Workshop: connection, calibration, consistency (08 Feb 1200-1300) Friday 2nd February 2018 events / News Workshop: connection, calibration, consistency, Thursday 8 February 1200-1330 CLC G.27 My colleagues and I conceived a loosely linked series of workshops aimed at inculcating employability skills and attitudes into curricular learning and teaching practice. And by the way to say somethings we believe about “good” learning and teaching. Neil Currant took “Community“. Mary Deane took”Confidence“. Mary Kitchener took “Challenge“. For me the word that first stuck in my head was “Calibration“. Not the most flirtatious title. But, it captured more of what we are trying to do than many other Cs, which kept tumbling out. Two more stuck with me: Connection and Consistency. We want to know where we are. We want to know what and how to do what we do, which is to make connections, and to do that repeatably well: consistently across a range of people and contexts (“high calibre“). Come to the Calibration workshop to discover ways of knowing, ways of doing and ways of being for the purpose of teaching and learning: meeting the other with presence and attention. This, we suggest, may help us to calibrate learning gain.
