Education and Training Poster Exhibition
Exhibition of Posters for Advanced Teaching Strategies Cregan Library May 2018
This week featured an exhibition of posters in the Cregan Library which highlighted the work of the second year students and the Erasmus students who completed their group presentations this semester. The posters highlight the group work of the students who completed the ES208 Advanced Teaching Strategies Module for the B.Sc in Education and Training. The students were invited to research and present one research teaching strategy as part of their final assessment and to reflect on a strategy which might be of benefit to them now and in their future teaching practice. The students presented a group presentation as part of their assessment related to peer assessment, digital learning, 21st century learning, intergenerational learning and the use of physical fitness as some examples of teaching strategies relevant in the classroom now and in the future.
The posters were designed by two of the students, one Erasmus student and one second year in Education and Training student and these were designed according to each powerpoint presentation presented by the groups at the end of semester two. Funding for the printing of the posters was provided by the Institute of Education Teaching and Learning Fund. Neogen printed the posters for this exhibition. It is planned that the posters will be exhibited again in the library later in the new academic year for our incoming students to view the work of previous students. The photograph shows Dr Elaine Mc Donald, Head of the School of Policy and Practice, Dr Francesca Lorenzi who is the coordinator of the second year students and Dr Trudy Corrigan who is a lecturer for the Advanced Teaching Module viewing the posters together with some of the Erasmus and second year students who participated in this module.The Exhibition of these posters is still available to view in the library and all staff and students in the Institute of Education are welcome to view these posters over the coming days.
