Bartlett plans a range of learning initiatives
28 November 2012
Following the release of the Bartlett’s 2012 report on the student experience by Alexi Marmot, Vice-Dean of Teaching and Learning at the Bartlett, a new faculty-level Research Assistant has been employed to develop a range of learning initiatives.
Jane Robb, Research Assistant in Student Experience and Pedagogy, will be responsible for teaching and learning-related student activities across the Bartlett. Her job also entails writing reports on the Bartlett’s published student experience data, as well as organising other initiatives to improve pedagogical practice across the faculty.
To celebrate the launch of this set of projects, a new event called Bartlett Showoff will be held on 3 December with the aim of inspiring interest, excitement, understanding and humour across the multidisciplinary Bartlett schools. Held in a local Bloomsbury pub, several staff and student participants will perform six-minute presentations about their work to a Bartlett-derived audience, all compered by UCL Public Engagement’s Steve Cross.
The Bartlett is also holding a series of Learning Lunches in which faculty staff will have the opportunity to share best practice in teaching and learning. The first of these will be based on the theme ‘Assessment: Innovative Bartlett Practice’ and will take place on 3 December from 12-2pm at Wates House, Room G01.
A further two sessions, which will focus on the crits process in Architecture and the intercultural aspects of teaching and learning, have also been planned.
In order to showcase the wide range of student initiatives that will be rolling out across the Bartlett over the next academic year, Jane has set up a Bartlett Student Experience Blog. Bartlett students will be able to get involved in various activities via the blog as well as learn more about Jane and her work.
