IMG_1218Easter 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.

IMG_1239Working 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.
