09.00 - 11.30  Workshop “Students as partners” (Linneausborg 5173.0055)

Ways of engaging students in higher education as partners in learning and teaching is arguably one of the most important issues facing higher education in the 21st Century. Partnership is essentially a process for engaging students. It is a way of doing things, rather than an outcome in itself. This workshop will explore four ways in which students may be engaged as partners through: a) Learning, teaching and assessment; b) Subject-based research and inquiry; c) Scholarship of teaching and learning; and d) Curriculum design and pedagogic advice and consultancy

12.30 - 13.15  Reception, coffee (Van Swinderenhuys)

13.15 - 15.45  Workshop “Active and inquiry based learning” (Van Swinderenhuys)

“It is not enough just to do, and neither is it enough just to think. Nor is it enough simply to do and think. Learning from experience must involve linking the doing and the thinking” (Graham Gibbs).

This interactive seminar / workshop explores with participants the meaning of the concept of active learning and discusses a range of ways in which it may be built into lectures, seminars, practicals, fieldwork and other teaching contexts. Emphasis is placed on inquiry-based learning examples.

15.45 - 16.45  Social event (Van Swinderenhuys)
