The principles provide a useful starting point for reflection and development of learning and teaching methods, allowing for continual change and improvement in HOW teachers teach and learners learn (as well as how teachers learn, and how students teach themselves and each other).
2017/8 sees the return of the SALT Seminar / Workshop Programme, with this year's theme being the '7 Characteristics'.
The button below offers a fuller account, along with some examples of how the principles can be implemented in teaching, learning and assessment.
2017/18's seminars and workshops aim to illustrate successful implementation of the principles, which may be of interest to (and provide support for) academic staff wishing to further develop their approach.
The first seminar took place in November 2017 at the Bay campus, 'Lightboard in Engineering' (blog and video recording link here) and the second was at the Singleton campus on Wednesday February 14th 2018, 'Closing the Gap' with Scenario-based learning (video recording here). The third, on 'Audio Feedback' took place on March 14th 2018 (video to follow).
Next are two workshops on 'The Use of Archives in Teaching and Learning' from the Richard Burton Archives staff, together with academic staff with whom they have recently collaborated (more information and booking links below).
All seminars and workshops link to the '7Cs' and are multi-disciplinary in application.
