Workshop Highlights: Interactive Learning and Lego Serious Play

TELFest is excited to offer two interactive and practical workshops throughout the day. Please note that these workshops have a limit of 30 people per session and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Designing for Interactive Learning: A Case at the Lab

Facilitated by Alexandra Webb, Katherine Esteves and Brian Billups (CHM)
11.00am – 12.30pm, Hedley Bull 3 (Seminar Room)

Critical thinking skills are essential for the 21st Century graduate to navigate through the “wicked problems” they will encounter during their careers. Technology enhanced learning (TEL) creates interactive learning opportunities for students to identify and solve complex problems, think critically about information, work effectively in teams and communicate clearly about their thinking in supported classroom environments. At the ANU Medical School and JCSMR we have been transforming our practical sessions to create more interactive learning opportunities supported by educational technology.

This will be a hands-on workshop focussed on educational design and TEL enablers to create interactive learning opportunities to enhance student problem solving and critical thinking.

This workshop is relevant to all staff who deliver large and small group teaching sessions and would like to incorporate more interactive learning opportunities that engage students in problem solving and critical thinking. Please bring a device.

Building on the bricks of the Lego Serious Play for the Classrooms experience

Facilitated by Stephen Dann (CBE), Emmaline Lear (COS) & Priscilla Kan John (CECS)
1.30 – 3.00pm, Hedley Bull 3 (Seminar Room)

A participant creates a model using LegoLego Serious Play (LSP) is a classroom facilitation technique designed to surface knowledge through the creation and discussion of three dimensional models of ideas, concepts and frameworks through Lego constructions. This workshop will be an opportunity to experience the LSP protocol in action across the course of a 90 minute session, where participants can engage in the process of visual metaphor construction, meaning making, and work their way through the process of surfacing knowledge, sharing ideas and engaging in meta-cognitive reflections on their own teaching practice within the session.

Please note: unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances we have had to cancel the third scheduled workshop on creating videos.

We hope you can join us on Monday 5 November 2018 in the Hedley Bull Centre.
