A practical hands-on session using both 'old and new' teaching and learning techniques. Ones that can help make a difference when you're trying to encourage participation in the classroom. In this session you have the opportunity to choose from a ‘menu’ of approaches, techniques and ideas as well as those shared by colleagues. You decide for yourself what works for you and your students (or not!) and then give it a go ‘diving’ straight in using these lo-tech approaches. The event is designed to enable you to add quick strategies to your teaching ‘toolkit’ and to select those that will make a difference on the days when you want to change delivery or apply a different technique. A great opportunity to learn from peers and to be involved in a community of shared practices.

What are the benefits?

• Apply straight away
• Easy to learn and implement - ideal for busy academics
• Open to adaptation
• Shared experiences during and afterwards
• Bring along a technique of your own to 'show and tell'
• Solutions for less confident or shy participants, sharing ideas...

Who should attend?

Great for those new to teaching but also for anyone involved in teaching and learning wanting to refresh ideas and learn/share from wider colleagues.
