SEDA has an established international reputation in providing high quality support and development for educational developers. Building upon the successful and highly acclaimed approaches of conferences, online award courses and residential schools we are now extending our provision with a short four week online workshop: Online Introduction to Educational Change.
The potential audience is based as much upon the role of participants as on their place within an institution (university or FE college) or organisation. We anticipate that this online workshop will have particular appeal to early career academic developers; departmental learning and teaching co-ordinators; and others such as learning support staff and those involved in substantial projects or change initiatives. The workshop will be appropriate for an international audience.
This workshop has recently been re-designed to follow an ‘inquiry-based learning’ approach. Using the SEDA Values as a guiding framework, participants will explore and co-construct meaning in relation to their practice. This is done with support from everyone involved. This short collaborative event is entirely online and offers a flexible model of professional development. Throughout the workshop, participants will be working as a ‘community of inquiry’ with the agenda very much driven by the interests of those involved. Through dialogue and interaction, participants share and discuss current practice in a relational approach. The activities and resources typically generate diverse perspectives to inform thinking and offering practical ideas to support educational change.
This 4-week workshop will run from 1st March 2021 to 28th March 2021. It will be run online in an asynchronous mode and it will require you to be able to engage for up to seven hours a week and work as part of a learning community. The language for this workshop will be English.
