to reflect and discuss what’s working and what isn’t in teaching and learning and the student experience. There’s even less time to discuss and explore ideas for improved teaching and learning - to innovate - to design new ways of doing things.
This workshop invites all staff involved in teaching and learning to bring along their ideas, opportunities, and inspirations. And to discuss their practical application with their peers and a facilitator experienced in higher education and learning and development in the private sector.
There’s an opportunity to raise that idea you’ve had for a long time but haven’t done anything about, to find like minds who agree, to discuss the pros and cons and to develop a strategy for taking it forward with expert input. Straightforward ideas. Radical ideas. Ideas that will make a difference to Higher Education and the University.
Participants indicate pre-event to the workshop leader which ideas and topics they are interested in discussing. At the event, a mix of static and dynamic facilitation and other techniques will be used to deepen and explore ideas, and to decide how to take them forward.
If you wish to contact the course leader please do so via Ken Marsden, Deputy Director, CALT (firstname.lastname@example.org)
