TOD – Creative – Student Voice

Kirsty ‘time for tea’ Farrant presented on how student voice is used in her 3SCI course in order to show how the creative process could be used to develop active learning. The overarching point was around how we shouldn’t be threatened by losing control and we should see students being at the centre of their learning as a positive. Some other key ideas included:

  • Monitoring student work and the progress through assessment spreadsheets that are open and accessible to all students.
  • What does the classroom look like? Student centred – reactive to need: sometimes class discussion, sometimes independent learning.
  • The importance of modelling  walking away from things without regrets and finding learning within that process. Shifting the thinking around ‘mistakes’ and ‘failure’ to see these as important learning opportunities.
