Last week we hosted the first in our popular series of interactive lunchtime workshops, Show, Tell and Talk. Kicking off this academic year’s series was a very busy session on the subject of Pedagogic research culture.
We’ve made a few subtle changes to the format following your feedback from last year’s series, which indicated that participants prefer a greater emphasis on practical information/skills sharing and more opportunities for discussion. We’re reducing the length of the presentations to give more time for group discussions and ending each session with a more informal chat over tea and biscuits.
Hosted by Sheena Warman, our first session encouraged the assembled participants to discuss three key questions which could help us improve the culture surrounding pedagogic research here at Bristol. Sheena and her team of facilitators did a fabulous job of keeping the session flowing in a ‘world café’ style, with Sheena commenting how great it was to see all the planning come together so successfully.

One down, five to go
We’ll be running five more workshops covering the key BILT themes for this academic year between now and May 2024, and they are all available to register now. All the remaining 90 minute workshops take place in person at the same venue (Room 1.20, 35 Berkeley Square) at 1pm on a Wednesday lunchtime.
Next up we have an interesting workshop on the ‘International student experience’. You can choose to register for the Show, Tell and Talk learning path meaning you’ll be enrolled for all five sessions, or you can pick out the ones you want to attend and register individually. Head over to our events page to see the full list and we’ll see you at our next session.
