Glyndŵr University hosts its 3rd Annual Exposition of Innovation in Teaching and Learning
The students of these courses all teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector in a variety of educational settings. 75 students came together in a unique opportunity to showcase their work, in the Catrin Finch Centre at the University.
Students are required to write a proposal on ‘an innovative method of teaching’ as part of their final course module and Glyndwr’s Exposition provided an opportunity for students to share insights from their work.
Dr Peter Gossman said, “The aim is to get the teachers to be more creative. It is far too easy for them to get stuck in their ways. This module tries to get them to look again at creative ways to go about their work.”
The day started with representatives from each institution giving a short presentation on their groups’ work. The students then presented their work and then took the opportunity to ask questions of each other on their ideas and teaching techniques.
The day’s events were organised by Programme Leader Allison O’Sullivan who said, “This latest Exposition has been another great success, with students learning, sharing and enjoying their experiences. Events like this are very important in encouraging new ideas, and really pushing the students to go that extra step!”
Glyndŵr University offers a number of courses in education, including the Professional Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) and Certificate in Education, plus foundation degrees and honours degrees in Post Compulsory Education and Training, playwork, families and childhood studies, and in the learning and development of babies and young children.
