Chilling with the chums in Chile

24 Jul

Today is my big day on our trip to Chile and I will be addressing the staff of the Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile on global perspectives in higher education. The slides to be used are here.   Chile Keynote (435 downloads) 700 people have registered so far and yesterday’s interview with the local paper El Mercurio involved an extended photo call. I could get used to this kind of life!
Phil’s workshop on ‘Making learning happen’ on Wednesday was very well received indeed. This is a university that takes learning and teaching very seriously as shown by the fact that they are the first university in Chile to require new teaching staff to take a learning and teaching programme so no wonder they loved Phil’s take on the HE world!

Further presentations and workshops on assessment follow on Monday and Tuesday before our return home on Wednesday.
