Supporting and Encouraging Criticality

Researching

In the Institute for Learning and Teaching we have an increasing number of CPD and PGT courses running, and one of the distinct challenges in dealing with such courses resides in the lack of recent experience amongst many of the participants – that is, experience in learning. Many participants have qualified in their fields some time ago and need support in getting back into the swing of things. This includes things like reflecting critically, and working smart.

We’ve put together a series of resources that we are making available within all of our modules. These resources focus on things like ‘Working at Masters Level’, ‘ Managing Literature in Mendeley’, and ‘How to Conduct Library Searches’.

Feel free to embed these links in your own modules if you find them useful!!!
