Public Engagement at Manchester

Free webinar: Building Study Skills & Student Engagement

The pandemic forced us into isolation, and we needed to find new ways to connect across distances and support engaged learning in the process.

I am delighted to announce that the teaching innovations we developed to help overcome these challenges have been awarded the Association of European Schools of Planning (AESOP) 2021 prize for ‘Excellence in Teaching’.

Join me and the teaching team in a free webinar to explore lessons learned during the pandemic around active learning and engagement across settings. One of these lessons was the value of using public participation methods to support engagement, and labelling them as such – so students are aware that they are developing skills they can use in future engagement.

Dates: Aug. 17th 2-3 PM BST OR Sept. 9th 2-3 PM British Standard Time

You will learn how the digital canvas Padlet was integrated with sense of place exercises and use of Ketso Connect, an individual, hands-on learning tool. The webinar will explore how these innovations can work across settings – in remote, dual, face-to-face and socially distanced teaching.

The webinar will be of interest to educators and those at the intersection of education and public engagement. All are welcome.
