This project will explore how teaching staff developed new tools to enhance learning during Covid lockdown.
The use of appreciative inquiry is a positive approach to learning about the tutor’s experiences during lockdown and focus on the new learning tools used that were deemed a success.
The project will explore the success tutors have had with the use of new learning tools that were used during the Covid lockdown.
The plan will be to demonstrate a variety of tools that cover the spectrum of the learning cycle. This may include:
The output for this project will include a number of short videos that highlight the use of innovative tools. These will not be long, instructive videos, but short, dynamic videos with an intention to motivate tutors to find out more about new learning tools.
This is linked to the Teaching and Learning Strategy’s priorities:
The sharing of the project resources will provide a variety of ideas to help all tutors develop their own practice. The dissemination of the project output will be in the form of short videos and delivery at a CPD training day.
The target is to produce at least ten short videos that cover different processes in the learning cycle. The short videos will not intend to instruct how to use different learning tools, but stimulate interest and further exploration for the tutors.
The appreciative inquiry process will focus on what went well during the period for the Covid lockdown. The dialogue will identify stories of success and new tools that had an impact on learning.
