FW: Free Teaching and Learning Conversation Webinar: Monday 6th March 2016 at 12:30-13:30 : Capturing learning: beyond the acquisition metaphor


Dear Colleagues,

Apologies for cross-posting.

The next in our series of Teaching and Learning Conversations (TLC) on Monday 6th March 2016 at 12:30-13:30 (60 minutes), is with Paul Orsmond, Senior lecturer in the School of Life Sciences and Education at Staffordshire University and Rachel Forsyth, Associate Head of CELT, Manchester Metropolitan, University .

Paul and Rachel’s TLC is titled “Capturing learning: beyond the acquisition metaphor”.  It this interactive webinar they will examine current models of assessment in UK Higher Education and argue that these only assess a tiny portion of all that students learn at university. This conversation hopes to more fully explore the learning that occurs in university through student identity development.


Full details of this TLC are available on the TLC website at:
