Event description

Description

Following on from the Vice-Chancellor’s Distinguished Teaching Awards at University Day, Dr Sam Grogan, Pro Vice-Chancellor for Student Experience and Professor Neil Fowler, Dean of Students would like to invite you to attend the second in a series of Teaching & Learning Showcase events.

Following reflection on the excellent practice demonstrated in all the applications for the Vice-Chancellor’s Distinguished Teaching Awards (VCDTA) and other examples of good practice highlighted elsewhere, it is appropriate that we look for opportunities to showcase and share these. The Teaching and Learning Showcase will enable the winners to profile examples of excellent Teaching and Learning practice and to provide a forum for colleagues to discuss ways to adapt and implement ideas in their own areas.

The date identified to hold the second of these events is Wednesday 31st January 2018, and will run from 13:00 – 16:00 in the Chapman Building. Please see below details of the event together with the full programme of the day including details of the workshops.

Developing work-based learning opportunities within the University

About the event

This event offers a structured opportunity to network, make key contacts and explore the range of ways the University can act as its own ICZ to offer work-based learning opportunities within the University’s many different professional services and departments. The event will consider a range of work-based learning models including work shadowing, projects, non-traditional opportunities placements. The University is a large business with substantial opportunities across a wide range of functional areas. Taking opportunities to involve all staff in teaching and learning and bringing our learning and our work environments closer together will help us all enhance the learning experience for students. The workshop will offer the opportunity for academic staff to network with and discuss opportunities for WBL with colleagues from all of the University’s major services who will be represented at the event.

Supporting the event theme of internal networking and work-based learning, representatives from a range of University departments attending to discuss how we can use the University to support programmes in expanding interdisciplinary and work based learning.

Along with other speakers, Mike Brown, Director of the Engineering & Environments ICZ and former Director of Global Academic Programmes at Siemens, will be joining us to explain how programmes can get involved in the Greenpower Electric Car Challenge.

In addition, there will be two showcase sessions in which winners of the Vice-Chancellor’s Teaching Excellence Awards will present and discuss how their experience can enhance learning in other programmes

Workshop 1: Coaching Framework presented by Jackie Leigh

Our workshop will explore how we have transformed the culture for student learning through implementing a coaching framework for undergraduate nursing students within the School of Health & Society and Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA). We will showcase how we capitalise on our leadership backgrounds from healthcare organisations, Greater Manchester HEI’s and Health Education England-North West, along with our strategic networks to draw together isolated streams of work on improving support for student learning that are operationalising in the university, School of Health & Society, healthcare organisations and GMCA.
