As the pandemic is set to continue into the next academic year, the expected ‘stop-go’ approach to lockdown will require creativity and flexibility to ensure that students can access the experiential learning they need, expect and deserve. This creates new tensions - on the one hand how do we find and use rigorous evidence to inform our practice, whilst avoiding the debunked theories that still resonate in the sector? On the other hand, how do we mitigate against risks when we use new and creative approaches to teaching?
This Innovation in Teaching Practice workshop will provide participants with a practical approach to scholarship of teaching and learning (SOTL) and pedagogic research enabling them to effectively evaluate the work of others as well as develop their own practice in designing, implementing and evaluating innovative teaching practices. The workshop will also support participants in identifying how SOTL can be used in SF/PF applications and career progression.
Who should attend?
This series of workshops is designed to support those involved directly in teaching and those who support teaching and learning activity within their institutions and will be of interest across a range of career levels. The workshops will focus on different areas of practice and seek to develop your skills in this area through the use of practical tools and tips. The format of the day will provide a forum for learning, sharing practice and overcoming barriers to excellent teaching and are particularly relevant for those working towards a Senior Fellowship application.
