New years resolutions #creativeHE

Is one of your New Year’s Resolutions to develop your teaching practice? Joining the #creativeHE network could help you achieve this goal and there are many ways you can get involved.

The main action for #creativeHE happens via the Google+ community. This is an informal learning space where we share ideas and resources to help us develop our teaching practices. We also use #creativeHE on Twitter and the Creative Academic magazine as ways to share and develop. There are regular #creativeHE weeks which contain specific activities to explore and maximise our creativity. In the North West, we also hold regular meet-ups where we play with educational approaches and tools, share our lunch and grow our networks. More information on each of these below…

#creativeHE week  22-26/01/2018

Explore together fresh, alternative and novel ways to transform learning, teaching and assessment into creative and diverse practice. Let’s make it a bit or a lot more stimulating. Just imagine how our ideas can grow and evolve when we share them and learn together. The plan is:

  • Day 1 Creative induction, introductions: belonging
  • Day 2 Spicing up learning in the classroom (campus-based, blended and fully online)
  • Day 3 Extending creative learning outside the classroom
  • Day 4 Assessment and feedback that works (better)
  • Day 5 Reflecting on the week and moving forward.

So what’s stopping you from getting involved? Just 5 minutes involvement can spark an idea that will influence your development as an educator. You will see the benefits and your students will too!

See you on the dancefloor 🙂
