Creative Learning Conference
FVC lecturing staff develop ideas at Creative Learning Conference
Forth Valley College lecturing staff gathered at the Stirling Campus recently (Tuesday 13 August) for the annual Creative Learning Conference event.
This year’s event focussed on key contemporary themes in learning and teaching including promoting positive learner behaviour, inclusive practice, technologies to enhance learning and the use of animation and comic strips in teaching and learning. The conference was developed as a collaboration with the Human Resources Department, Learning and Quality and supported by staff across the college.
The day began with a welcome and keynote address from Principal Dr Ken Thomson, followed by an address from Jim Metcalfe, Chief Executive of College Development Network (CDN). Staff then took advantage of the numerous workshops and activities on offer throughout the day.
Fiona Brown FVC Associate Principal and Executive Director - Learning and Quality, said: “The day was very worthwhile and a great opportunity for lecturers to work in smaller groups and develop ideas and initiatives that could potentially work very well on a larger scale. We hope everyone enjoyed the activities and that this Creative Learning Conference will be a springboard to another successful and creative year at Forth Valley College.”
Ralph Burns, FVC Head of Human Resources, said: “It is always a memorable experience to watch months of hard work and dedication from a wide range of staff, come together and be presented in a well organised and meaningful event. As we move on to an All Staff Development Event in 2020 our aim is to recreate this success formula and continue to provide a first class event.”
