Lecturer, Matthew Gordon, conducts presentation on the use of webinars to engage students.
English lecturer, Matthew Gordon, took part in and presented at the Advanced Practitioner (South) Conference at South Essex College on this month. His presentation featured his ongoing collaboration with Shipley College (a leading FE college in West Yorkshire), on the use of webinars to engage students.
Advanced Practitioners attended in their numbers to share excellent practices around quality improvement with the rest of the further education sector. The day was filled with opportunities to discuss, learn from and practise new and impactful approaches to quality improvement.
Matthew said: “The event was extremely successful, vibrant and energetic! It led to further collaboration projects with several other Advanced Practitioners around the use of webinars as a teaching tool, as well as a method to promote sharing good practice among educators themselves.
“I would like to say a special thank you to Andy Crissell and Jane Chillingworth at South Essex College, Jan Calvert from Shipley College.”
Matthew’s presentation also highlighted some of the core quality practices here at the College such as enhanced teaching, learning and assessment methods across subject areas.
As a follow-up to the event, a series of webinars (mini - 'Ted-talks') are now in the planning stages. To find out more about the event, and to download materials from all the sessions, please click HERE.
