UAL’s Annual Learning and Teaching Day was this year held at CSM – a fascinating and very enjoyable day!
The link to the slides I used for my ‘Lightning Talk’ about how teaching and learning spaces and practice are being extended into ‘the digital’ is here: https://goo.gl/a5P9H0
I had the great pleasure this year of again attending and presenting at the welcoming and fascinating Solstice / CLT Conference at Edge Hill University – full details on the conference website.
As part of this I presented on two subjects:
- Exploring Online Teaching Spaces in an Art and Design Environment
- Digital Feedback in an Art and Design University
This was the first time that I had chosen the ‘Pecha Kucha’ format – where you use 20 slides which are each visible for 20 seconds – and change automatically. It is a format which forces you to really hone your content and only leave in what is necessary for your message – which I found strangely liberating.
The links to the slides I used are:
For the full ‘Pecha Kucha’ experience, click on the ‘PK’ link in the 2nd slide in each to access the start of the timed presentation – then click on the ‘play’ icon (bottom left) to start the slides rolling.
Interested in Digital Learning Spaces?
You can now listen to UAL academics talking about how they and their students are using digital spaces for reflective practice, research, collaboration, showcasing work and more – @ http://tel.myblog.arts.ac.uk
This is the start of an ongoing audio enquiry I am conducting into digital teaching and learning spaces within the art and design Higher Education context.
Cara Lee Roth and I have been invited to deliver another ‘Evaluating Student Experience in Industry Projects’ workshop at the LCC Learning and Teaching Day – which will take place at LCC next week – 6 May 2015.
SEE and CLTAD have developed a teaching tool for evaluating students’ engagement in industry projects. This tool can help course teams to evaluate the impact of industry projects, enhance enterprise and employability and also inform curriculum design and learning and teaching strategies on how to measure student experience.

I’m looking forward to taking part in UAL’s Learning and Teaching Day at LCC on 14th January 2015. This year not just attending, enjoying and being inspired by the sessions on the day, I will also be co-presenting a session with Cara Lee Roth – Evaluating Student Experience in Industry Projects.
I (and a few other people ;-)) enjoyed Wikimania 2014 – which took place in London from August 8th-10th. For more details have a look at the programme. Most of the presentations to do with education took place on Saturday and included my new UAL colleague Dave White (Head of Technology-Enhanced Learning) with a provocative and thought provoking presentation entitled ‘What’s left to teach now that Wikipedia has done everyone’s homework?’ Videos of key presentations from Saturday are available at Livestream (you will need a Livestream account to view but that is free/easy to set up). A truly inspiring presentation was given by Jack Andraka ‘Citizen Scientist’ who told of his ultimately successful mission to discover a straightforward, cheap and effective test for early pancreatic cancer thereby saving lives Continue reading
I enjoyed attending and presenting at Solstice 2014 at Edge Hill University in June. For further information about Solstice 2014 have a look at the conference website. This year I presented on online assessment feedback and the ‘Online Assessment Feedback Tool’ (OAT) which we have designed, implemented and continue to develop at University of the Arts London.
To see the slides and handouts from all Solstice presentations have a look at the presentation page; there is also a direct link to my presentation.
