A warm and open invitation to join the very first #creativeHE meetup in 2019/20 on the 14th of October!
#creativeHE is an open collaborative community for creative and innovative practitioners which exists online at https://www.facebook.com/login/?next=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fgroups%2FcreativeHE%2Fabout%2F through which a series of events, conversations and courses are offered by the Centre for Excellence in Learning and Teaching (now University Teaching Academy) at Manchester Metropolitan University in partnership with Creative Academic and facilitators from a range of institutions nationally and internationally.
We will continue connecting, collaborating, experimenting and learning together online this year with practitioners and their institutions and organisations in the NW of England and further afield.
This meetup will take place at Manchester Metropolitan University on the 14th of October, 12-2 pm in the brand new and already very popular GROW cafe in the Business School (ground floor, North Atrium at the back) on the All Saints campus (Oxford Road). The focus of this meetup is to welcome colleagues and students new to the community and discuss plans for this academic year. You will also have the opportunity to purchase lunch or a drink if you wish from the GROW cafe.
We are very much looking forward to seeing you there. TABLES HAVE BEEN RESERVED FOR US.
More info about the #creativeHE initiative:
It aims to support pedagogical rebels and free-thinking innovators in experimenting with, developing, sharing and getting support for novel learning and teaching ideas as well as initiate and disseminate research activity around these that have the power to transform the student and staff experience within and beyond institutional boundaries.
This community is open to anyone who would like to join, academic staff, students and the wider public. All who have an interest in creative and innovative approaches to teaching and helping others learn.
We meet physically on a monthly basis, each time at a different institution. During our meetups, we will have the opportunity to get to know each other, share and grow new ideas, take risks and support each other in our creative adventures, experiment and play, as well as test and develop pedagogical ideas and identify ways to take them forward.
We will continue using the #creativeHE online community space which now supports and connects a global community. Furthermore, this space will offer additional opportunities for professional development through online discussions, events and courses that are organised through #creativeHE, the Creative Academic and the wider academic community. The openly licensed #101creativeideas project will help us collect and share our ideas and the pedagogic innovators project (#pin) to engage in related research activities.
The institutional contact will coordinate the monthly gathering and a booking system will be in place through CELT at Manchester Metropolitan University. If you would like to become a #creativeHE champion in your institution, please get in touch with us.
We are really looking forward to seeing you again online and locally,
Chrissi on behalf of the #creativeHE team
