GSoE staff to present at Inaugural Learning and Teaching Conference

11 May 2017

We are pleased to announce that 6 GSoE members of staff will be presenting at the 'The Inaugural Learning and Teaching Conference for the Faculty of Social Sciences and Law', which is taking place on the 27th June 2017, at the Graduate School of Education.

The broad theme, ‘Back to the Future: Drawing from experience to inspire innovation’ recognises that good practice and innovation in the field of learning and teaching results from reflection on our and others’ experiences, whether positive or negative. The aim of the conference is to promote good practice and inspire learning and teaching development. The intention is to encourage a sense of criticality and to learn from one another through the promulgation of ideas, tips and techniques.

Our staff will be presenting the following seminars:

  • Lorna Smith – 'Using classroom technology to facilitate the development of classroom communities'
  • Dr Jocelyn Wishart – 'Using Socrative & students own mobile devices for formative assessment'
  • Dr Janet Orchard - ‘Should co-construction pedagogy in higher education be prescribed?’
  • Dr Neil Ingram – 'Transforming pedagogy with Microsoft OneNote’
  • Helen Knowler – ‘Using Lesson Study as a research engaged model for teaching development in HE contexts’
  • Dr Jo Rose – ‘Motivation, Exploration, and Enculturation: Reflections on the doctoral journey and the role of the supervisor’
