Thank you if you attended the workshop yesterday. A particular thanks to Alan Parkinson (who basically organised me and the workshop- it should have been his name under the title.) and John Sayers who were my co-presenters, thereby making sure I didn’t have too much time to humiliate myself.
The aim of the workshop was to consider informal collaboration of practitioners, as a way of developing approaches that aid student learning and engagement.
Alan will be collating all the resources on his blog at a later date. During the workshop I briefly discussed some areas of collaboration from my own practice.
I then referred to an article (again via Alan!) by Isbella Wallace about her use of poundstore pedaogogy. Adapting this idea for geography, I asked colleagues to devise some approaches using five items from the Tesco’s Handy range. The results can be viewed in this Google presentation.
Not bad for five minutes thinking. If you would like to add to the presentation please let me know. I also apologise if I have missed your idea or attributed it to someone else.
