With teaching excellence still a major focus of the HE sector, and increasing pressures across institutions to respond to policies such as the subject level TEF in England and challenges such as the mental wellbeing, online teaching and inclusivity our workshops provide practical guidance on improving your teaching practices working alongside peers from a range of institutions and disciplines. These workshops have been created to provide practical support in an interactive way to assist you with implementing policy and new innovative teaching practice developments at module, programme, departmental or faculty level. They will assist you in leading change and monitoring impact, as well as guiding you to recognise your contribution to both your teams and the wider institution.
During 2020-21 there will be a series of 6 one-day online workshops covering a range of topics pertinent to teaching and learning in HE.
A practical, hands-on, explorative and experimental workshop designed to explode the myth that creativity is the gift of rare individuals with special talents and to prove that everybody can be both creative in their teaching and offer creative opportunities to their students, even in today's climate where the virtual delivery of teaching and learning is becoming the norm.
Delegates will explore and immerse themselves in creative approaches through a range of diverse, playful and imaginative activities in a safe environment with colleagues from different institutions. Fostering openness, collaboration and freeing themselves to consider creative approaches in their own teaching. Throughout the day we will help you build your own ‘non standard’ selection box of creative inspiration.
By the end of the workshop delegates will have:
• discussed and experienced creative approaches in online learning and teaching across and within disciplines.
• reflected upon their own practice and opportunities for change and transformation.
• developed creative approaches in teaching to stimulate excitement in learning.
