Return of the 7C's Seminar and Workshop Programme
We are pleased to inform Swansea University staff that the ‘Seven Characteristics of a Good University Teacher’ seminar and workshop programme offered by SALT is running again throughout the academic year 2018/19. Feedback from last year's session was really positive, with attendees finding them valuable and enjoyable CPD events.
Monthly sessions will once again be on Wednesdays at 13:00-14:00 hrs, at either Singleton or the Bay Campus. We would love to see people in person, but where possible, we will also be using Blackboard Collaborate – a webinar tool – to make it even easier to join in. Most sessions will also be recorded for later viewing.
All staff are welcome to attend this year’s programme. Contact Rhian at SALT for more information on attending, suggestions for sessions or if you would like to deliver an event - email@example.com ext.4302.
Seminar 1 – October 2018 – Experiential Learning
The first seminar this year was presented earlier this month by Prof. Richard Owen, from Swansea University’s Hilary Rodham Clinton School of Law. Richard explained the delivery and development of ‘Experiential Learning’ modules in the context of Chickering and Gamson’s ‘Seven Principles of Good Practice’. The inspirational session included consideration of how these experiences can be adapted to other disciplines, and a video recording of the event will be available via the SALT TV link on our website very soon.
Seminar 2 - November 2018 - Feedback Journals
The second seminar will take place on the 14th November 2018 (at the SALT Offices Singleton Campus at 1pm). Presented by Dr Joanne Berry from Swansea University’s College of Arts and Humanities, the aim of this session is to discuss the impact that a pilot ‘Feedback Journal’, had on the engagement and development of students at Swansea University.
The journal was designed to help students reflect on their academic journey, and to provide their Academic Mentors with tools to stimulate specific and detailed discussion about how each individual student could improve their academic performance. The session will address the intended and unintended consequences of this initiative, and staff and student responses to it, in the context of Chickering and Gamson’s ‘Seven Principles of Good Practice’.

This will be part of a series of events in 'Feedback Week' - Details Below
