Internationalisation: scholarship and practice

19 Jun

What a glorious weekend! We worked with our pro bono group of friends  preparing to do PhDs by publication and it was all very productive despite the sweltering conditions. This is one of the endeavours that Phil and I really enjoy engaging with as we move from paid-for work to voluntary work and mentoring. There are always lots of laughs and lots of cake but also really in-depth discussions, and it’s fantastic to see people completing their PhDs successfully.

On Tuesday of this week I’ll be working at Keele University contributing to their learning and  teaching conference with a keynote on supporting international student success and then an afternoon workshop on making assessment and feedback more manageable and effective. The slides for both sessions are here:  Keele-Internat-June-2017-w.pptx (48 downloads)   effectiveefficient-assessment-Keele-w.pptx (47 downloads)

Next week I am looking forward immensely to catching up with old friends and meeting new colleagues at the Assessment for Higher Education conference in Manchester prior to flying on Friday to Leon in Spain where Phil and I will be contributing to a conference of Spanish educators around teaching,  learning and assessment.  Here we will be contributing to internationalisation in practice by learning from colleagues as well as presenting, particularly on developing capability for publishing about learning and teaching. My slides in English and Spanish will be available here in due course.
