As we head towards the end of 2018, CALRG aims to finish the year on a high with a month devoted to IET’s Professional and Digital Learning group. November kicked off yesterday with a seminar detailing four projects that the group are involved: how energy companies learn following incidents, strategies employed by finance professionals to learn during times of uncertainty, tensions arising in large-scale changes of higher educational institutes, and the use of social media by medical students as a way of learning.
The schedule is slightly changed from the normal CALRG format this month to avoid clashes with other events. But be sure to come along and take part in the rest of the PDL CALRG month:
- 8th November – Cake week: This time the theme will be balloon debates
- 15th November – Workshop: PDL will present various ideas on upcoming bids for people to discuss and get involved in
- 29th November – Panel discussion: We invite academics from various backgrounds within the learning sciences to discuss a question central to the PDL group – ‘what is learning’
Looking forward to seeing you all then.
