Working group project EOI – The Manifesto for Teaching Online
DeFL is putting together a working group to respond to the recent call for responses around Siân Bayne, Peter Evans, Rory Ewins, Jeremy Knox, James Lamb, Hamish Macleod, Clara O’Shea, Jen Ross, Philippa Sheail, and Christine Sinclair (2020). The Manifesto for Teaching Online. Cambridge, MA: MIT Press. If you are interested in joining this group please let Cheryl or Kathryn know.
Call for Chapters – Industry in Education (Edited Book)
Kathryn is currently putting together a book exploring the integration of industry practices and techniques in teaching. If you are interested in potentially putting an article to this please talk to Kathryn and she will be happy to help
Working Group for Cross-curricular into STEM New course in the BTchLn Programme
The School of Ed is currently redeveloping their BTchLn programme.
One of the proposed new courses in the final year of the Primary Endorsement is a course (yet to be named) focusing on supporting teachers design learning that is cross-curricular. While this will be wider than just the DT areas (we are generally focused on cross-curricular into STEM), DT will have a strong influence. David Pomeroy and Kathryn are leading this development and we are currently engaging with teachers to explore how this would actually look. So if you are interested in talking about this more (particularly from a primary viewpoint – but open to a wider view too), let Kathryn know and she will connect you with the reference group we have for this project.
