    Active Learning: Writtle showcase

    At our next monthly ALN meeting we’re excited to extend a warm welcome to our new members from ARU Writtle and explore some active learning practice that takes place at our newest campus.
    Jade Terry will share her experiences using peer teaching as a tool to support learning among first-year and final-year veterinary physiotherapy students.
    Jon Amory will talk about the use of assessed debates to encourage students to create their own learning.
    Mick Lavelle will discuss two linked modules he oversees, where students are tasked with planning and cultivating a commercial crop. The assessment is not based on the task itself, but rather on a write-up of their actions and experiences.

    Book via Business World.

How to join

Workshops are open to all colleagues at ARU, and other members of the ARU ALN, and will be held on Microsoft Teams from 1-2pm, please email [email protected] if interested in joining us in Teams for our meeting.
