Careers and the Creative Classroom, Edge Hill

  1. Thu 06 Jul 17

    This one day interactive event is relevant for staff delivering employability presentations, workshops or module content who want to experiment with a more innovative approach to engage students.

    In the morning a speaker from Bradford University will address the following:

      •    Do your students prepare for class?

      •    Do they actively engage in learning?

      •    Can they apply course concepts to solve real-world problems?

      •    Are they developing skills for the workplace?

    TBL is a form of collaborative learning that uses a special sequence of individual work, group work and feedback to create a motivational framework in which students increasingly hold each other accountable for coming to class prepared and contributing to discussion.  It dramatically shifts the focus of classroom time away from content delivery by the teacher to the application of course content by student learning teams.  These teams regularly work together to solve challenging, authentic and real-world problems, select a solution, and justify that solution to their peers in other teams.

    TBL is designed to promote active, engaging and sustainable learning and develop transferable skills to enhance employability.

    In the afternoon an Edge Hill University speaker will talk about his ground breaking teaching which saw him nominated in 2016 for HEA Innovative Teacher Award.  Flip your classroom, QR Code treasure hunts and more will be the focus of our afternoon's activities and the speaker will discuss how his methods can be adapted according to the number of students, level and importantly our time allocation.

    To apply for a place please email a completed regional course booking form to Debby Murray at Edge Hill University Careers Centre: by Thursday 29th June.
