Here are the main slides from the four workshops I led on ‘Optimising Assessment and Feedback’. I’ve transcribed the ‘if only…’ postits so you can see where we started from. Thanks for being great groups to work with. I look forward to returning to Preston next week.  Preston-2016-11-w3.pptx (39 downloads)

Lecture Capture versus Lecture Napture?

Here’s a first draft of my little opinion piece on this. Many thanks to those who Tweeted comments this morning – some of which I’ve included verbatim. More feedback really appreciated please. Lecture-Capture-w.docx (118 downloads)
Since posting this, I am really grateful to several  people for detailed comments on how lecture capture can be used well by students, including Matt Cornock at the University of York who draws attention to research he is doing there with students,
please see https://elearningyork.wordpress.com/2015/11/13/research-update-lecture-capture-at-york/ which is causing me to adjust my own take on the topic, and see the benefits which can be achieved by lecture capture.

Helping students develop resilience?

I was pleased to see David Matthews’ piece in this week’s Higher about ‘Character Education’ and the work of Carol Dweck. link here: http://tinyurl.com/zree7tg

Way back when I worked at Leeds Met (now Leeds Beckett University) as part of work to help students to develop resilience I helped some students prepare a glossy little booklet using resilience case studies which you can download from the following link: http://www.leedsbeckett.ac.uk/publications/files/091124-36595_Book_of_Resilience_LoRes.pdf

At that time I also wrote a study skills guide for new students, which can be accessed from this link: leedsbeckett.ac.uk/…/100201_36648_LearnWithLeedsMet2_WEB.pdf

Swansea University: 13th-14th April

Here are the main slides I used in my two full-day workshops at Swansea University – one on each campus. As well as working with the core material on both days, I followed up matters arising separately in each workshop, so the slides here contain most of the things we touched on collectively. For the ‘statements’ exercise, please use the ‘search’ function of this website. For more detail about the ‘ripples’ model of learning, please see the post below this one.  Swansea-2016-ww.pptx (87 downloads)
