​Collaboration, co-creation and Christmas around the corner!

3 Dec

My series of workshops developed collaboratively with Kay Sambell and Brian Webster Henderson on ENhancing assessment and feedback workshops for all six Schools at Edinburgh Napier University continues this week, with the second workshop for the School of Arts and Creative Industries on Wednesday morning, two workshops for the School of Nursing, Midwifery and Social care on Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning, and workshops for the School of Applied Sciences on Thursday afternoon and Friday morning. The last of the series will be for the School of Computing on Wednesday 13th December. The slides for all of the workshops are provided here as open resources for use by anyone interested.  Edinburgh-Napier-SACI-6-December-.pptx (14 downloads)   Edinburgh-Napier-HSC-67-December-w.pptx (8 downloads)   Edinburgh-Napier-Applied-Science-78-December-w.pptx (7 downloads)   Edinburgh-NapierComputing-w.pptx (8 downloads)
We will also be offering a soft launch (with mince pies) of the ENhance assessment guides and activity briefings co-created by Kay, Phil Race and me at lunchtime on Thursday 7th at Sighthill campus, and these guides will shortly be available as resources available under a Creative Commons licence on the DLTE website at Edinburgh Napier.

My last working day of the year will be on Thursday 14 December at South Bank University where I will be the external for the last Achieve panel reviewing HEA Fellowship applications under their current  route, which has been highly successfully in enabling staff of the university to gain Fellowship in various categories.

After that, its festivities frolics and fun, including the North East Christmas Treat for National Teaching Fellows on Wednesday 20th December.

Phil and I don’t send nearly as many Christmas cards as we used to, instead supporting Crisis at Christmas, so I will use this post to wish you a really happy time between now and the new academic year in 2018, with a perfect mix for you of leisure, family time, productive work, writing and rest!
