Enhancing teaching and learning in vocational education
A series of workshops in different centres around New Zealand presented by Selena Chan as part of Ako Aotearoa's Professional Development Programme.
About the workshop
"I am going to try peer learning and will start a personal journal"
In this workshop, participants explore recent Ako Aotearoa-funded vocational education projects that have resulted in changes in practice, leading to increased benefits for learners.
In group discussion participants work through some of the frameworks and findings presented, including peer feedback, and how these may be applicable to their own teaching context.
The facilitator, Dr Selena Chan from Christchurch Polytechnic Institute of Technology introduces participants to an important touchstone for becoming a better teacher through reflective practice (from Stephen Brookfield, 1995). The workshop introduces ideas to help participants engage with small projects that will enhance their practice through ‘research’ and reflection.
This workshop will be of particular interest to those working in trades and vocational education.
