Self Directed Learning Event

105/6, Level 1, Hallward Library

On Thursday 19 March, the Centre for Integrative Learning will be hosting a bite size Self Directed Learning themed event where two of our funded Project Leads will be giving a 15 minute presentation each on their projects followed by an informal Q&A.

It is a chance for those that have undertaken some activity in the area of self directed learning, or for those new to the issues involved, to come together over a light lunch between 12-2pm.

The speakers will be:

Paul Garrud, Assistant Director of Medical Education, GEM

Student-specific study strategy support: integrating appropriate approaches to learning.

It adds a student-centred, integrated set of support resources services, tools and modes of support.

Janice Yelland-Sutcliffe, Project Co-ordinator and Science Communicator

Using public engagement projects to enhance and develop creative learning and teaching in science and engineering. This project involves experimental and interactive activities that are then applied to real situations. It requires students to take on a multidisciplinary approach and apply interdisciplinary skills and knowledge of communication and project management.

The event is for all members of staff, postgraduates and student groups interested in teaching and learning developments so please feel free to forward the information.
