ALSIG: Creative Momentum Around Active learning

Following on from their recent blog post Creating Momentum Around Transformative Active Learning, Dr Theresa Nicholson and Dr Carmen Herrero will share their aspirations and strategy for developing an institution-wide Active Learning Community of Practice (ALCoP) at Manchester Metropolitan University. We will provide a contextual overview of the strategic background to ALCoP, and progress so far.

The interactive part of the webinar will then focus on exploring:

1. Different perspectives on the scope of 'active learning', and

2. Strategies for building communities that (a) foster creativity and innovation, (b) offer support, mentoring and professional development for practitioners, and (c) provide practical routes for resource development, dissemination, scholarship and publication.

There will be lots of opportunities for participants to share their experiences, ask questions, and learn from each other.
