Workshop Series

We are excited to announce our Open-Space Learning (OSL) tenth anniversary event

We are celebrated the tenth anniversary of the Open-Space Learning (HEA Project 2009-11) by convening a series of workshops which revisits areas of university pedagogy in the spirit of the original project. This occasional series 'opens-up' teaching and learning in a variety of contexts, from participatory workshops to inclusive pedagogies.

Events Coming Up

Past Events

Opening-Up: Emerging Pedagogies for Higher Education

Humanities Studio, 10am-6pm, 5 July 2019

Registration & Coffee 10-10.30am

The morning workshop (10.30am-1pm)

Settling the CETLs: Centres for Excellence in Teaching and Learning Revisit

This will bring together alumni and associate fellows to address the legacy of CETLs within contemporary higher education, addressing the notion of educational utopias in a time of social and political upheaval. The event will also consider how pedagogies such as the Student-as-Researcher and Open-Space Learning were nurtured and developed within our academic community. Following the session a buffet lunch will be provided, and a planning session for the next cycle of workshops and academic events.

Lunch 1-2pm

Alyson Campbell (VCA, University of Melbourne), Cath Lambert (Warwick Sociology) and Jonathan Heron (IATL) to address issues of diversity and inclusion in relation to universities as ‘open-spaces’ for all. This open workshop will feature provocations on radically inclusive teaching practices that draw upon the rich tapestry of queer and feminist pedagogy within (and beyond) university contexts. Following the session there will be a drinks reception to launch the Opening-up workshop series.

Drinks Reception 4.30-6pm (IATL Foyer)
