Roll up roll up! Learning Resources Staff Development Sessions

We hope all teaching staff can find time to undertake some CPD before the start of term, and we’ve devised a programme to help you to do so.

The Learning Resources Staff Development Sessions offer you some bite-sized training opportunities to inspire your teaching.

What have we got in store for you over the first weeks in September?

  • We’ve got Planet eStream coming to show all interested staff how to use the media streaming service…
  • We’ve got Mark Charters discussing how to extend learning with Audio feedback…
  • We’ve got Vivienne Vine demoing the new, much anticipated GSA Intranet…
  • We’ve got the Canvas showcase, featuring a host of your colleagues:
    • Johnny Roger – Student Films for Assessment, embedding and sharing
    • Vivienne Vine – New Student Welcome Gateway
    • Michael Dancer- Embedded Planet eStream photosets as slideshows in Canvas
    • Mark Charters – Online Elective and PG Cert
    • Louise Hopkins -Painting and Printmaking Community (Guest lecturers, audio recordings, planet eStream photosets)

Learning Technology staff will offer also Canvas Rollover workshops, Lecture Capture, and Virtual Classroom (Collaborate Ultra). 

Please email and let us know if you are planning to attend any sessions. The Canvas Showcase is drop-in. Everyone is welcome!

*Creative dialogue is a key feature of studio learning in the creative arts. But how can we capture and extend this dialogue to support our students in their creative learning? Audio feedback provides an innovative vehicle to do just that. This workshop session will introduce audio feedback in the contexts of creative dialogue and support you to consider and apply audio feedback within your teaching practice.
