Social Media for Learning

Sharing teaching excellence and learning gain

I facilitated a workshop at the  SEDA Spring Teaching Learning and Assessment Conference in Manchester on celebrating learning gain and teaching excellence through social media and digital narratives. The theme for the event was The quest for teaching excellence and learning gain: issues, resolutions and possibilities. One of the key issues was not only defining what is meant by the terms teaching excellence and learning gain, but grappling with how the impact could be evidenced and measured.

The context for the theme of my workshop and the conference is the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF). In short the Government is introducing the TEF and aims to recognise and reward excellent learning and teaching.

The workshop I gave intended to get participants thinking about how we can use digital narratives and social media to capture and celebrate:

  • good teaching – through sharing openly what has worked well and why
  • student learning achievements
