C sap legacy-project

  1. 1. C-SAP legacy project: Tell us about the impact of the subject centre on yourteaching in social science disciplinesOver the past ten years, the aim of C-SAP (Higher Education Academy Subject Centre forSociology, Anthropology and Politics) has been to support teaching and learning within thesocial sciences subject areas, and to improve the student learning experience. C-SAP hasworked towards raising the profile of teaching across social sciences by producing a numberof relevant resources, including reports, teaching guides and a manuscript series. The centrehas also offered a variety of opportunities for staff and student involvement, including anannual tranche of mini-projects, as well as a series of events, workshops, and other activitiesled by our subject academic co-ordinators and C-SAP Associates.As of the 1st of August 2011, C-SAP Subject Centre will be moving into a period of transition.A number of activities will occur up until December 2011, when discipline provision willmove entirely to the Higher Education Academy. As part of transition activities, we arecollecting stories of impact that the centre has had on the provision of teaching andlearning in the social sciences. We would like to encourage contributions from colleagues atall stages in their careers who have benefitted from opportunities provided by C-SAP.Importantly, we are not prescribing the meaning of “impact” as we interpret it quitebroadly; for instance, involvement in C-SAP events might have inspired you to re-thinkelements of your teaching practice or encouraged to try new teaching techniques.We would like to hear about ways in which your involvement in C-SAP over the past tenyears has made an impact on you, your teaching and/or your career, no matter how smallthat impact may have been. We have provided some prompts below which you may use tostart thinking about the impact of C-SAP on your academic practice, however they aremerely suggestions and your contribution can take many different forms.If you wish to contribute to the project, there are a number of different ways (deadline forall contributions is 31 October 2011): - Send your account (maximum of 500-600 words) to admin@c-sap.bham.ac.uk - Add your contribution to the collaborative document on Google Docs by following the link http://bit.ly/csaplegacyproject - Add your contribution in the form of an audio file (mp3 or similar format, ideally no longer than 5 minutes) to our audioboo.fm channel http://audioboo.fm/csaplegacyproject - Submit a video to our YouTube channel http://www.youtube.com/user/csaplegacyprojectThis content is licensed under Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 2.0 UK:England & Wales http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/ C-SAP, 2011 1
