A Rare Event!!!

Congratulations to #LTHEchat colleagues who have been awarded an #LTHEchat ‘Golden Tweet Award’. https://lthechat.com/

“This spring we would like to award a triple Golden Tweeter Award to our exiting #LTHEchat organising team from Jan to March 2020, Dr Nathalie SheridanDr Dawne Irving-Bell and their mentor Dr Chris Jobling who worked tirelessly and with great commitment on the steering wheel of the chat under challenging circumstances. We are grateful for all their hard work, professionalism and creative input. This team has come up with interventions that have been proactive and responsive to real problems we are all facing and shown that together we can get through this.

This team and their mentor Chris has shown that introducing rotating organising teams some years ago and now even mentors who have previously supported the chat and the #LTHEchat community can be a sustainable solution for such an open professional development initiative. A special massive thank you to Chris for many years of engagement and commitment to the whole #LTHEchat community. What would we do without you?”

Supporting Transition to HE Study

What happens?

Students on the BA Hons Teaching, Learning & Child Development programme are introduced to assessment protocols and practices in a series of seminars at the beginning of Year 1.   After the first assessment point in semester 1 each PAT meets with their group of 10 tutees to reflect on the feedback / feed-forward received for the first piece of summatively assessed work.  The PATs use the GROW model of coaching with the students to unpick the assessment feed-forward and to target set for future work.

What was the impact?

Students left the group tutorial feeling they understood how to interpret tutor feed-forward comments and how to action plan.  Action planning is shared with the PAT and students had a clear understanding of how to track their own academic progress using the Progress and Development Profile
