Here are the slides which Sally and I used in our joint session with you this afternoon. We are very pleased to be in Luxembourgh for the first time, and look forward to working with you again tomorrow. Joint keynote (7)
Here are the main slides from my morning workshop on 5th December. Making Learning Happen (16). Here also are the slides from the afternoon workshop. Developing Effective Curricula (7). I wish you all well in developing these ideas at Luxembourg, and hope to see you again before long. Thanks for making Sally and I so welcome throughout our visit.
Here are the main slides I used. Don’t let on about the four-letter word! You were a great group. Smarter Lectures (24) Do raid my website for other things which may be useful to you.
Here are the main slides – including the odd prayer. I had to miss out most of the pictures to keep the size down to my web limit. You were a terrific audience to work with, and I wish you well with your work. NCT Tutors Conference (171). (Note: the other number on your labels was in case I had more time left over – but I always try not to overrun).
Here are our main slides.Grantham (17) You were a smashing group to work with.
Here’s a booklet which I developed with colleagues when I worked at Leeds Met some time ago. Peer Observation (50)
This 2-page summary gives details of my background, interests and work, and of the keynotes and workshops I provide. 2014 Flier (21)
Here are the main slides I used in my session on inclusive assessment. Inclusive Assessment Strategies (93). Towards the end of the slides are some links to a range of other source materials on inclusive assessment – there is now a huge and valuable literature about this. Here also is the handout material I referred to in the session handout 1 (47).
Here are the slides for the session which Sally led on inclusive teaching. Inclusive teaching (48) These slides contain a considerable amount relating to inclusive assessment too. It was great being at DKIT once again, thanks for making us so very welcome.
Please see Sally’s website for her slides which accompanied the two sessions she led on International teaching. See www.sally-brown.net
Here are the main slides I used in my two workshops today. As I explained, there are some differences between what we did in the morning and the afternoon. Ideally, ask someone who was there at ‘the other’ session to talk you through those slides you didn’t see – they will learn by explaining. Enhancing Student Engagement (125). Both groups were great to work with, thanks.
This table is about ‘assessment agency’ and compares some factors to consider when thinking about who assesses (lecturer, external examiner, peer, group, self). I’ve adapted the following table from one included in my submission for the 3rd edition of ‘Making Learning Happen’ (now with the publisher). Any suggested improvements gratefully received. Who assesses? (78)
Here are the main slides I used in our morning workshop on 10th October on ‘Designing good assessment questions’ (prefaced by the slides on the Curriculum Enrichment Project) Good assessment questions (66). The slides are not always in the same order as we used them of course. As always, of course, the slides are just ‘the slides’. In many ways, these are the least important aspect of these sessions. It’s what we did, said, argued about and shared that are the most important aspects. Students who miss a lecture but then get the slides are never able to benefit as much as those who were there.
Here are the slides used in the afternoon workshop on 10th October on ‘Involving Students in their own assessment’ involving students (48), and the ‘Assessment Agency Table’ as a word document Assessment agency table (25). I would love to have had time to do a bit more on peer assessment, but the double-booking intervened. I will offer a further workshop entirely on peer assessment on a future visit.
Here are the slides I used in my session for Associate Lecturers Associate Lecturer slides (29). I hope this helps you to enjoy your work with students all the more.
This little exercise adapted from one of my books may help students identify hazards Student Hazards (73)
Here are the main slides we used in our day together Coventry University (65). Additionally, the ‘statements’ exercise and slides can be found on the ‘archived downloads’ page. I’ve put a few extra slides in, on self-assessment, which I would like to have talked about if we’d had more time. Thanks for joining in to everything today – you were a great group to work with. I’d love to come back and run a day on linking the factors underpinning learning to large-group lectures and to small-group teaching. And possibly to go much deeper into reliability, validity, transparency and authenticity of assessment – there’s lots about this on my website.
Here are the main slides I used with you on our day together Norland College (20). The slides and handout for the ‘Statements’ exercise are available in the ‘archive download’ page of this website. It was great working with you all, and I hope the things we did will make your teaching even more successful.
Here are the main slides I used in my two workshops at Lincoln University. If you weren’t at both, you might like to see the slides from the other one. Smarter Lectures (56), Smarter Feedback (53) Great to see Lincoln again and to work with you all.
You might like the ‘smarter lectern’ which I was kindly supplied with for the morning workshop – I’m sure it will take off.
Here are the main slides I used TL5022 (80). It’s a very big PowerPoint file, and contains full details of the assignment and its deadline. I removed the pictures and video links to keep the file size down. The ‘statements exercise’ and the ‘content-free test’ are elsewhere on my website (e.g. in the ‘archived downloads’ page). I look forward to receiving your assignments next month. You should find that quite a lot of the thinking needed for the assignment was done during the workshops.
As there was a replacement Bus Eireann vehicle back to Dublin, without wifi, and as I had to get another bus in the centre of Dublin to the airport, I arrived too late to put the slides up last night, but am now back home in Newcastle.
It was great being at GCU again. Here are the main slides I used in my keynote, workshop, and also a related handout giving some tips relating to all 21 statements in the NSS. Very well done for the progress you’ve made in increasing student satisfaction in the School. keynote (33), workshop (27), handout (36). (The note in the keynote was ‘E’)
A while ago, I wrote (with many Leeds Met Teacher Fellows) a booklet “Using Peer Observation to enhance teaching”, which is now freely available under Creative Commons Licensing. You can also download the pdf file here Using peer observation to enhance teaching (147). Although the case studies here relate to one particular university, they may well be of interest much more widely.
