      Speaker: James Atherton, National Teaching Fellow & author of the excellent website: http://www.learningandteaching.info

      Recording of Session - NB: the sound is a bit poor to 20:05. At 20:05 you will need to skip forward to 28:40 to continue (whilst we fixed the sound.) You may just want to go to 28:40, you won't have missed much.

      What learning theories are good for. We (your input will be invaluable and will keep the discussion anchored) will identify several competing theories, evaluate their strengths and limitations for illuminating different kinds of learning, and their implications for the planning of teaching. In the process, we shall examine the theoretical model implicit in the design of this course and, if we have time, consider what it might look like if based on other models.

      Week 4 - Virtual Conference prep. Monday 17th February 4-5pm GMT

      The webinar will not feature a guest lecture but will be a chance for you to try out the live classroom yourself as a moderator in anticipation of the week 5 virtual conference webinars. So if you have a headset and microphone that would be great. There will also be a chance to ask questions about the virtual conference.

BCcampus serves British Columbia’s post-secondary sector. The publicly-funded programme aims to develop an open future for teaching practices and educational resources and is committed to being “open in everything we do”. Sylvia works in the Professional Learning division of BCcampus where she supports leaders of several Communities of Practice. She stewards two communities for educational practitioners: SCoPE and ETUG, and coordinates online and face to-face-workshops, conferences, and a variety of other events.
