Forthcoming EdLab and FASoS CPD workshops in April and May

EdLab has just announced its forthcoming CPD workshops for April. Click on ‘read more’ for a full overview.

An overview of FASoS workshops is available here. Two new workshops are currently being prepared:

  • A workshop on using games in PBL, scheduled for 6 May from 13.30 – 15.30
  • A workshop on using online tools for interactive lecturing, scheduled for 11 May from 11.00 – 13.00

More information on these new workshops will follow shortly.

EDLunch: A reflection on ‘problems’ in PBL Task Design
14 April 2020 | 12.00 – 13.30

Students do not always execute a proper pre-discussion that evokes self-study motivation and mobilises pre-knowledge. Students handle tasks as if they were little puzzles wherein keywords are hidden by the course designer to be discovered. During the pre-discussion, students merely list those keywords on the board, but once that is done, the brainstorm does not take off. I have coined this uninformed pre-discussing and shallow brainstorming as concept darting, which has detrimental effects on PBL. I argue that a significant part of the solution to challenge our students lies in carefully designing problems. But what could such problems entail?

Team-based learning and assessment
21 April 2020 | 13.30 – 15.30

Do you want to motivate your students to study more regularly and be better prepared not only for their final exam? Then this workshop offers you the chance to explore the pros and cons of the team-based learning (TBL) format.

Managing Group / Team Dynamics
22 April 2020 | 10.00 – 14.00

Why do some student groups/teams run smoothly and efficiently while others seem to get stuck in miscommunication, conflict and frustration? Most of the time, the answers can be found in the group or team dynamics. Now how do you work with these dynamics in a way that enhances team collaboration and performance? What are the main challenges and how do you manage them? And what do you need to know about yourself in managing these processes? If you are UM teaching staff, working with groups or teams of students, be it in tutorials, projects, skills sessions, internships, or if you are planning to do so in the near future, this workshop might be of interest to you. The workshop is highly interactive, experiential and practical.
