Advance HE Teaching & Learning Conference 2018: Spinning Seminars: A new spin on structuring and assessing student-led learning spaces

This session introduces a simple yet dynamic way to create student-led participatory seminars incorporating innovative forms of assessment. ‘Spinning Seminars’ is a strategy piloted by the session facilitator at the University of East Anglia but initially inspired by rotational leadership structures he observed during PhD fieldwork with an HE study-abroad programme in Bolivia – operated by a US-based organisation in partnership with selected US universities. Spinning Seminars involves dividing students into rotating sub-groups with specific roles to play in collaboratively facilitating seminars. This enables the development and assessment of multiple skills helping students become independent self-directed partners in the learning process.
