Upcoming courses

UCL Arena: Design your CPD and short course:

A hands-on introduction to the CPD and short courses toolkit

CALT/ELE Workshop Series

Vicki Dale, Ros Duhs, Clive Young

Thursday 1st May, 1pm to 2.30pm

Arena Room, Ground Floor, 1-19 Torrington Place

A series of four linked lunchtime workshops (with sandwiches and coffee) will introduce participants to the new CPD and Short Courses Toolkit.

Early in the course, participants will be required to think about their course, and introduce it online to other course participants. Building on this initial course outline, each workshop will include a short presentation followed by an activity using a component of the toolkit. Peer learning and feedback will be a strong element of the workshops.

In addition to the face to face workshops, participants will be required to engage in accompanying online activities in their own time (~2 hours per week). The work will culminate in a showcase event on 27th March by which time participants will have completed a Programme Institution Questionnaire in readiness for developing a CPD or short course.

When you register for this you will register for all four workshops

UCL Arena: Exploring Students’ Existing Knowledge – insights from the EEK project

15th April 2014 from 4pm- 5pm

Vicki Dale, Clive Young, Ros Duhs

In this UCL Arena workshop, the presenters will showcase the Exploring Existing Knowledge (EEK) project, and highlight key findings from an evaluation of participating teachers’ experiences. This project was funded through the School of Medical and Life Sciences (SLMS) innovations grant stream. It supported the development of online diagnostic tests to allow new Masters students to diagnose their varied strengths and weaknesses in subject areas and essential study skills. Participants of this workshop will be encouraged to consider the learning needs of their own students and what strategies and resources might be developed to prepare them for university, especially at postgraduate level. This will include considering the balance of centrally coordinated versus discipline-specific learning development opportunities.
