Course Documents



As part of the Active Learning CoP (Community of Practice), we will be hearing from colleagues from the University of Glasgow on creative pedagogies for active learning. Nathalie Tasler and Vicki Dale will start with an overview of creative pedagogies and how they engage the head, heart and hands in learning. The practical focus is on outdoor pedagogies.

Gareth Beale will present interactive media work conducted with field school archaeology students surveying landscapes in Glencoe. Matt Offord will present his work on eco-pedagogies with business and management students, focusing on authentic assessment in the era of AI and data.

There will be opportunity for participants to reflect on and discuss the role of outdoor learning to actively engage students, exploring sub themes such as educational technology, inclusion, practical skills development, and assessment.

What are the benefits?

Participants will get to hear and interact with colleagues from the University of Glasgow, while having the opportunity to reflect and discuss on how similar creative pedagogies can be applied to their own context.
