Innovative learning and teaching
Learning and teaching methods are changing rapidly. Students (for students, read all of us) are learning in innovative ways, in unexpected places, with technology that opens up the possibility of new connections – with experts, with like-minded communities and with up-to-the-second content.
As they always have, tutors are exploring innovative ways of teaching, seeking out content to re-use and new methods to stimulate real engagement (while also handling the demands of the day job).
I’ve recently started doing a piece of work with a university that is looking to move one of its courses to a more flexible distance delivery format, reaching out to international students and people seeking professional development in the workplace. It’s a fascinating exercise, a practical development project and sits neatly alongside my coaching work.
