  • CALT SLMS Course design and Redesign

    The aim of this session is to engage with approaches to course design which get the best out of students, demanding much more than the memorisation of content. We will study the design of active learning which requires students to use and apply their knowledge and practise challenging, complex skills like analysis, critique, and reasoning. Participants will work with their own courses. They will be invited to send examples of learning outcomes, learning activities, and assessment tasks to the session leader in advance so that the session will relate directly to relevant examples.

    1. Innovation in teaching, learning and assessment

    2. Global citizenship and employability

    3. Internationalisation of the curriculum

    4. E-learning

  • CALT SLMS Diversifying assessment - introduction: why and how?

    We are urged to use a range of approaches to assessing student learning (see ILTS para 51 p. 8) but why? This session outlines the rationale for using diverse ways of assessing student learning. Participants will study options for less traditional ways of assessing student learning and consider if they might be appropriate for their courses and students.

  • CALT SLMS Diversifying assessment: oral presentations of posters

    Oral presentations of Posters are a rich way of assessing students learning. It is worthwhile to use this type of assessment task, which requires profound engagement on the part of the student. Problem- or enquiry-based learning can be used as a basis for the creation of posters. During the session, we will be looking at how posters can promote higher order learning on the part of students and consider diverse ways of approaching poster preparation and presentation.

  • CALT SLMS Diversifying assessment: portfolios

    Portfolios contain collections of work for assessment. Students include a table of contents. They explain how the work they have selected for inclusion in the portfolio shows that they have achieved course intended learning outcomes. This is an enormously beneficial process as it heightens students awareness of their learning. During the session, we will be looking at how assessment portfolios can be used to build on a dialogic feedback system and how they can be managed in Moodle or through My Portfolio to minimise staff workloads.

  • CALT SLMS Diversifying assessment: self- and peer assessment

    Self- and peer assessment have the potential to raise students awareness of their learning. Students develop the ability to recognise and produce good work through studying and evaluating the work of their peers. Work which has already been peer assessed can be more quickly assessed by staff. During the session, we will be looking at how to manage self- and peer assessment and considering the advantages of these processes for student learning.

  • CALT SLMS E-LEARNING/DISTANCE LEARNING

    E-learning/distance learning: using Moodle to extend student learning This session will focus on the way e-learning using Moodle can help students to learn and adopt active, deep approaches to learning. The aim is not to develop the technological expertise of participants which has to be done hands-on (contact LTSS). A click and see approach will however be demonstrated and encouraged. A quick overview of research into e-learning in HE will be provided. Examples of good practice will be studied in relation to a range of learning outcomes which can be achieved through online/virtual communication.

  • CALT SLMS Employability

    The aim of this session is to focus on students' development of a range of skills which enhance their employability. We will discuss approaches to raising students' awareness of the competences which they gain during their degree studies. The UCL personal tutoring system is designed to support students in planning, developing and reviewing their skills. We will examine the concept of personal and professional development and look at the research which indicates that personal tutoring provides students with effective support to contribute to their employability. Participants in the session will be provided with resources which they can adapt and use with their students.

  • CALT SLMS FEEDBACK TO STUDENTS

    Students often feel that feedback on their work does not help them with areas they do not understand. The aim of this session is to enable academic staff to promote student engagement with feedback using a concept of feedback which ranges beyond the narrow definition of written comments on written work. Labour-saving strategies for providing feedback will be considered.

  • CALT SLMS Helping PhD students complete

    The process of writing a thesis and submitting on time can be a difficult one for some PhD students, unused to writing long documents Starting early and writing frequently throughout a PhD can help. One way of encouraging students to do this is through attendance at academic writing retreats. Writing retreats help students develop and explore their own writing strategies and provide peer support. Drawing on the research into academic writing retreats, the session covers how to set up a writing and looks at example programmes in the UK and worldwide. Participants will be asked to plan a writing retreat for their students.
