Online webinar - Using technology to support reflection on individual learning journeys

Wednesday 30th August 2017

Wednesday 30th August 2017Wednesday 30th August 2017

Students from Canterbury Christ Church University will lead this webinar and use it to showcase how a particular assignment used PebblePad workbooks and assets to improve the educational experience. The webinar will highlight that it is not the technology per se that is important, but rather how the technology is used to improve pedagogy and teaching practice. Sarah Tutton, the lead student presenter, has just won the CCCU PGCE prize for creativity on the PGCE. This is the top student prize and is given to the student who has shown and demonstrated by publication the greatest creativity in their teaching practice. We are absolutely delighted to have Sarah presenting her work.

The annual Veterinary Education Symposium – VetEd – was established by a group of enthusiastic veterinary educators working in vet schools in the UK and Europe. The symposium takes place over two days during the summer. It rotates around the schools and aims to be an economical way for veterinary educators to share ideas and innovations for teaching undergraduate and postgraduate vets. This year's Vet Ed is being hosted at the University of Liverpool.

Online webinar - The IMPACT Project: Authentic Learning by Design

Tuesday 16th May 2017

Tuesday 16th May 2017Tuesday 16th May 2017

The IMPACT (Interdisciplinary, Meaningful/Mentorship, Practice , Applied, Collaborative/Community Transformative) Project is a community-engaged interdisciplinary authentic learning experience for first-year engineering students, undergraduate biology students, and graduate-level occupational therapy students. Together, the students, staff, and faculty from these three communities work with local community members to identify a problem area, collaboratively design devices, and ultimately delivering a useable solution to one or more users. This project has been ongoing since 2012.

The IMPACT Project is built around a freshmen engineering course on engineering practice and the profession. Using a new problem each year, the approximately 1000 engineering students are tasked with designing a device for the user(s). The 200–300 biology and occupational therapy students volunteer as design reviewers. At the end of the project, a public showcase and competition results in a final best design and prototype which is handed to the user(s).

Learning in the IMPACT Project is facilitated with the use of several pieces of digital technology, including electronic learning portfolios. This webinar will describe the design of the IMPACT Project and the strategies employed to organize the disparate groups and schedules, methods used to capture students work, and how student collaboration across multiple disciplines was achieved and facilitated by digital technology.
