learning in great places

This year we have transported a postgraduate module out of normal seminar rooms and into the Creativity Centre in University of Brighton.

Some strong feedback so far – and it looks like fun. Does physical space make a difference to learning? And what happens when we integrate virtual and physical space?


Events on Faculty e-learning programme

At Brighton Business School we are running a programme of internal and external speakers to address issues around blended and e-learning in HE and to encourage debate plus share ideas.

New date for the next external speaker: Keith Smyth from Edinburgh Napier University on Staff Development and e-learning – talking about his 3E model – which was a great session at last November’s ECEL conference – Now coming to Brighton 5-6.30pm Wednesday 5th May.

Next session will be internal – “Blend or replace” – we can debate the value of replacing face to face with online sessions, and options for blended learning with full time campus students. That’s facilitated by myself, Asher Rospigliosi and Marion Curdy on Wednesday 26th May at 5-6.30pm

Then an external speaker seminar : Catherine Owen from Strathclyde who project managed REAP (HEA project on e-assessment) will focus our thoughts on formative and summative assessment using online technologies, and getting students involved in assessment. Wednesday 30th June 3pm – 4.30pm.

Finally the programme is due to end with a research-focused symposium including external speakers/experts in the field on Friday September 17th, 10am-3.45pm at Brighton Business School
