An interactive and collaborative approach to staff development - Marion Miller - Jisc Digital Festival 2014


Published on

It can be a challenge to provide engaging and interactive staff development that equips staff with the skills they need to contextualise and apply technology in their own teaching. The challenge is even greater when you need to change attitudes towards technology and encourage team working.

This will demonstrate a ‘Roadshow’ approach and how this has made a major impact within Learning Providers. Armed with a variety of mobile technologies for participants to explore, the Roadshow provides interactive training with an emphasis on collaborative scenario based activities, aimed at teachers and trainers. Participants are encouraged to chose a scenario or invent their own scenario, taking into consideration a particular student/group that they teach. They then use the technology to create a resource they then ‘sell’ the idea to the whole group.
