Easter means the ALDInHE annual conference! This year a wide range of themes were explored, and a great time was had, at Southampton Solent University. Resources will shortly be available from the conference website http://www.aldinhe.ac.uk/events/solent15.html
Debbie Holley and colleagues from the Professional Development Working Group offered a creativity workshop to explore the use of collage to address ‘threshold concepts and troublesome knowledge’ (Land and Meyer 2003) where students find it difficult to grasp concepts.
Working in groups, the participants created collages and found new ways of thinking about supporting students. Feedback comments included ‘a very inspiring session/ a simple idea and so effective/ has given me ideas.’
These ideas, and more can be explored further at the ALDinHE one day ‘Look/Make/Learn Conference on Tuesday 12 May at the London Metropolitan University Graduate Centre, the prestigious Daniel Libeskind building, one of the 10 most iconic University Buildings in the country.
