A project about fostering community learning, where the participants can share their knowledge to help and inspire others through story writing and studying stories.
The project is expected to be presented within/outside of Warwick University through seminar or conference. Students’ reflective feedback is being collected in audio format and and is expected to be shared along with the stories.
The outputs from this project are still pending and will be shared as soon as possible. Please check back in a few weeks.
I'm the Academic Lead for Teaching and Learning in the School of Modern Languages and Cultures. For many years now I've had a keen interest in liminal points in the learning journey of students studying Modern Foreign Languages (looking at the transition from school to university, the experience of Residence Abroad, and the movement from recipient to co-producer of learning). This current 'Tell Us a Story' project brings together some specific areas of interest for me: using creativity to promote personal reflections on the relationship between language learning, self and intercultural experience; celebrating and promoting language learning through outreach work with schools; encouraging 'near-peer' learning.
