Next #TLCwebinar 24 Feburary 2015 with Dr David Smith from SHU “Bringing Experiential Learning into the Lecture Theatre”

Teaching and Learning Conversations (TLC)

Dear colleagues,

Dr David Smith (@dave_thesmith from Sheffield Hallam University will lead an exciting webinar on Tuesday the 24th of February, 12-1pm GMT* during which we will discuss “Bringing Experiential Learning into the Lecture Theatre”

Description: Within the teaching space conceptual descriptions are usually either vocal or presented using 2 dimensional slides and video. However, a deeper understanding can often be obtained by handing objects. These objects can be used to prompt conversations or to gain a deeper understanding of function. During this session we will bridge the virtual and physical dimensions of the webinar. Be ready to interact and bring along an object that typifies the way you teach or the subject itself.

We hope you will be able to join us.

About Teaching & Learning Conversations

TLC is an exciting cross-institutional collaboration to provide open CPD opportunities for everybody teaching and/or supporting learning in Higher Education. TLC  brings together colleagues from different disciplines, institutions and countries. TLCs are also open to students in HE and we are very interested in including students’ contributions to the programme.

Together, we discuss and debate a variety of current teaching and learning topics in a series of webinars which provide a great opportunity to reflect on and share good practice and to find out what is happening beyond your own institution the more global HE landscape.

All webinars are open to the wider community to join.
