Imperial College, London: Faculty of Medicine: Master’s Staff Conference: 23rd May

Here are the main slides I used at our session on ‘authentic assessment’ this afternoon.  Imperial-College-2018-w.pptx (89 downloads)
Note that as I explained, there’s a missing word or two from those published here – remember? Please note also I’ve thrown in two or three more slides I’d love to have discussed with you, had time allowed.
It was great to stay for the rest of the afternoon – not least to ponder the drawbacks of PowerPoint (when used badly!).

Newcastle College: 30th April 2018

How great to have the chance to run a full day in my own city – and with around 80 participants in the morning keynote session! You were a great group, and engaged wonderfully in all the tasks and exercises I set you. Thanks for lovely Tweets too. We addressed all sorts of things to do with assessment and feedback, and the main slides are here:  Newcastle-College-2018-w.pptx (127 downloads)
Here too is the Word version of the handout I made squeezing all the HEA info on Fellowships into one (densely populated!) page – best printed on A3. grid-2018-w.docx (120 downloads)
All sorts of other things can be downloaded from the slides if you click the links. Hope to return soon.

University of Nottingham: 19th April

It was a great pleasure to be at your Teaching and Learning conference today – you were a fantastic group thanks. I’ve put a link to the main slides I used here (including the ones you didn’t see, which are the rest of the story).  Nottingham-2018-w.pptx (109 downloads) I’m also putting a link to the Word version of the colourful slide you saw about HEA Fellowships.  grid-2018-w.docx (120 downloads)
The post-it answers included ‘if I had more time’ but I think you’ll now know that it’s not a matter of how much time one has, but what one does in it – often something else.

Myerscough College, 23rd March

Great being with you today and working on ‘Making Engagement Happen’. You were a lovely group to work with, many thanks. I hope you’ll agree we were all engaged all morning. Here are the main slides we used today:  Myerscough-2018-w.pptx (122 downloads) . No Tweets from you today, but I think this was because we couldn’t as the Wifi system didn’t allow it, and there was no phone signal?

Coventry University: 14th-15th March

Great to work with you over two days on reinventing feedback and feedforward for the 21st Century. There are so many strengths at Coventry University, (as the Radio 4 broadcast on Tuesday evening amply demonstrated) and I look forward to seeing how you pick up and run with some of the ideas from these workshops. I’m also for interest adding a Word document I made from the nicely provocative material on ‘Educational Research Myths’ I mentioned. The main slides I used in the two sessions are downloadable here (including some I didn’t use with you as time was tight), not necessarily in the order in which we worked with them.  Coventry-2018-w.pptx (133 downloads)   educational-myths.docx (152 downloads)

NTF 2018: Updated slides for aspirant National Teaching Fellows and supporters

There was a very successful webinar yesterday with 26 participants on NTF 2018, led by Peter Hartley, Helen May and Sally Brown, which replaced the planned session at Edinburgh Napier University, which had to be cancelled with the University closed due to adverse weather conditions.
Various issues cropped up both in the planning of, and during the webinar, which necessitated some clarification of the HEA position by Helen May, and Peter Hartley also provided a really useful mindmap, so this version of the slides is the the updated one, with three new slides inserted after Peter’s mindmap. We hope you find these useful.  ANTF-presentation-w3.pptx (138 downloads)
It is also planned to hold a second webinar on Tuesday 13th March, 10am-11am, subject to confirmation, so I will confirm this when I can.
