Creating active learning materials takes time and thought, but arguably the enthusiasm, engagement and development of professional skills that come alongside knowledge acquisition provides students with competences and capabilities that develop confidence and workplace skills.
Experiential learning is so different from ‘being told something’. It can be done with large numbers, but requires thought in construction and delivery, and relevant assessment. Whatever delivery style is chosen (case study; problem based learning; critical incident analysis; role play, simulation, games) the discipline relevance is crucial. Aligning activity to processes and assignments that are common in the workplace in early years is very helpful in promoting relevance and developing professional competencies. This session will explore opportunities for creating your own materials.
