T-Pulse was pleased to co-sponsor with MITI a talk by Dr Graham Scott, National Teaching Fellow, Head of Biological Sciences, University of Hull, UK.
Experiential and student managed learning as a means to promote student satisfaction, autonomy and engagement with learning.
In this seminar I will use case studies and evaluations of practice drawn from a typical UK Biological Sciences department to explore the links between experiential learning, Student Managed Learning (SML) and undergraduate perceptions of their own learner autonomy. In doing so, I will explore the value of experience, ownership and choice in the promotion of student engagement with learning. Case studies will focus around fieldwork and field and classroom based SML but will also include the research/teaching/learning nexus and learning in the context of engagement with employers and professional practices.
