Steve Mann presents a seminar
Speaker: Steve Mann - University of Warwick
Room 313, 35 Berkeley Square, BS8 1JA. 16.00 - 18.00pmMany training and education programmes end with graduation or some kind of certificate. Any contact between students and university tutors from this symbolic 'end point' onwards is usually sporadic and sometimes non-existent. This talk considers what can be done to encourage contact and exchange beyond the limits of the teacher education programme. Drawing on examples from three projects at the University of Aston,University of Birmingham and the University of Warwick, the talk considers potential benefits in creating opportunities for reflection on an individual level and also in encouraging the development of on-line communities of practice.
