Future Teacher 3.0

Being part of the Learning Technologies team at Petroc means spending our time investigating, exploring, testing and using new technologies with the aim to  support lecturers incorporate these tools into learning, teaching and assessment. We are constantly collaborating with colleagues in other FE colleges, either on Twitter, face to face at conferences, via MOOC’s or taking part in webinars.

Currently myself, Jane and Sally  are taking part in a monthly Future Teacher 3.0. webinar series which is part of Future Teacher Talks 2017 UK. 

“The general aim of the webinars is to provide a platform for exploring, discussing and sharing effective practice and to provide free tools and resources to support you and your colleagues including the opportunity to participate and contribute to the wider project which is also completely free and will provide opportunities for more formal participation.”

The discussion point for the first webinar  was ‘Online Learning! what works?’, this allowed us to look at the methods, impact and technology used for online learning.

The second webinar was all about ‘The flipped classroom’ this started off with a flipped activity which we had to complete before the webinar,  those who completed the activity were rewarded with a mention!

Being rewarded for completing the activity in time!!!

This session covered practice, research, tools and strategy. It was interesting to hear from colleagues in other FE colleges discuss their experiences of using flipped learning, which was positive and sometimes negative, especially where there had been problems embedding it into the curriculum.

The next webinar is  ‘Knowing what they know- getting feedback from students’ if you are interested in taking part in this free program of webinars, the link to the website is here Future Teacher Talks
