Gearing up for great teaching in Edinburgh, and going for it in Galashiels

7 Oct

After a marvelously relaxing little holiday last week in Cornwall, where Pauline Kneale as expert friend and chauffeur helped us learn more about gardens, seabirds, coastal geography and many other things, this week Phil and I are working in Edinburgh, contributing to the Learning and Teaching Conference at Heriot Watt University. We will be going live across the campuses in the UK, Dubai and Malaysia for our joint keynote on ‘Bringing your Teaching to life: practical tips to inspire learning’ and Phil will be taking questions from colleagues as part of the open door events, while I speed off in a fast car down to Galashiels to lead a session with Textile and other Arts colleagues at that campus.

Our joint slides are here: Heriot-Watt-Keynote-on-bringing-your-teaching-to-life-f.pptx (38 downloads) and my slides on assessment are here: Assessment-and-feedback-masterclass-Galashiels-w.pptx (40 downloads)

Next week, we are looking forward enormously to helping the new cohort of National Teaching Fellows to celebrate their fabulous achievement in Manchester.
