Online Webinar: Student-Led, Individually-Created Courses (SLICCs): Enabling students to take ownership of their learning and assessments

Thursday 26th October 2017

Thursday 26th October 2017Thursday 26th October 2017

Simon Riley and Gavin McCabe from the University of Edinburgh will share their experience of running a university-wide initiative – Student-Led, Individually-Created Courses (SLICCs). The initiative provides a flexible, reflective-learning framework for experiential learning, where the SLICCs enable students to be co-creators, working across disciplinary boundaries, and defining their own learning outcomes.  Able to capitalise on their own interests, passions and co- and extra-curricular activities, students identify an academic theme in their learning experience, reflecting on that experience by curating an eportfolio evidencing their learning.  

The webinar will outline how this approach has been piloted successfully in a centrally-managed version for student activities in the summer and is now expanding into discipline-managed versions within degree programmes.

Online webinar - Hashtags, tweets, and status updates: Social media as a precursor to folio thinking

Tuesday 26th September 2017

Tuesday 26th September 2017Tuesday 26th September 2017

Students today are often deeply engaged in various forms of online communities through social media such as Facebook, Twitter, and Snapchat. While educators often see this as a distraction, social media can be a space where students can cultivate and refine their critical thinking, and can also become a site for civic engagement. Recognizing this space and extending it can be seen as the development of folio thinking, a reflective practice necessary for the creation of effective eportfolios. The presenters will talk about how students are already engaged in the process of critical thinking and integration using social media, and the webinar will share practices that have been effective in supporting students to make the connection between their personal and academic digital spaces.

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.

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.
