Cork Institute of Technology: November 14th-16th

Sally and I are enjoying three days in Cork running workshops and meeting staff. My first workshop on ‘Making Learning Happen’ was for colleagues at Crawford College of Art, and the main slides are here. Crawford (600 downloads) , and my second workshop on ‘Smarter Assessment and Feedback’ at the main campus is here Smarter assessment and feedback (661 downloads)
On 17th November, I started with a breakfast workshop on ‘student engagement and retention’ for the Department of Hospitality and Tourism (though I didn’t see breakfast, but later in the day had a splendid lunch very well served in the Training Restaurant). Here are the main slides for that workshop Hospitality and Tourism (598 downloads) .  I then went across to the Faculty of Engineering and Science, and continued on the theme of ‘Student Retention’ Engineering and Science 1 (573 downloads) , and after lunch continued further with the theme of retention but this time in online learning contexts Engineering and Science: online (565 downloads) .  I really enjoyed working with both sets of participants, and the chats before and after the various events.
On the third day, numbers were too small to do the full advertised workshops, but I’m putting the full slides I would have used for two-hour workshops, for the benefit of the staff who attended the summary ones. Making Learning Happen (617 downloads) , Large Group Teaching (594 downloads) .
