Beco w7 what is a conference - Universities as sites of knowledge-production; students as partners

330 views

Published on

The activities moved from drawing 'research' to discussing how universities act as sites of knowledge-construction. Also covered: student as producer, student as change agent and student as partner. The first year students were asked if they had a model for active students they would like to explore in an HEA Bid - and if they wanted to organise the University's next student-facing conference (Feb 2014). Excellent poster presentations given.

  9. 9. • Look – Draw – Make: Using the Visual to transform pedagogic practices • • You are invited to our one-day conference, hosted at London Metropolitan University to explore how Visual learning practices are becoming mainstream in the digital age. Drawing upon experiences of ‘Draw to Learn’ (from the LearnHigher CETL); MOOC participation; and recent classroom practice – we explore the embedding of a series of Visual tasks in classrooms across the disciplines. This day will inform, challenge and offer you practical ways to transform practice.
